Reasons Why Blood Sugar Matters

Unless you have diabetes or are at risk of developing it — you probably don’t think about your blood sugar levels too much. But new research suggests that maybe you should. People who do not have diabetes still can experience big swings in their blood sugar levels after eating, according to a study recently published in the journal PLOS Biology. Researchers involved with the study say such findings raise concerns because rapid rises in blood sugar levels are associated with increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

Here are few reason why blood sugar matters :

  • Sugar causes the body to secrete insulin and insulin is the master hormone in the body. When your insulin levels go too high it throws off all the other hormones in the body ~ Discovery, fit and health.
  • Fructose causes the four criteria of addiction : bingeing, with drawl, cravings, and sensitisation. ~ Time.
  • Having a blood sugar level that’s even on the “high end” of normal could have damaging effects on the brain ~ Huffington Post.
  • Now, you can lose wright on any diet that cuts calories. But losing is only half the battle, and often, it’s the easiest part. Sticking to a healthy eating plan that lets you keep the weight off is the hard part. ~ Reader’s Digest, on Why Blood Sugar Matters.
  • You know what it’s like : You’re high energy one minute, slumped over the next. Why? Blood sugar. ~ Oprah.com
  • Since the brain depends on an even supply of glucose it is no surprise to find that sugar has been implicated in aggressive behaviour, anxiety, and depression, and fatigue. ~ Foodforthebrain.com
  • You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to appreciate the link between sugar and depression. ~ Psychcentral.com

      Glad you found it helpful Saleem. Blood sugar, or glucose, is the main sugar found in blood. The body gets glucose from the food we eat. This sugar is an important source of energy and provides nutrients to the body’s organs, muscles and nervous system.

      Blood sugar, or glucose, is the main sugar found in your blood. It comes from the food you eat, and is your body’s main source of energy. Your blood carries glucose to all of your body’s cells to use for energy. Diabetes is a disease in which your blood sugar levels are too high.

      Glad you liked the post on Blood Sugar, Roshini. Our Indian diet is rich in simple carbohydrates which leads to sugar spikes in our body. We need to include more complex carbohydrates in our diet.
