Having too much sugar in the blood for long periods of time can cause serious health problems if it’s not treated. Hyperglycemia can damage the vessels that supply blood to vital organs, which can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke, kidney disease, vision problems, and nerve problems.
Studies have shown that chromium supplements may be helpful for people with type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance (prediabetes). There’s good evidence that chromium can lower glucose levels and improve insulin sensitivity.

Since chromium is all around us in the air, water, and soil, there are a variety of foods that contain chromium. Here’s where to get it from in your diet.

Brewer’s yeast. The best source of chromium is brewer’s yeast, especially if it’s a yeast that was grown in soil that’s particularly rich in chromium. Even though this is one of the most popular foods with chromium, many people don’t use it because it can cause digestive problems like nausea and bloating.

Fish and shellfish. Many animal products are good sources of chromium. Mussels, shrimp, and oysters are high in chromium, and herring has a small amount.

Eggs. Eggs are good sources of chromium, especially the egg yolk.

Whole grains. A variety of whole grains contain chromium. Some good sources of these include:

Bran cereal
Wheat germ
Whole-grain bread
Meat. Meat is a good source of chromium, particularly lean or processed meats. This includes all kinds of poultry, beef, and pork. Organ meats like kidneys and liver are also high in chromium.

Some vegetables. Since chromium is present in the soil, it makes sense that plants contain chromium as well. However, some veggies are better sources of chromium than others. The best veggies to boost your chromium levels are:

Green beans
Some beverages. Drinks can contain chromium, too. Certain brands of beer and wine are good sources of this mineral. Certain brands of coffee also contain chromium. Besides alcohol and caffeine, grape juice is a kid-friendly source of chromium.

Cheese. Just like meat and seafood, cheese is another animal-derived product that’s a good source of chromium.

Dried fruit and nuts. Dried fruits like dates and prunes, along with a variety of nuts, are all good food sources of chromium. (MedicineNet) https://www.medicinenet.com/9_chromium_foods_to_keep_you_healthy/article.htm
