Sugar and honey were used to treat battlefield wounds in ancient Egypt 4000 years ago. It has been used since, and science shows that treating wounds with honey or sugar (sucrose) is beneficial.

The best way to treat high blood sugar is to take doctor prescribed doses of insulin and/or medication daily. Diet and exercise should also be incorporated to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Garlic, bitter melon, cinnamon, alfalfa, and burdock have also been documented to help with high blood sugar.
