When there is hyperglycemia, it means there is too much sugar in the blood: the body cannot produce enough insulin, so the sugars in the bloodstream rise.

Associated with diabetes, hyperglycemia can cause vomiting, excessive hunger and thirst, tachycardia, vision problems, and other symptoms. Untreated hyperglycemia can lead to serious health problems.

Blood sugar: if you drink this water you lower it (a study says so)

Hyperglycemia occurs if blood sugar exceeds 125 milligrams per deciliter on an empty stomach (say in the morning before breakfast). A person with a fasting blood glucose greater than 125 mg/dL has diabetes.

A person has impaired glucose tolerance, or even pre-diabetes, when the fasting blood glucose is between 100 and 125.

A person has hyperglycemia if blood glucose is above 180 milligrams per deciliter one or two hours after eating.

Normal blood glucose levels should be between 65 and 110 mg/dl.


The human body is more than half composed of water, which as we well know is essential for life and health. For those with diabetes or hyperglycemia, water is even more important. In fact, among the symptoms of this condition may be continuous dehydration and thus persistent thirst.

Experts recommend drinking at least half the daily recommended amount as early as the morning when you wake up. This is a small “trick” by which you can give your metabolism a wake-up call and better control the disease.

The best water to drink if you suffer from hyperglycemia (or diabetes) is magnesium water, that is, with magnesium values per liter above 50 milligrams. In fact, magnesium is particularly good at counteracting the negative effects of high blood sugar.

In fact, numerous studies have shown that taking magnesium improves insulin resistance and is also effective in preventing type 2 diabetes.
