High blood sugar can destroy your organs. What you can do about it?
Glucotoxicity (toxicity of glucose, which is sugar) causes a massive oxidation effect, which is like rusting inside your body. It can happen in your arteries, brain, or nerves.
Your body starts to heal it with proteins, calcium, and cholesterol that form plaques. That is the body’s equivalent of a bandaid. (By the way, diabetics that consume antioxidants from real food can lower the effects of glucotoxicity.)
Then you have glycation, caused when glucose and protein are combined then heated, such as with barbequed ribs that you then eat. This can cause some proteins in your body to become unusable and cause damage anywhere within your body.
These are the four main organs at risk from high blood sugar:
The first thing that will happen is you are going to lose your appetite for sugar when you completely stop taking sugar for two weeks. Why? Because every time there is sugar consumption, a hormone activates and pushes your blood sugar down, causing a low blood sugar situation (hypoglycemia to some degree). This causes you to crave sugar, but by getting rid of sugar from your diet, you get rid of the sugar cravings, too.
Hypoglycemia Definition: A condition caused by very low levels of blood glucose or sugar, which is common in diabetic people.
