1. Excess Sugar Contributes to Insulin Resistance
Every healthy person has the hormone called insulin in their body, which assists cells in absorbing glucose so that it can be transformed to energy. In some people, a condition happens which causes the body to produce too much insulin but it doesn’t work right to help the body absorb glucose and produce energy.
Eating too much sugar, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse (NDIC) can lead to insulin resistance, which is a precursor to other serious health issues such as excess weight. Unfortunately, there are no symptoms to indicate a person has insulin resistance.
