Does Fenugreek seeds lower blood sugar levels in people with Diabetes?

Yes, fenugreek seeds have been shown to lower blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.

Fenugreek is a traditional medicinal herb that has been used for centuries to manage various health conditions, including diabetes. Several research studies have shown that fenugreek seeds can help lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

One way fenugreek may help manage diabetes is by lowering blood sugar levels. Fenugreek seeds contain compounds that can slow down the absorption of carbohydrates in the stomach and intestines, which can help prevent spikes in blood sugar levels after meals. In addition, fenugreek seeds may improve insulin sensitivity, which can help the body use insulin more effectively and lower blood sugar levels.

There are several ways to use fenugreek seeds to help manage diabetes:

  1. Soak fenugreek seeds in water overnight and drink the water the next morning. This can help lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity.

  2. Sprinkle fenugreek seeds on your food. Fenugreek seeds have a slightly bitter taste, but they can be added to a variety of dishes, such as soups, stews, and curries.

  3. Take fenugreek supplements. Fenugreek supplements are available in capsule, tablet, and powder forms.

It's important to note that fenugreek seeds should not be used as a substitute for diabetes medication prescribed by a doctor. If you're considering using fenugreek seeds as a supplement to help manage your diabetes, it's important to talk to your doctor first to make sure it's safe and appropriate for your individual needs.
