How can I lower my blood sugar If I run out of medication?

Walking can definitely help reduce blood sugar. I just tested it as recommended by previous posters. Before and after readings are 8.8mmol/L down to 6.9mmol/L after 30 mins walk.
Eating yougart can also do wonder in lowering blood sugar.

I think lots more info is needed before anyone can give opinions about what to do. A really important question here is, how high is your blood sugar and have you already done everything naturally that can be done to lower it? Do you have any other severe health problems. If you have really high blood sugar, just discontinuing meds to try to lower it naturally can have drastic consequences. I sure wouldn't want to be responsible for someone who's had a stroke or lost vision due to not taking meds because they had dangerously high blood sugar levels.
Cinnamon helps to keep blood sugar stable. I heard or read somewhere that it works as well as glucophage. I hope that this helps!

Fenugreek works really well, so does turmeric & there are others. I use these regularly. Go to google & put in herbs that lower blood glucose & you will find lots of them. Hope this helps. I have type 2 diabetes & refuse to take the drugs that do this. They cause too many other things to happen, soIi stay away.

Exercise is the best way to naturally lower blood sugar. I walk at least a mile every day, good luck.
Here are questions related to Lowering Blood Sugar Without Medication.
I'm concerned about my mom. We right now don't have any type of insurance nor medical, and she has run out of her pills. It's going to take about a week for her to get her meds. What can we do to try and keep her sugar down the best way? Right now she is okay, it's 189, but I'm still worried it can always go up. Please any suggestions? Thank you.

Help her stick strictly and I mean really strictly to her diet. You could also try 1-2 tsp cinnamon daily to regulate her blood sugars. If she is stressed by having to wait for meds, this will affect her blood sugars too. Remember, help her exercise as much as she can. If money is a problem to help her with meds, try contacting the company(ies) that makes her meds and see if they will help with cost, some do.
