How To Know If The Body Has Excess Sugar Levels?
Previously, I want to ask how do we know if we are drinking too much sweet drinks, or we are lacking sweet drinks. like canned drinks, whether carbonated or not.
Thank you for the question.
Actually, food that we think is not sweet also contains sugar in it. For example, rice, corn, or potatoes. The difference in the effect of eating foods containing high sugar content and low sugar content, according to several studies, has no significant difference. However, the long-term effects that result from the end result of the breakdown of sugar. In our bodies sugar is broken down and stored in muscles, liver and fat tissue in addition to being used as energy. Usually, people who eat too much sweet food are characterized by obesity, cavities, and fatty liver (seen with ultrasound).
Diabetes mellitus has an effect on blood containing high sugar levels. Symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus: lots of urine, lots of drinking, lots of eating, but weight continues to decrease. In diabetics it is usually accompanied by weakness, lack of excitement, blurred vision, and if there is a wound, the wound will heal for a long time.
Sugar deficiency conditions usually occur in people who are taking antidiabetic drugs or injectable insulin (as a substitute for body insulin). The symptoms are fatigue, dizziness, cold sweat, palpitations, shaking legs and hands, and loss of consciousness.
It's good if you like consuming sweet foods balanced with:
Regular exercise 30 minutes to 1 hour 3 times a week Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables Drink lots of water Do not smoke Do not drink alcohol If you have been diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus, it is necessary to know that it will increase the risk of heart disease, kidney disease, and stroke.
That's my explanation, hopefully it can answer the question.
