Drink More Water For Keeping A Check On Your Blood Sugar Levels
Aug 28, 2018
Imagine that you have a glass full of water and you add a teaspoonful of sugar to it and mix until it dissolves. Now you put the glass of water out in the sun. What will happen?
The water will start evaporating and the water that remains in the glass will become sweeter and sweeter. Now apply the same concept for your blood sugar levels. Since our blood is more than 80% water, as the volume of blood in the body decreases the sugar quotient increases.
So, one thing is clear, staying hydrated will ensure that your body's water level doesn't dip nor does the volume of blood. Which in turn will help if you have a high blood sugar level or are generally concerned about consuming too much sugar.
How Much Water Should You Be Drinking?
A normal, healthy human body loses about 10 cups of water every day through sweat and urination. At the same time, water is gained by the body through drinking fluids and watery food items. A general rule dictates drinking 6-8 glasses of water every day.
The easiest way to know if you are hydrated or not is to look at the urine discharge. If it is a little yellow then you are most probably hydrated and if it is darker in colour then you need to up your water intake.
Another way to regulate your body's hydration level is to develop a water drinking habit. Smartphone water drinking reminder apps can help you develop a water appetite. Carry a personal water bottle with clean drinking water from your home RO purifier or office water purifier to ensure that you can have a sip when the reminders buzz you.
We hope this information helps you in regulating your body's blood sugar levels. If you are interested in knowing more about the benefits of water then follow our blog. To know more about home water purifiers in India, visit us at www.livpure.in
