According to WebMD, consuming an excessive amount of sugar can result in a variety of health problems, including obesity, heart disease, and fatty liver disease. It's recommended that no more than 10% of a person's daily caloric intake should be from sugar. Here are some symptoms that may occur due to consuming too much sugar:
1. Joint pain
Consuming too much processed sugar may cause the body to release cytokines, which can lead to chronic joint inflammation and pain. If you experience joint pain, it's wise to check your blood sugar levels.
2. High blood pressure
Eating sugar increases insulin levels, which stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, causing an increase in blood pressure and heart rate. It may also impair blood pressure regulation, leading to consistently high blood pressure.
3. Poor sleep patterns
Sugar can lead to dental decay, weight gain, and an increased risk of diabetes. However, one of its most significant adverse effects is its interference with sleep, which can cause you to crave more sugar. Consuming too much sugar can make it difficult to fall asleep.
4. Digestive issues
A diet high in sugar may irritate the lining of your stomach, leading to cramping and diarrhea. Sugar may also affect the absorption of water in the large intestine, leading to bloating or a feeling of fullness.
It's a fact that many people around the world are addicted to sugar. Overcoming sugar addiction can be just as challenging as overcoming drug addiction. To reduce sugar consumption, it's important to acknowledge the addiction and seek medical attention, talk to someone, exercise, and maintain regular meal times.
