How Does Hydration Affect Diabetes?

Updated: Oct 18, 2018



It’s easy to get so focused on our activities that we don’t always pay attention to what is best for our bodies. Just like oxygen, our bodies constantly need hydration.

In fact, our bodies are about 60% water!

Unlike breathing, we must think about staying hydrated. Blood sugar levels run higher in people with diabetes who aren’t adequately hydrated. Here are some simple tips to make sure our bodies get the refreshing liquids we need:

  • Always carry water with you. If you have water with you, you are more likely to drink it.


  • Drink a quick glass for rejuvenation. Any time of the day when your energy starts to fade, a glass of cold water can instantly make you more alert.


  • Mix it up! There are many varieties of sugar-free, decaffeinated, flavored powders to sprinkle in your water to spice things up. Try Crystal Light or Propel brands. A nice cup of hot or cold tea may also be a good change.


  • Hydrate before you dehydrate. If you enjoy caffeinated or alcoholic beverages, be sure to drink an equal amount of water beforehand to keep your fluid level in balance.
