Excess sugar can affect memory, study says
– how to remain healthy, health related news, latest symptoms and treatments.

Excess sugar can affect the brain, and consequently affect memory, causing possible dementia. It was a time when sugar only affected bodily diseases, such as obesity and diabetes. Sweets, soda, the famous carbohydrates and all those foods rich in sugar that bring pleasure when eating can have a direct link with memory health, when consumed in excess.

Studies show that foods with calories up to 10% per day, or the amount of daily sugar recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization), affect nervous system cells and increase the risk of memory problems and cognitive decline, in the long term. .

According to the study's researcher, obesity is an independent risk factor for dementia, but the causal mechanism underlying this connection is unknown.

Insulin resistance

In the study carried out by the same group of researchers previously, insulin resistance had already been observed in tissues peripheral to the brain after d7a. week of a diet with 30% more sugar, and in the new study the effect was observed after three weeks. This then causes the body to increase insulin production with excess sugar. Causing the hormone produced in the pancreas that removes glucose from the blood and transports it to cells, where it is converted into energy. However, with stimulation beyond what is necessary, coming from a diet rich in sugar, cells create resistance to the action of insulin. Furthermore, it can overload the pancreas which leads to type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes care also means taking care of your memory

Diabetes is also known to pose an increased risk of developing dementia, and subsequent studies observed a cascade of effects, such as inflammation that started in the intestine, passed through the liver and then reached the brain. In another study, patients followed for 20 years, about 10% of whom developed dementia, and high blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol were observed, eventually damaging blood vessels. It can then cause heart attack and stroke, which directly affects the brain.
