Can the desserts lead to have the diabetes?
March 15, 2013 4:12am CST
My colleague who is a normal person and she is also not a diabetic. We just have the body check every year. And last year her report shows that she has no diabetes. However, she had the blood test today and she was told that her blood sugar level is a little bit higher than normal. She doubts whether it has a relate for her to take the desserts lately. What do you think?

Many things contribute to diabetes. It can be age, eating carbohydrates (desserts) too much, and being sedentary, sitting too much and not being active. I understand that to prevent diabetes a person needs to eat a healthy, balanced diet and get enough exercise. Good luck to your friend.

Maybe it is because of the sweets that she ate. And maybe she lack water or shes kind of dehydrated. Sweets can be very addicting but you just have to control yourself and balance everything. I think she can lower the sugar level in her blood by also exercising regularly.

I do think that way you eat does have an affect on the body. It could also be something that runs in a family which would make someone more at risk for something like that. I know I was told that I needed to stay away from that kind of thing cause I could possibly over time end up with diabetes.

If the blood suger level is a little bit higher it doesn`t mean that she is diabetic.She has to repeat the test or to do other tests which are more precise in diagnostics of diabetes.If the diet is low in fast carbohydrates it`s better for health and lowers the risk of diabetes.

It depends on person. But usually eating too much will cause digest organs overwork which will lead to their health problems. So I think eating too many desserts may lead to diabetes, but only have them twice a week usually have no problem.

This is hard to say. I have heard that you should not have a meal high in simple carbohydrates as the last meal before a blood test, that residual sugar might remain in the blood stream. It's a complex issue. I found this online, and it relates the facts much better than I could. http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/diabetes-myths/

Desserts are usually very high in sugar ingredients and can contribute to a higher blood sugar level and high cholesterole, she really needs to switch to more healthier desserts or eat fruit instead. Desserts are ok, but in moderation. And what sort of desserts does she have? There are always substitutes if she is worried about her sugar levels.

hi youless she should get a glucometer and check her blood sugar daily . Its the total carbs in foods that can raise raise your blood sugar. It does nor necessarily have to be in desserts but in any food that has a lot of carbohydrates in them and the more complex the better.Simple carbs are the ones that really raise your blood sugar too high. she must keep her weight down and consume desserts in very modest portions.
