Thus, if you want to reduce the high blood sugar, the following foods are the way to do so. They are actually based on a food list which is based on the glycemic index.

Its scale ranges from 0-100. Thus, the higher the food gets on the list, the bigger the chances are that it will raise the sugar levels, and vice versa. The lower it is, the healthier and safer it is.
