Drinking enough water throughout the day is crucial for maintaining good health. When we become dehydrated, the amount of water in our bloodstream decreases. Consequently, the glucose in the bloodstream gets more concentrated, leading to high blood glucose levels. Dehydration also triggers the body to secrete a hormone called vasopressin, which tells the kidneys to retain water and the liver to produce more glucose.

Stay hydrated by following these tips
• Make sure you drink enough water/fluid. You can set timely reminders to meet your fluid requirements for a day.
• Consider carrying a water bottle with you wherever you go to prevent dehydration.
• Instead of waiting for the thirst signal from your body, drink water at regular intervals.

It’s also crucial to note that drinking water immediately after meals can dilute essential gastric juices and cause an insulin surge. So, to keep your glucose levels in check and improve your overall health, drinking water regularly and meeting your daily fluid requirements is best.
