Risks With High Sugar Levels

Whatever we eat will be converted into sugar and released into our bloodstream. The amount of insulin that will be released into the bloodstream from the pancreas is proportional to the sugar levels present in the bloodstream. The human body will become insulin resistant if the blood contains high sugar levels and eating unhealthy diet associated with the low physical activity. Insulin resistance makes sugar levels in the body at high levels permanently. Blood vessels become stiff and non-flexible with the sugars sticking to proteins in the walls of the blood vessels. This condition leads to scar tissues inside the blood vessels and increases the risk of a number of diseases such as heart disease, stroke, dementia, cancer, impotence and blindness. Skin becomes saggy and wrinkled as sugar in the bloodstream attacks collagen and elastin molecules of the skin. In women, insulin resistance may lead to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Polycystic ovary syndrome causes irregular periods, excessive hair, infertility and weight gain. About 10 to 15 percent weight loss is sufficient to reduce risks associated with high blood sugar levels. Avoid following foods to reduce blood sugar levels


  • Avoid foods with refined carbohydrates as they spike blood sugar levels instantly. Biscuits, cakes, pastry and white bread contains refined carbohydrates
  • Avoid natural sugars as they spike blood sugar levels. Examples for natural sugars are honey, stevia (extracted from leaves of the stevia plant), dates, coconut sugar, maple syrup and agave syrup (derived from the plant)
  • Avoid processed foods as they contain sugar
  • Avoid rice, pasta and potatoes as they contain basic carbohydrates

Studies indicate that BMI value measuring above 25 is considered unhealthy. Recent studies show consuming two teaspoons of vinegar along with diet reduces post-meal blood sugar levels by 20 percent. Another study shows an individual who consumes one tablespoon of vinegar per day can reduce weight by 1.2 kgs in 12 weeks.

  • Pioglitazone (Actos)

Cerebrovascular : Brain damage caused due to the interruption of blood supply is called cerebrovascular disease. Also known as stroke and CVA. High cholesterol levels in the brain make cholesterol into thick plaque and obstruct the flow of blood to the brain.

C-reactive protein : Liver produces the C-reactive protein (CRP) and this substance rises in response to body inflammation. This can be diagnosed with the blood test. Below 3.0 mg/dL is considered as normal. Blood tests to identify CRP levels are

  • Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) test
  • Plasma viscosity (PV) test
  • C-reactive protein (CRP) test

CRP : See C-reactive protein
