AN IMBALANCE OF BLOOD SUGAR ALSO DAMAGES THE BRAIN

“Therefore, it is necessary to pay close attention to this balance,” Turkish Neurologist Prof. Dr. said, noting that the decrease and increase in blood sugar causes damage to the cardiovascular-nervous system and kidneys, as well as the brain.

Blood sugar is sometimes extremely high, sometimes it drops to levels below the need. Both conditions can damage brain tissue, causing memory problems, said Turkey Medicals member and hospital clinic Neurologist Professor Doctor, “Glucose is the brain’s fuel source and keeps blood sugar levels healthy, which balances brain chemistry. If you can’t balance your blood sugar levels, you also endanger the fuel that goes to the brain” he said, giving the following information about it.

.
WHAT PROBLEMS ARE EXPERIENCED?

Blood sugar balance is very important for the brain. If the balance of blood sugar is disturbed, your brain cannot get enough energy and begins to degenerate. As a result, it becomes unable to perform its function. In addition, balanced blood sugar levels are also required for the synthesis of neurotransmitters in the brain (small chemical conductors that ensure the flow of information in nerve cells). When large fluctuations and imbalances in blood sugar come together, it Decays the structure of neurotransmitters and stops their production. This, in turn, disrupts brain function.

.
IF YOUR BLOOD SUGAR IS LOW

A decrease in blood sugar (hypoglycemia) occurs as a result of less than normal secretion of the hormone insulin secreted by the pancreas. Therefore, symptoms such as weakness, blurred vision, November and headaches are observed. There are often bouts of hunger, bouts of sweets. In order to immediately turn off the energy needs needed by the brain, the orientation to foods with lots of sugar increases.

.
IF YOU HAVE HIGH BLOOD SUGAR

An increase in blood sugar (hyperglycemia) is also an increased secretion of the hormone insulin secreted by the pancreas than usual. The disease, which is accompanied by hyperglycemia, is called diabetes mellitus (diabetes). High blood glucose in people with more thirst, hunger, go to the toilet more often at night, burning sensation in your feet, lack of sexual function, fatigue and drowsiness, symptoms such as wound healing.

.
IF YOU HAVE INSULIN RESISTANCE

Insulin resistance can be defined as the difficulty in exerting the action of insulin secreted to control sugar in the body. In normal conditions, the body can control sugar with 1 unit of insulin, while in patients with insulin resistance, the body has to secrete 2-3 units of insulin. As insulin resistance increases, insulin is also increased to control sugar. This means that too much insulin is secreted in the body. With insulin resistance, the aging process in the brain is accelerated considerably. Depending on this, neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s or dementia also occur. In fact, the harmful effects of sugar and insulin on the brain have doubled Alzheimer’s disease and led to the so-called “Type 3 diabetes”. After meals, insulin resistance, fatigue, general fatigue, constant hunger, living in fresh crisis-not to be satisfied after eating, persistent request for a sweet after meals, waist circumference equal to or larger than the width of the hips, the exit to urinate frequently, increased appetite, sensation of thirst, constantly shifting pains in the body and causes symptoms such as being forced to lose weight.

.
HERE IS THE ROADMAP

The two most effective ways to maintain blood sugar balance are eating right and moving. Therefore, do not skip meals. Eat three main, three Dec meals a day. Avoid foods such as porridges, cakes, pies, rice rice, pasta during meals. Give weight to whole grain foods (such as brown bread, dried legumes, bulgur) and pulp foods such as raw vegetables and fruits. Stay away from juices. Eat milk, yogurt and walnuts next to the fruit. Give preference to milk desserts and add cinnamon to these desserts.

Do not forget to do exercises, at least regular walking every day. Do not forget to have blood sugar and insulin determinations once or twice a year.
