11 Natural Ways to Prevent Diabetes

2. Helpful Appetizers


A small change in diet can help keep blood sugar levels from getting too high. A study out of Arizona State University found that people who have type 2 diabetes had lower blood sugar levels if they simply had two tablespoons of vinegar before they had a meal that was high in carbohydrates. It’s the acetic acid in vinegar that may slow down the digestion of carbs, and keep blood sugar levels down. You don’t have to take vinegar straight from the bottle to enjoy the benefits since it is an ingredient that is easily worked into a salad dressing to use before the main course.
