Diet and exercise: Eating a well balanced diet with a low glycemic index and regular aerobic exercise will help in keeping glucose in the normal range. If you have pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome or are overweight, it is imperative to loose weight.

Your body normally regulates glucose during periods of eating and fasting. Insulin goes up in response to food and keeps glu normal. Glucagon goes up during fasting so that you do not become hypoglycemic. With obesity/prediabetes, you become insulin resistant so that the insulin does not work as well.

Eat healthy/exercise: Most of the foods you consume is metabolized/changed into sugar (glucose) for body to use (similar to oil refining to gas u use for cars), but the sugar level is nicely regulated to about 60-100 in fasting state. If you are well and eating a healthy, balanced diet, along with regular exercise, your body will regulate your sugar. If you have trouble with low or high sugar, consult doc. Good luck.
