The best way to avoid the sugar rush is to stop eating sweets and get your sugar fix at home.
And the new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that it may be the only way.
The researchers found that people who took a sugar-free diet for at least 12 months had significantly lower blood sugar and triglycerides, a marker of blood sugar control.
This was even more pronounced for people with diabetes.
And their results suggest that those with the highest blood sugar also had the highest triglycerides.
“This is a great study that shows the importance of reducing your intake of sugars and increasing your consumption of fruits and vegetables,” said Dr. John DiGiulio, a diabetes researcher at the University of California, San Francisco.
According to the study, which was published in Diabetes Care, the study participants were split into three groups: those who took the sugar-lowering diet for 12 months and then followed it for two years; those who were on a sugar sweetened diet for one year and then switched to a sugar free diet for the second year; and those who ate both a sugar and a sugar diet.
The researchers found the difference in blood sugar levels was almost 20 percent, with the sugar sweetener group seeing a significant decrease in triglycerides (which is a marker for blood sugar), compared with the control group.
DiGiulios group was much more likely to report weight loss, which may help explain why the sugar group also experienced lower triglycerides than the control participants.
“There is no evidence that sugar consumption reduces triglycerides,” DiGiuilio said.
“The only way to lower triglyceride levels is to reduce sugar intake.”
DiGiilio noted that although sugar is a high glycemic load, this doesn’t mean it causes blood sugar to rise.
“A high glycaemic index does not mean you are going to cause a spike in blood glucose,” he said.
“If your blood sugar is normal, it’s fine.
You’re just not going to be in a rush to get high blood sugar.
The problem is, if you have a lot of sugar in your blood, it can cause a lot more sugar spikes in your bloodstream.”
DiGulio added that it is not uncommon for people to get diabetes when their blood sugar falls too low.
The study authors also noted that sugar intake can affect blood sugar, but not the amount of sugar.
For example, diabetics can have blood sugar drops of 30 or 40 milligrams per deciliter, which is just one-third of the daily average.
DiGiilios group had a blood sugar of 126 milligram per decile, or 1.5 teaspoons per day, but DiGiuelos blood sugar was still normal, so they didn’t have to worry about having a spike.
“In our case, there was no increase in blood sugars,” DiGulios said.
In other words, people who were eating sugar-sweetened sodas did not experience a spike of blood sugars.
However, diabetic subjects in DiGiiolio’s group experienced a spike that would be expected with a high blood sugars level.
DiGiulio said that there are several other ways to reduce your blood sugars, such as consuming a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and taking diabetes drugs, such the drug beta blockers.

Here are the top six reasons why you shouldn’t eat sugar:1.
You can still have a sugar high by eating fruits, berries, and vegetables2.
You might be better off getting your blood pressure checked at home rather than at the doctor3.
Eating sugar is healthy if you follow your diet4.
If you’re trying to lose weight, you might be surprised how fast the body can change from the sugar high to the normal state of health5.
If your blood glucose level is low, the blood sugar spikes that occur when you’re eating sugar can be avoided6.
Sugar sweeteners are safe and effective for diabetes prevention, but there’s still room for improvement
