Sometimes foods and drinks that are high in sugar can raise a NON-diabetic's blood sugar a bit too high, too fast. That makes you hyperglycemic (too much sugar in the blood) which can have some of the following symptoms:
nausea
lethargy
loss of appetite or increased appetite
shallow breathing
upset stomache.

Food that have this effect are usually ones without protein. They have an immediate effect on blood sugar and then dip you down in the opposite direction in an hour or so. This makes your body feel awful (my husband has this reaction and he is not diabetic). Some juices, punches, and sodas can cause this reaction in people.

IF YOU think this is the case, try iced tea without sugar instead of coke or lightly sweetened drinks such as Diet Snapple. Avoid juices or slurpees or high sugar drinks which basically shock the system and can make you feel like a slug and increase thirst. Also all that sugar has no place to go if you don't run it off and will turn to fat. Not good. I think this is a result of originating from an agrarian society where we used to eat meat and veggies more than ding dongs Posted Image and Pepsi. Posted Image

Of course.. seeing a doc is the BEST bet !!!

Please keep us updated. I am concerned. Ty!

It will be interesting to see if your feeling returns with non-sugary beverages. I don't know if I am right about you, but I know that you don't have to be diabetic to feel sick with a high dosage of sugar. I think Coke has something like 8 tsps of sugar. Think if you poured yourself a nice tall glass of water then dumped 8 tsp of sugar in it. Yum! LOL

I have to admit that I am addicted to Diet Coke. I've been drinking it since I was 8 years old.
I am also an iced tea freak.
