Hi I Am 39 Years Old And I Am Diabetic For 23years .The Problem Is My Blood Sugar Always High

What are you considering 'high?' Are you on insulin? If so you may need to increase dosage. If not you may need to see your doctor or endocrinologist. Are you getting enough foods that contain magnesium and chromium? Research what they do and what foods contain them. There are also many medicinal herbs and spices that can do you good. The main problem with that is we are not all alike so you will have to figure out what works best for you. I was diagnosed as a Type 2 in 2005 and it took until May 2022 to figure out turmeric works good for me. I probably should have noticed it sooner but I didn't since I'd taken the gel caps in the past.

I had a craving for Turmeric Rice in May and finally made a pot. I ate three(3) bowls that night and was expecting my fasting glucose to be around 130mg/dL or higher but it wasn't. It was 80mg/dL. I researched it more and just started cooking with it just about every meal. When I had blood work done in June everything came back as "normal" and that was the first time I wasn't chastised by my doctor about anything. My weight and blood pressure had also dropped since the last time I had seen him.
