About diabetes and fructose. Does that make sense? Why at all? Doesn’t it make it worse?

The pain relieving expert gives a hint about diabetes and fructose. Does that make sense? Why at all? Doesn’t it make it worse? Let’s take a look at this. Shall we?

Why is fructose still recommended (partly) for diabetes? No insulin is needed for fructose to enter the cells. Therefore, it is said that fructose is metabolised in an insulin-independent way. This is probably why it is recommended as an alternative for existing diabetes or impending diabetes. The term “fructus” comes from Latin and means fruit – and since the sugar in question is naturally found in fruits in particular, it was called fructose for fruit sugar.

How many apples can a person eat at once without getting sick? 3-4? 5-6? How many litres of apple juice can a person drink without getting sick? 1-2 litres? 3-4 litres?How many apples do you need to make 1 litre of apple juice? For the sake of simplicity, let’s assume 6 apples per litre. Who can eat 6 or 12 apples at once? And who wants to do that? 🙂 And this every day… 12 apples, sometimes even 18 apples. Really?

“Nature” makes it difficult, because vitamins, fibre and other substances are added to the internal sugar. That means, if I see it correctly, purely biologically, it was probably never intended in such concrete terms. Do I see that right? What does too much frutose do to the body? In this case, the small intestine cannot completely pass on excessive amounts of fructose (more than 50 g per hour) to the blood. How much fructose is in one litre of juice again? More than 50g!

Excessive consumption can lead to digestive problems. This is because some of the fructose enters the large intestine. The bacteria that live there have a huge party when fructose arrives. If too much fructose is ingested, this can also directly damage the mucous membrane of the small intestine. The so-called “leaky gut syndrome” describes an increased permeability of the intestinal mucosa. (Particles from the food pulp get into the bloodstream).

These foreign substances activate the immune system and promote the development of allergies and autoimmune diseases.In addition to the intestinal flora disorder, fructose stimulates the formation of new fat in the body and at the same time blocks the breakdown of fat. Look at that 😉

In the meantime, it has even become the case that even children’s livers are fatty. Children’s obesity develops particularly frequently when they are given sweetened drinks.Uric acid is produced when fructose is broken down. (In case of excessive consumption.) Fructose – similar to alcohol – inhibits uric acid excretion via the urine. This effect is particularly pronounced in people whose uric acid levels are already significantly elevated. (It´s comparable to extinguishing a fire with petrol, isn’t it? )

I have just started a small excursion into this topic. There is much more to it. Are you interested in this topic? Let me know.

See you next time.

Stay strong.
