Can Drinking Water Lower My Blood Sugar?

By    |   Friday, 10 Jan 2014 09:53 AM

Question: Does drinking a lot of water help bring your blood sugar levels down?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Yes and no. Increasing your water fluid intake will often help lower elevated blood sugar levels, but be careful. Professional guidance on blood sugar is wise.
 
Persistent abnormally elevated blood glucose occurs when your body's hormonal regulatory system has failed either because of insulin deficiency (Type 1 diabetes) or insulin resistance (Type 2 diabetes). It can also be tied to other aspects of the body's functions or as a result of severe infections, thyroid problems, and adrenal gland disorders .
