NUTS (without salt or sugar) contain mono and polyunsaturated fats which are good for insulin sensitivity and serum cholesterol. So if your blood sugar is high, eat at least five pieces of almonds or walnuts daily, according to the Nurses Health Study.
On the other hand, cornstarch isn’t just for making gravy. More than a thickener, cornstarch helps control high blood-sugar levels. It could even prevent an attack of hypoglycemia. Because it is absorbed slowly, it is effective for type 1 diabetics prone to low blood-glucose levels. Research shows that diabetics who consume a mixture of uncooked cornstarch in a drink without sugar (milk or sugar-free soda) find themselves waking up in the morning with fewer problems. Consult your doctor about this natural solution.
