Diabetes: 5 easy health tips to reduce blood sugar levels to nondiabetic level

Diabetes is one of the most prevalent chronic health diseases in India and what makes it worse is the list of complications that it causes like eye problems, kidney disease, nerve damage, heart disease, etc. With around 400 million people affected by this disease worldwide, managing and spreading awareness about it is very crucial.
