Does blood sugar increase if you sleep late?

Isidro asked:

I have tried this before and it seems to work for me. When I wake up after sleeping 8 hours, my blood sugar reads under 100. When I sleep more than 8 hours (oversleep), my blood sugar will read more than 100 (around 108 to 122). Does anyone know why this happens, or is it just me? Also, does anyone have any home remedies or tips on how to bring down blood sugar (besides the usual – limit your carbs, and sugars..etc..)

p.s. – I also have high cholesterol. I take Metformen for the Diabetes and Crestor for high cholesterol. So far the cholesterol is under control. My blood sugar readings have been around 95 to 122.

Thanks in advance.

Finding A Home Remedy For Bad Breath

Cavyl Stewart asked:

There is probably nothing more embarrassing than having bad breath. It is something that will definitely affect your social life and even life at work. Can you imagine talking to someone who is making it quite clear that your breath is offensive? Or can you imagine someone offering you a mint, obviously because your breath is more than enough to take? Getting rid of bad breath is actually quite easy and you don’t always have to go to a dentist if it can be controlled. Trying a home remedy first is always best before you spend the big bucks on something medical.

What Can I Do About Bad Breath?

Before looking for a home remedy for bad breath, determine first if it is indeed your breath that is disturbing others. Try and observe how others act around you when you are talking. They will more than likely take a step back while you are talking or try to avoid you altogether. But don’t let this get you down. The next step is to change your diet.

You probably have been eating stuff that has been leaving rich bacteria in your mouth. After all, bad breath comes from the bacteria from food in your mouth as it breaks down the proteins around it. If this doesn’t help, you may want to brush and floss your teeth more often and also gargle using a mouthwash after every meal.

This is so that you can destroy the bacteria that have gathered in your mouth, especially around your tongue. For the best results, you may even want to try washing your mouth out with baking soda that you have lying around your pantry. Baking soda actually helps to clean teeth. Just don’t try to use it all the time.

What Other Ways Can I Use To Prevent Or Control Bad Breath?

There are other home remedies for that you can use to prevent bad breath from forming or getting rid of it if you have it already. One of the methods is to chew your food properly and drink a lot of water in between meals. This will help your stomach to digest food properly and the water will also help to wash down all food particles so that they do not collect too much in the mouth. Still, you will have to brush your teeth to get rid of the bacteria that do collect.

Another home remedy for bad breath is to rinse your mouth with a glass of water and the juice of half a lemon after every meal that you have at home. The lemon can kill some of the bacteria in your mouth. It works just the way a mouthwash does and perhaps even more effectively.

Lastly, you should also make sure that you are healthy and that you have the right vitamins in your body. Try taking calcium supplements, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B-complex to prevent bad breath bacteria from forming. These are just some of the home remedies for bad breath that you can try first before you decide on going to the dentist.
