Ask the Nurse

What makes your body more efficient at metabolizing sugar?

Exercise is the best way to make your body more efficient in metabolizing sugars. Eat foods with more complex sugars rather than simple sugars like glucose or fructose. Reduce your carbohydrate intake and increase your protein intake a little, however, remember to have a well balanced diet.

Some underlying disease like Diabetes or certain enzyme deficiencies can make your body less efficient in metabolizing sugars, so please check with your physician to ensure that you don’t have any underlying medical conditions.
