I go to the gym Every day How to reduce fasting sugar levels

Ans: A fasting blood sugar level of 135 to 145mg/dl is indicative of out of range levels. An HbA1c test will give a clear picture of your blood sugar levels. For monitoring and controlling blood sugar levels, you must focus on a high fiber and complex carbohydrate diet including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, beans, pulses, etc. Protein foods are important to avoid blood sugar spikes. Have small frequent meals. Avoid sugars, white bread, chocolates, high fat foods, savouries, etc. Exercise regularly to reduce body fat and increase lean mass.
