Re: Sugar, salt

Salt is not a factor for diabetes, but excess salt will cause high osmotic pressure
and hence retain more water content in blood.so instead of normal 5-6lit of blood in healthy person,one will retain 8-10liters,which will put excess strain on heart muscles to pump it (which is 60-100 times/min). So early cardiomegaly and congestive cardiac failure chance will be more.

Again high volume of blood will exert more pressure on vascular structure,which in long run cause kidney failure,stroke,heart attack,eye bleeding and vision loss.

Sugar intake if exceed the natural consumption will be stored as glycogen and fats all over the body except brain and cause lots of changes... Fatty liver leading to liver failure,constrict blood vessels leading to stroke,heart attack,renal failure etc.

Excess sugar in blood will put un-necessary stress on Pancreas and develops Insulin resistance,hence diabetes.

So depending upon our output(in terms of work/exercise) we should take the food. Even protein,fats also contain calories,(will ultimately converted to sugar inside the body by liver).

So food intake on a whole should be regulated with 60% carbs,20-30% protein and 10-15% fats. still hungry? .fill with fibres/salads/fruits/water.

Are you a doctor, Anirvan ? Your post has made me worried and I am afraid to read it all again ! But one thing is true. Even if I take all the care as doctor/Anirvan advises, I am still going to die !

(P.S. --That doesn't lessen the importance of having a good health and following your advice !)

OM

unfortunately yes ,(a MD doc from aiims)healthy diet is not at all difficult to follow.just adequate salt9 with no extra addition),pure veg foods/salads/fruits without sweets and fried items will be a balanced health diet.

its true that now days in urban population, majority of death is due to cardiac/renal complication-result of bad diet and sedentary life,top of it is alcohol/smoking.

Namaste

OK, Anirvan. After your credentials are revealed, I have no option but to follow your advice ! BTW, my diet is pretty simple ... but I need to cut down on sugar intake.

If you can't control your salt intake, donate blood regularly, and more often than an average person, so as to not distress your pump?

Pranam.
