How Drinking Water Can Help In Lowering The Blood Sugar

Posted on October 5, 2019 How Drinking Water Can Help In Lowering The Blood Sugar

         “When you can’t solve the problem, manage it”- Robert H. Schuller

This quote is apt for the perilous situation of 3 million deaths annually worldwide, due to elevated glucose in the blood. Once a person is diagnosed with Diabetes, it often means medication, exercise, diet control and a mix and match of these solutions. While it may be difficult to get rid of Diabetes, management may be the way forward.

One often overlooked tip in the control of Diabetes, is the importance of drinking enough water. To begin with, Diabetes often leaves you with greater thirst and therefore it becomes all the more important to be able to remain sufficiently hydrated. It is important to understand what role water plays in lowering blood sugar because it is one of the easiest ways to do it.

Studies have shown that when blood sugar levels are high, the body requires more fluid to help the kidneys excrete excess sugar through urine. Drinking water helps to rehydrate the blood when this process is on. If access to safe drinking water is limited, glucose may not be passed out of the urine, leading to further dehydration. As water contains no carbohydrate or calories, it is the perfect drink for people with diabetes. As tap water may be contaminated, the use of purified drinking water is recommended.

Hence, when it comes to water disinfection especially for diabetic patients it is important to opt for the best UV water purifier for home use.

Apart from the control of blood sugar, drinking sufficient quantities of purified water may also prevent stroke, heart attack, and damage to retinas, nerves, and kidneys.

So how much water should you drink a day?

There is no definitive rule for how much water you should drink, but there are guidelines we can follow. The general recommendation is at least 8 glasses of purified water per day. Also, depending on the season, this might increase. Read this blog to know why drinking more water during summer is important.

When you consider that our bodies are roughly 70% water, it makes sense that we need to replace a fair amount each day. Through activities of daily living, the average person loses about 3–4 liters of fluid a day in sweat, urine, exhaled air, and bowel movement. What is lost must be replaced by the fluid we drink and the food we eat.
