Do you have a sweet tooth? Do you constantly crave for sweet-tasting foods? Do you make sure you have a chocolate bar after breakfast, lunch and dinner? Now, how do you feel after eating sweets? Excessive tiredness and sleepiness? Perhaps both, because that's the effect of too much sugar on our system.

Too much of anything can be bad for you. That's a familiar reminder that holds true for consuming sugar. The sugar that comes from the food that we eat and formed and stored in our body is called glucose. Our cells use it as source of energy and it is carried out to our cells through the bloodstream.

The amount of glucose in our blood is called blood sugar level. Too much glucose of a high blood sugar level is definitely bad for our health. Hyperglycemia or high blood sugar levels occur when our body can't make insulin (the hormone responsible for regulating glucose metabolism in our body) or can't respond to insulin properly. We can develop these conditions, which are known as type 1 and type 2 diabetes, if we do not monitor the food that we eat, the amount of exercise that we do, and the medications that we take.

When it comes to food, excessive sugar intake can cause our insulin to go real high, and then drop drastically. That is why, we may experience sugar rush or become very perky after eating sweets, but after a while, we crash and then experience excessive tiredness. To avoid this feeling and condition, we should say no to too much sugar (even though we love that taste so much!).

Exercise or any physical activity allows us to burn sugar from the food we eat before it turns to fat. So it is important for us to exercise to maintain a healthy blood sugar level. We can also prevent high blood sugar levels and excessive tiredness if we take alternate medications. You can ask your doctor for the best alternative treatment medication for you.

So how do we know if we already have high blood sugar levels? Aside from excessive tiredness, peeing and drinking a lot and losing weight despite usual appetite are signs that our blood sugar levels are really high.

To prevent worse conditions, we should check our blood sugar levels frequently. If you continue to suffer from this condition, it's best to talk to your doctor about it.
