Don’t worry too much in case you have any of these symptoms because having high blood sugar doesn’t mean you have diabetes. Here is how to reduce the high blood sugar levels:


It is most certain that you have already heard about glycemic index. GI is a scale where carbohydrates are classified based on the level at which they raise the blood sugar level in the body.

The scale ranges from 0-100 and the higher you find the food on the list the more sugar you intake into your blood.

High glycemic foods are in the range above 70 and it is best to avoid it. Some of the foods that have bellow 70 on the GI scale are rice cakes, popcorn, corn flakes, white bread, glazed donuts, and baked potatoes.

Next is the moderate glycemic group which ranges between 55-69 GI. This type of foods is brown rice, oatmeal, honey, mac and cheese, pita bread, and white rice.

The best group is the one that ranges between 0-54 GI. You could consume this type of food as much as you want because it doesn’t increase the level of sugar in the blood. Some of the most popular examples of this group of food arehummus, yellow onions, eggs, broccoli, grapefruit, walnuts, cherries, cashews, butter beans, apples, kidney beans, spaghetti, tomato juice, oranges, bananas, carrots, green grapes, peas, pineapple juice, turkey sausages, etc.

Cote d’Ivoire: Destroying the Killer Rice



Authorities in Cote d’Ivoire have destroyed 18,000 tonnes of rice declared to be unfit for human consumption.

This follows tests carried out by the country’s consumer association which had demanded the government to do so after the cargo from Myanmar had been refused entry in Togo, Guinea and Ghana over quality issues.

The national and international quality control tests revealed the unfit nature of the rice.

It should be noted that most African countries depend on imports because local farmers are unable to meet the ever rising demands.

Mali: Donkeys deliver vaccines as diseases spike with violence



Reuters DAKAR –

With spiraling ethnic violence exposing more children in Mali to fatal diseases, health workers are using donkeys and boats to deliver life-saving vaccines, charities said on Wednesday.

In the central Mopti region – where 157 people died in one attack last month – suspected measles cases rose five-fold in one year to 98 in 2018, U.N. children’s agency UNICEF said, due to a four-fold jump in unvaccinated children to 70,000.

Motorcycles, which health workers used to reach remote villages, have been banned to reduce militant activity, forcing them to use traditional means like horses, it said.

“The problem of vaccination is directly linked to the current conflict,” said Patrick Irenge, medical coordinator for the charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), which is using cars and boats as mobile clinics to reach cut off communities.

“If there is a lull in the violence, a small window that opens, we organize a vaccination campaign.”

Last month’s massacre was the deadliest to date in a conflict between Dogon hunters and Fulani herders which has displaced tens of thousands of civilians in the West African country since it escalated last year.

Pneumonia is one of the top killers of children in Mali and it can be prevented with vaccines – as can measles – but it is too dangerous for many parents to venture out with children.

“Transport is difficult because we don’t have the means to rent a vehicle or a horse cart,” said Aissata Barry, a 34-year-old mother in the village of Kankelena, about 4 km (2.5 miles) from the nearest health center in the town of Sofara.

“There are rapists on the road. That’s what we’re afraid of,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by phone, adding that one of her neighbors was raped two weeks ago.

Mamadou Kasse, a local health worker who vaccinated Barry’s children, said the number of children he can reach each day has fallen since he swapped his motorbike for an eight-hour ride in a donkey cart with a cooler full of vaccines.
