Eating sugar gives your body a quick boost of energy. But after thatbrief surge, you'll start to feel drowsy; especially if you've just eaten a hugepiece of chocolate cake. When you eat a lot of sugar, your blood glucose (amount of sugar in the blood)rises almost instantly. To restore balance, the pancreas releases large amountsof insulin, signalling your cells to use the sugar as fuel. The result isreactive hypoglycemia … and fatigue.

ya, jika kita makan benda bergula dgn banyak, dan kebetulan sugar tu naik dalam darah kita dan slow untuk turun, maka kita akan alami beberapa symptoms, dan seperti dalam article diatas, iamya memang terjadi.

yang selalu dialamai jika sugar tinggi ialah rasa tidak sedap badan, rasa lesu dan feeling unwell in general. Jika ianya menjadi chronic, maka kita mula buang air kecil dgn byk, dan jadi dahaga lalu minum air dgn banyak pula (increased thirst, polyuria, polydipsia)
