Take in less : There are various conditions that can lead to elevated sugar levels in your blood such as diabetes but also other endocrine disorders. The same is true for sodium and potassium. Diseases affecting the adrenal glands, kidneys, and pancreas are the main culprits. In the absence of any of these conditions the answer is simply to take in less. It may sound trite but it is effective.

Diet: I'm not sure if this answers your question but to decrease the amount that goes into your body, you need to modify your diet by eating foods with less salt and less sugar. If you ask about whats already in your system, typically we have to let the body take care of itself and there isn't much we can do to eliminate sodium or sugar faster. All in all you're right in wanting less of those two things
