, cucumbers might help lower your blood sugar. 
Foods that contain large amounts of carbohydrates can cause unwanted spikes in blood sugar. In contrast, foods that are higher in fiber and low in sugars and starches can help to lower your blood sugar. As a nonstarchy vegetable that's high in water and a source of fiber, cucumbers might play a role in lowering your blood sugar.
Carbohydrates and Blood Sugar
A 1-cup serving of cucumber provides only 0.9 gram of starch and 1.7 grams of sugar. According to the American Diabetes Association, nonstarchy vegetables like cucumbers have little potential to cause a boost in your blood sugar. In addition, a 1-cup serving of cucumbers provides 0.5 gram of dietary fiber and only 16 calories. As the University of Illinois Extension suggests that eating 20 grams of fiber for every 1,000 calories can help to lower your blood sugar, eating cucumbers can help increase your fiber intake without significantly boosting your caloric intake.
Water Content
When your blood glucose levels are too high, water plays an important role in flushing excess sugar from your body. As over 95 percent of a cucumber's weight is water, cucumbers can help lower your blood sugar levels by helping increase your water intake.
