When I eat foods that have a lot of sugar (chocolate, sweets, fudge, syrup) I get very lightheaded, woozy, get a bad headache, my pulse races and I find breathing harder (like an anxious breathing difficulty). This happens even when I eat small amounts of those foods so the simple answer is don't eat them....no matter how delicious they may be. Anyway, my initial thought was that they were messing with my blood sugar a lot which was causing the symptoms however my Dad is diabetic so we have a blood glucose testing device and I've tested my blood glucose level at resting point, after meals and after consuming sugary foods once the symptoms have kicked in and it's been around 20 minutes (the recommended time between eating and testing). My blood glucose levels are very healthy, slap bang in the middle of the ideal range so there's no issue there. This isn't a huge life destroying issue or anything but it is something I'm curious about- all the research I've done talks about blood sugar, but it's not that so any ideas as to what could cause that reaction??
Effects of sugar?
