Alarming: Too Much Sugar in Your Body Can Cause These Terrible Consequences

 

Sugar – we all love it, right? You add sugar to your morning cup of coffee or tea; you bake it into pastries, cakes, and cookies. And you even sprinkle it all over your breakfast cereal or your oatmeal for added “flavor”.

Sugar is also hidden in some beloved “treats” that people consume on a daily basis, such as sodas, fruit juices, candies and ice cream. Did you know that today, an average American consumes about 32 teaspoons of sugar per day?

Here are some of the effects that consuming too much sugar has on your health:

- Too much sugar overloads and damages your liver. The effects of too much sugar or fructose can be likened to the effects of alcohol. All the fructose you eat gets shuttled to the only organ that has the transporter for it: your liver.

- Too much sugar tricks your body into gaining weight and affects your insulin and leptin signaling. Here’s what you need to know – the experts say that fructose fools your metabolism by turning off your body’s appetite-control system. This causes you to eat more and develop insulin resistance.

- Too much sugar causes metabolic dysfunction. Eating too much sugar causes a barrage of symptoms known as classic metabolic syndrome. These include weight gain, abdominal obesity, decreased HDL and increased LDL, elevated blood sugar, elevated triglycerides and high blood pressure.

- Too much sugar increases your uric acid levels as well! High uric acid levels are a risk factor for heart and kidney disease. In fact, the connection between fructose, metabolic syndrome, and your uric acid is now so clear that your uric acid level can now be used as a marker for fructose toxicity.
