Diabetes is a chronic health disorder characterized by high blood sugar due to lack of insulin or insulin resistance. Treatment requires medical intervention and prescription drug use to prevent serious illness and even death.

However, non-diabetic high blood sugar, also known as hyperglycemia, is not necessarily tied to insulin levels and is usually caused by poor diet, lack of exercise, stress and health problems like high blood pressure or cholesterol. The good news is it can often be reversed and treated naturally, without harsh medications. The bad news is, if left untreated, it can evolve into diabetes and become a lifelong struggle.

 What are the symptoms of high blood sugar?

If you constantly suffer from fatigue, extreme thirst, nausea, trouble concentrating, vomiting, weight gain, increased urination, shortness of breath, stomach pains and/or dry mouth, you may have high blood sugar/hyperglycemia.

The scarier issue is what is happening to your body on the inside. High blood sugar slowly causes damage to your nerves, blood vessels, organs and cause dementia. Often times this damage is irreversible, unfortunately.

What can I do to get my high blood sugar under control?


Any exercise is good exercise as it will increase your metabolism which will help your body process the sugar in your blood stream faster. A pro tip is to be strategic about when you exercise. Blood sugar levels rise after each meal, and the bigger the meal, the higher the blood sugar content. As such, it is a great idea to plan your workout for 30 minutes after your biggest meal. Anything from a fast paced walk to a weight lifting session in your garage will help your body process excess sugar faster, while also helping you get in shape, and de-stress, two things which can contribute to high blood sugar when not addressed.

You need to cut back on carbohydrate dense foods like cereal, bread, pasta, wheat based foods, and even fruit as carbs are the number one dietary contributor to high blood sugar. You can get all the carbs you need from eating your daily value of veggies. You should also eat lean meats, nuts, eggs, and fish as your main source of protein. A diet full of lean protein will help you stay full longer and reduce the urge to snack during the day. Studies show that when having a craving, most people reach for high carbohydrate snacks with little nutritional value. Eating wholesome, non-processed meals can help reduce these urges.

Daily Supplements

A newly discovered natural supplement, Dichrostachys glomerata (nicknamed “DG” for obvious reasons!) is offering fantastic hope to all suffers of high blood sugar. Recent clinical studies have revealed that a daily supplementation of 400mg of DG can do the following:

  • Lower cholesterol
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Cause lower fasting blood sugar levels
  • Increase insulin sensitivity
  • Lower triglycerides
  • Increase weight loss


As is always true with the supplement industry, do your research to be sure the brand you are buying offers a quality product and not a diluted, or unproven dosage! While there are many brands offering Dichrostachys glomerata (DG) supplements, keep in mind that the DygloFit form of DG is the only one that has been officially used in clinical studies and proven to work. As of now, the only brand to offer a supplement containing only DygloFit, and in the proper, studied dosage, is Naturae Vita’s Blood Sugar Slim.DygloFit

By adopting a more active lifestyle, kicking carbs and junk food to the curb and adding DG to your daily vitamin routine, you can say goodbye to high blood sugar naturally, before it becomes a permanent thorn in your side.
