Ans: Blood sugar levels can be lowered gradually by lifestyle modifications. Ensure your diet consists of more complex carbohydrates like whole grains, fruits, vegetables, etc., low fat foods, good protein sources like low fat dairy products, eggs, lean meat, pulses and legumes, etc. Avoid sweets, bakery products, chocolates, savories, carbonated beverages, alcohol, etc. These will spike your blood sugar levels. Focus on portion control and follow a regular exercise regimen.
