Soft Drink Dangers: 8 Ways Soda Negatively Affects Your Health Soda is one of the most consumed beverages in the world,second only to the water. what’s happening inside the bodies of soda consumers with each sip? As soon as soda's swallowed, the pancreas is notified and rapidly begins to create insulin in response to the sugar. Insulin is a hormone the body uses to move sugar from food or drink into the bloodstream, where cells are then able to use sugar for energy. Within just 20 minutes, blood sugar levels spike and the liver responds to the insulin by turning sugar into fat for storage. Within 45 minutes of gulping down a single 20-ounce glass of soda, caffeine from the drink is fully absorbed, and as a result your pupils dilate and blood pressure rises. The body produces more dopamine, which stimulates the pleasure centers of the brain — just like a low-grade line of cocaine. When the hour chimes, the body begins to experience a blood sugar crash, which is around the same time a person reaches for their second soda, or for another sweet and sugar snack to suffice. Soda’s connection to the obesity epidemic is so intertwined, Harvard researchers have calculated each additional soda consumed increases the risk of obesity 1.6 times. In addition to the threat of reaching obese levels, researchers also found after following 40,000 men for two decades, those who drank a sugary beverage each day had a 20 percent increased risk of having a heart attack. The high fructose corn syrup — a cheap replacement for cane sugar — has been associated with increased risk of metabolic syndrome, which leads to diabetes and heart disease,little children have an 80 percent increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes if they become regular soda drinkers. Their future will be one full of kidney problems, reproductive issues, osteoporosis, asthma, and bad teeth with dissolved tooth enamel.Dr. Rummana Ansari18 Likes17 Answers

Diet for psoriasis There's no strong scientific evidence that specific foods can impact psoriasis, but there is evidence that losing extra weight can ease symptoms. Nutritionists and physicians recommend a healthy, balanced diet to control your weight and your psoriasis, as well as lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke (which are elevated in people with psoriasis). Best Food For Psoriasis Carrots and squash "A diet that's high in fruits and vegetables can have an anti-inflammatory effect,". And although there are no studies connecting fruits and vegetables specifically with a reduction in psoriasis symptoms, psoriasis is an inflammatory condition. Specific vegetables that might have inflammation fighting properties include carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, and broccoli. Fish and seafood Omega-3 fatty acids abundant in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, and albacore tuna are the foundation of a heart healthy diet. Fish oils are thought to reduce inflammation and help the immune system, which is overactive in people with psoriasis. Given that psoriasis is also linked to a higher risk of heart attack and stroke, it's a good idea to eat fish at least twice a week. Grains Grains such as whole grain bread, cereal, and pasta; oatmeal; and brown rice are another component of an overall healthy diet. Like fruits and vegetables, grains also contain a variety of anti inflammation antioxidants and are high in fiber, which has been linked with lower inflammation levels and better regulation of blood sugar. Legumes such as beans and lentils also have antioxidants and fiber, so include them in your diet as well. Nuts and avocados Fats in general get a bad rap, but there are such things as "good fats." These include the polyunsaturated fats found in nuts, vegetable oils, and avocados, and monounsaturated fats found in soybean oil, walnuts, flaxseed, and certain fish. They're good for you in general (when taken in moderation, of course they still can pack in the calories). Stay away from saturated fats and trans fats, which may increase inflammation in the body. Blueberries Not only do blueberries have anti-inflammatory properties, but also lots of vitamin C, manganese (good for bone health), and fiber. All this while low in fat. Other fruits that may have anti-inflammatory properties include mangoes, strawberries, and figs. But you really can’t go wrong with any fruits, which are right up there with vegetables on the “good-for-you” list. Scientists are only just beginning to uncover other healthful properties of fruits. Blueberries, for instance, may also boost memory and fight heart disease.Dr. Dinesh Agarwal5 Likes17 Answers

DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES. Diabetic neuropathies are a family of nerve disorders caused by diabetes. WHAT CAUSES DIABETIC NEUROPATHY. Nerve damage is likely due to a combination of factors. 1.METABOLIC FACTORS. : hyperglycemia, long duration of diabetes, abnormal blood fat levels and low levels of insulin. 2.NEUROVASCULAR FACTORS : Neurovascular factors leading to damage of blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients to nerves. 3.AUTOIMMUNE FACTORS : Causes inflammation of nerves. 4.MECHANICAL FACTORS : Injury to nerves as in carpel tunnel syndrome. 5.INHERITED TRAITS : That increase susceptibility to nerve disease. 6.LIFESTYLE FACTORS : Smoking, alcohol. SYMPTOMS. Symptoms depends on the type of neuropathy and which nerves are affected.Symptoms involve sensory,motor and autonomic nervous system. 1.Tingling, numbness or pain in the toes,feet,legs,hands,arms and fingers. 2.Wasting of muscles of hand or feet. 3.Indigestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,c constipation. 4. Dizziness or fainting due to a drop in blood pressure after standing or sitting up. 5.Problems with urination. 6.Erectile dysfunction. 7.Weakness. TYPES OF NEUROPATHY. Diabetic neuropathy can be classified as 1.Peripheral neuropathy. 2.Autonomic neuropathy. 3.Proximal neuropathy. 4.Focal neuropathy. PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY. Peripheral neuropathy,also called distal symmetric neuropathy or sensorimotor neuropathy ,is nerve damage in arms and legs.Symptoms are *Numbness or insensitivity to pain or temperature. *A tingling,burning or prickling sensation. *Sharp pains or cramps. *Extreme Sensitivity to touch. *Loss of balance and coordination. Peripheral neuropathy also causes muscle weakness and loss of refle guyxes.Blisters and sites may appear on the numb areas of the foot because pressure or injury goes unnoticed.I f an infection occurs and is not treated promptly,the infection may spread to the bone and the foot may need amputation.Many amputations can be prevented if minor problems are treated in time. AUTONOMIC NEUROPATHY. Autonomic neuropathy affects the nerves that control the heart,blood pressure and blood glucose levels.Autonomic neuropathy also affects internal organs causing problems with digestion,respiration. urination,sexual response and vision. 1.HYPOGLYCEMIA UNAWARENESS. Normally,symptoms such as shakiness,sweating and palpitations occurs when the blood glucose levels drop below <<70 mg/dl.In people with autonomic neuropathy,symptoms may not occur making hypoglycemia to be recognized. 2.HEART & BLOOD VESSELS. Damage to the nerves in the cardiovascular system interferes with the body's ability to adjust blood pressure and heart rate. Due to this,blood pressuremay drop sharply after standing or sitting,causing a person to feel light headed or faint. Damage to nerves that control heart rate makes the heart rate to stay high , instead of rising and falling in response to normal body functions and physical activity. 3.DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. Nerve damage to the digestive system most commonly causes constipation. Damage can also cause the stomach to empty slowly,a condition called GASTROPARESIS. Gastroparesis can lead to persistent nausea and vomiting,bloating and loss of appetite. Gastroparesis also makes blood glucose levels to fluctuate widely ,due to abnormal food digestion. Nerve damage to the OESOPHAGUS MAKES SWALLOWING DIFFICULT. Nerve damage to bowels can cause constipation alternating with uncontrolled diarrhea, 3.URINARY TRACT & SEX ORGANS. Autonomic neuropathy often affects the organs that control urination and sexual functions. Nerve damage can prevent the bladder from emptying completely , allowing the bacteria to grow in bladder and kidneys causing urinary tract infections. When the nerves of the bladder are damaged,urinary incontinence may result because a person may not be able to sense when the bladder is full or control the muscles that release urine. Autonomic neuropathy also leads to decreased sexual response in men and women. A man may have erectile dysfunction or may reach sexual climax without ejaculating normally. A woman may have difficulty in arousal,lubrication or orgasm. 5.SWEAT GLANDS. Nerve damage may cause improper working of sweat glands.It can also result in profuse sweating at night or while eating. 6.EYES. Due to autonomic neuropathy,pupils become less responsive to changes in light.A s a result,a person may not be able to see well when light is turned on In a dark room or have trouble driving at night. PROXIMAL NEUROPATHY. Proximal neuropathy//lumbosacral plexus neuropathy //femoral neuropathy //diabetic amyotrophy causes pain in the thighs,buttocks,hips or legs,usually on one side of the body. FOCAL NEUROPATHY. Focal neuropathy appears suddenly and affects specific nerves,most often in the head,torso or leg. Focal neuropathy is painful and unpredictable.and occurs most often in older adults with diabetes. However,it tends to improve itself over weeks or months and does not cause long term damage. Focal neuropathy can cause *Inability to focus the eye. *Diplopia. *Aching behind the eye. *Bell's palsy. *Severe pain in the lower back and pelvis. *Pain in the front of the thigh. *Pain in the chest and stomach. *Pain on the outside of the shin or inside of the foot. *Chest pain and abdominal pain is mistaken for heart attack or appendicitis. CAN DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES BE PREVENTED. THE BEST WAY TO PREVENT NEUROPATHY IS TO KEEP BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS AS CLOSE TO THE NORMAL RANGE AS POSSIBLE.MAINTAINING SAFE BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS PROTECTS NERVES THROUGH OUT THE BODY.Dr. Suvarchala Pratap11 Likes21 Answers
