I've read that one of the suggestions for bringing down a blood sugar spike is to drink water. It helps get the sugar passed through your blood stream and out of your body. So what you are saying makes sense. I think the most successful way to manage blood sugar is by finding out what works for you as everyone is different. It's great to find things that help. I've discovered that if I workout in the evening as opposed to earlier in the day, my fbs will be lower.
I'm a new diabetic, and so I'm new to blood testing. I'm also new to drinking my body weight in water (which is what it feels like sometimes)!
One thing I've noticed, though, is if I drink 16 ounces of water (or more) right before bed, I really have to pee when I wake up - but my FBS is lower. I eat the same thing every night before bed, and I went from 110/120 to 80/90. This has been the last three nights and nothing else has changed.
What's interesting is that the days I was getting 110/120 were mornings following otherwise good days, water-wise. The timing really seems to be part of it!
