I came across this interesting question on the internet. The answer is by a registered dietician. I have not tried any acidic foods in an attempt to lower my bg. What is your opinion, and have you tried it?
I have heard that eating food that is acidic will help control my glucose level. Is this true about the acidic diet? If so, what foods do you recommend.
In the past, some research has looked at the effect of vinegars (which are acidic) as well as acidic fruit juices on blood glucose levels after a meal. These many of these studies were small, and there is not enough evidence to recommend that people with diabetes use these ingredients for the purpose of lowering blood glucose.
Instead of recommending specific foods and ingredients, the American Diabetes Association recommends following a healthy, balanced meal plan that works for you.
There is no “magic” food or drink that works to bring blood glucose down immediately in the body. To keep your blood glucose levels on target, you need to take any insulin and/or medications according to their doctor’s instructions. Medications and insulin work in your body to bring blood glucose down after eating. Following your diabetes meal plan can also help you avoid high levels.
Exercise can help to lower blood glucose. This is as close to a magic bullet as we have. For more information on exercise
