Lower carb intake

Doctors explained that carbohydrates with a high glycemic index (GI) rating rapidly turn to glucose in the bloodstream, raising chances for diabetes. In one study, researchers tried to lower the GI of white bread using white kidney-bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) extract. Doctors measured blood sugar in 13 participants who ate white bread with or without kidney bean extract and found that GI decreased by 34 percent in those who took 3,000 mg of kidney bean extract powder. Another study found that blood sugar increased less, and returned to starting levels faster in those who took 1,500 mg of kidney bean extract with a small, high-GI meal compared to those who did not take kidney bean extract.
