Default Fast reduction

In a diabetes class I took a few years ago, a Dr. Sat in, and he asked the question, "do you know how to lower your blood levels quickly?". I told him I did not know. He suggested drinking a bottle or good amount of water.

thats funny because I thought of that today.
I had a bad eating day and I was drinking down water and thinking in my head that this is going to clear me out.
Hope it does help and if nothing else it cant hurt.,

When someone ask for help on the forum please do not judge them. Just try and explain your suggestion. I know I hate it when I ask for help then get a lecture . I know you think you are helping but try and do it in a non judgement way.

I also go for a walk, if I am able to, and I increase the amount of fluid I drink until I come down. I don't know that it does anything scientific, but it gives me peace of mind that I don't get dehydrated & tends to make me feel better. How long's it taking to come down when you go high?
As a type 1, diagnosed 25 years ago and no problems yet, I don't hesitate to take a stat insulin dose (Novorapid) when things go badly wrong. If you lack the experience and confidence hard physical exercise is the only answer - if practical.

Is there anything I can do to bring it down fast?! I usually just wait it out till it comes down on its own. It use to come down fairly quickly but now days it is taking longer and longer to come down, any reason for this???
thanks for all your help.
Hi, if I see my blood sugars are too high, I usually have a 1 minute flax seed muffin, it helps to bring down sugars pretty fast, or if you can eat eggs have some scrambled eggs or I have egg whites with herbs and some favorite cheese, this usually happens in the mornings, so for my breakfasts,I have flax seed muffin or egg whites, also drinking a couple glasses of water are good too, exercise is good, if you have an exercise bike, it works fast to lower blood sugars, and it is easy to do; hope this helps you.
I agree with Garye, I come here for help, not lectures on what I am doing wrong, we all have our cravings, just because we are diabetic does not mean we shouldn't eat things we love, I find that if I have a craving I eat what I wanted to have because what usually happens is you try to eat what you should, but eventually give in and have the thing you craved, so if you fulfill your craving(not go overboard on it though) you are done and happier for it. I do believe in eating healthy, but when it comes to things I like; for example, I buy bags of small chocolate bars, I buy hovis bread, which is small, I buy Lucerne Maple walnut ice cream( a Safeway product) as it has 10 sugars for 1/2 cup, waffle cones are low in sugar and carbs, I don't eat tons of stuff with cholesterol in it, I eat lots of veggies, salads, fish, chicken, cottage cheese with either fruit or veggies, bacon I have once in a while, egg whites are my eggs, I don't eat a lot of baked goods anymore, but I do have hovis bread toast with my egg whites, very good.

If it works for you, go ahead. That method would be dangerous potentially for a newcomer.
