1. Introduction


Reverse Age City is a health blog with the theme "All events come from balance! " is a health blog with health as its theme. This time it is sugar (saccharine).

Together, we will walk the path of health and harmony.


2. 砂糖の魅力と危険性


While sugar's allure includes its palatability and ability to make us feel happy, the effects of excessive sugar intake on the body are serious.

First of all, it is high in calories. Although sugar is a source of energy, high intake can lead to obesity, and obesity can cause a variety of health risks. In addition, it causes rapid rises and falls in blood sugar levels, which can lead to fatigue and anxiety. In the long run, this increases the risk of diabetes.

It can also negatively affect dental health. When sugary foods are consumed, oral bacteria metabolize them and produce acid. This acid erodes tooth enamel, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Additionally, sugar can cause inflammation. Chronic inflammation can lead to a variety of diseases, increasing the risk of developing heart disease and arthritis.

Given these negative effects on the body, it is important to properly manage sugar intake and maintain a balanced diet. In the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle, it is essential to understand the attractions and dangers of sugar and to ensure that it is consumed in moderation.

3. wild fluctuations in blood glucose levels and health risks


The rapid rise and fall in blood glucose levels resulting from sugar intake is a factor that poses a serious risk to health. When dietary sugar is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, a rapid rise in blood glucose occurs. When this occurs, the pancreas rapidly secretes large amounts of insulin in an attempt to lower blood glucose levels.

Role of the pancreas: The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes and insulin and is responsible for food breakdown and blood sugar regulation. It regulates digestion and energy utilization.

However, this causes a sudden drop in blood glucose levels, resulting in hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is stressful for the body and can cause headaches, irritability, and difficulty concentrating. If this is repeated, it can also lead to chronic abnormalities in glucose metabolism.

In addition, long-term cycles of high and low blood glucose can reduce the effectiveness of insulin and ultimately increase the risk of developing diabetes.

Diabetes can lead to a variety of complications, including heart disease, kidney disease, and visual impairment, with serious health consequences.

This unstable state of blood glucose levels can also affect metabolic functions throughout the body and exacerbate inflammation. Therefore, a balanced diet and proper sugar control are important to reduce health risks from wildly fluctuating blood glucose levels.


4. 脂肪蓄積とメタボリックシンドローム


Excessive sugar intake contributes to fat accumulation and increases the risk of metabolic syndrome. Sugar stimulates fat production in the liver, which in excess leads to fat accumulation. In addition, high blood sugar levels stimulate the proliferation of fat cells, leading to abnormal accumulation of fat in the body.

This increased fat accumulation increases the risk of metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome is a condition in which high blood pressure, high blood sugar, increased triglycerides, and abdominal obesity occur simultaneously,

increases the risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. The fat-promoting effects of sugar are thought to accelerate this vicious cycle, deepening its negative impact on health. Careful management of sugar intake is therefore essential to control fat accumulation and prevent metabolic syndrome.


5. effects of inflammation and immune function


Excessive sugar intake can lead to chronic inflammation, which can severely impact immune function. Sugar stimulates the release of inflammatory cytokines, which contribute to the development of chronic inflammation.

Chronic inflammation can lead to diseases such as arthritis and atherosclerosis and can interfere with the normal functioning of the immune system.

In addition, it has been noted that sugar intake directly affects immune function. High blood sugar levels may reduce immune cell function and weaken resistance to infections. When the immune system is compromised, the body is less able to adequately defend itself against pathogens, making it more susceptible to various diseases.

These effects can be especially apparent with a high-carbohydrate diet over a long period of time. A compromised immune system is a serious threat to health and increases the risk of infectious and inflammatory diseases.

Therefore, a balanced diet and proper management of sugar intake are key to maintaining immune function and controlling inflammation.


6. relevance to adult diseases


A profound link between sugar intake and the development of adult diseases has been demonstrated. Again, a warning to you sugar lovers. 

Excessive sugar intake is a factor that increases the risk of adult diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension.

In particular, a high-sugar diet leads to obesity, which contributes to an increased risk of developing heart disease.


Diabetes incidence (per population)





















*References are from databases of various countries. It is said that one in ten people has diabetes and twice as many people have prediabetes. The total number of diabetic patients is 20 million, which means that about 1 in 6 Japanese has diabetes or pre-diabetes.

The ratios in other countries are similar.

Sugar causes insulin resistance, which leads to the development of diabetes. Insulin resistance makes blood glucose levels more difficult to manage and increases the likelihood of developing diabetes in the long term.

Hypertension has also been linked to excessive sugar intake. Sugar hardens blood vessels and increases blood pressure, thereby increasing the risk of developing hypertension.

This close association of sugar with adult diseases underscores its negative impact on health. In terms of prevention, a balanced diet, control of sugar intake, and appropriate exercise are important. Lifestyle modification and proper management of sugar are essential elements in preventing these adult diseases and establishing a healthy future.


7. path to healthy living Inclusion

  • Understanding the health risks posed by excessive sugar intake is important for a healthy future. Sugar can contribute to the development of a variety of adult diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and impaired immune function. Therefore, it is essential to limit sugar intake and focus on a balanced diet as the first step toward a healthy lifestyle.

  • Physical activity stimulates metabolism and improves cardiac and immune function.

  • These efforts add up and are a step toward a healthy and fulfilling future.

  • It is important to take responsibility for one's body and to build a healthy lifestyle through ongoing efforts.

Dietary measures:

The following are examples of foods and specific ingredients that should be given special attention in the diet for diabetes control:


Examples: spinach, kale, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, etc. These vegetables are rich in fiber, which helps control blood sugar elevation.


Examples: apples, strawberries, blueberries, etc. It is important to choose fruits with low GI and high fiber content.

Whole grains:

Examples: oats, whole wheat, brown rice, etc. These help reduce blood sugar spikes and are rich in nutrients.

Protein Sources:

Fish (salmon, tuna), chicken (skinless), soy products (tofu, natto), egg whites, etc. They are low in fat and provide high quality protein.

Healthy fats:

Examples: avocados, olive oil, nuts (almonds, walnuts). Avoid saturated fats and consume unsaturated fats.

Low-fat dairy products:

Low-fat yogurt, low-fat cheese, etc. Keep low-fat choices in mind while watching calcium intake.

Fibrous foods:

e.g., beans, whole grains, vegetables. These foods help manage blood sugar levels.

Foods low in sugar and additives:

Limit foods high in sugar and additives and choose foods in their most natural form possible.

Because diets vary from person to person, it is important for diabetics to consult with a physician or dietician to build a meal plan that works for them.
