Anyone who denies having a liking towards sweets is lying. I'm sure you love them too, be it chocolates, or doughnuts, or sugary syrups. But, wait, there has to be a limit to everything. Anything beyond a limit is dangerous. And, unfortunately, this goes for sweets, too.
Start spotting these early signs from the very beginning, lest the monster of diabetes strike you.
This is the biggest sign that you have more than required sugar in your body. Although high-sugar foods can give you a sudden burst of energy, but that is temporary, after which follows a daunting crash.
If you feel the craving for sweet taste, chances are that you have become addicted to it. Recognize this soon enough to save yourself from the throes of a deep sugar addiction.
If you fall ill more frequently than you used to, this is a wake-up call. Consumption of too much of sugar gradually weakens your immune system.
If your brain gets foggy, especially after a meal, chances are that you're high on sugar. Instead of gradually dropping and rising, the blood sugar levels rise and fall rapidly, which in turn can cause cognitive issues and impairment.
Nothing tastes as sweet as it used to? "This sugar overkill causes your taste buds' sugar tolerance to go up, so you need more and more sugar to satisfy that sweet craving."
High consumption of sugar can cause inflammatory skin problems. Acne, rosacea, eczema, or even just excessive oiliness or drynesscan be the first sign your body gives out to you against rising sugar levels.
Excess sugar means excess calories, and due to the absence of protein or fiber, it doesn't satiate your hunger. And, so you eat other foods more, and build up on more calories. This can eventually lead to diabetes.
