Blood Sugar (Definition)

If I cut sugar out my diet except for maybe a cup of orange juice a day and drink only water and do weightlifting and walking will I lose weight?

If I cut sugar out my diet except for maybe a cup of orange juice a day and drink only water and do weightlifting and walking will I lose weight?

Maybe: You have to control two things:

calories ingested

calories burned

That's all. The 3rd factor is your genetically given physiology/metabolism, and how efficiently you burn/utilize calories, and where the body prefers to store fat. Honestly not too much to do about these factors despite all the gimmicks that shysters promote. ...Read more

If my blood sugar goes too low should I take milk or orange juice? I'm a diabetic.

If my blood sugar goes too low should I take milk or orange juice? I'm a diabetic.

Juice definitely: Milk has fat and its lactose content has to bee broken down first before it can be utilized by your body. During an acute hypoglycemic episode, you need fast and quick relief that can only be delivered by simple glucose such as simple juice or glucose tablets/hard candy. ...Read more

Sudden onset of cold sweat, weak, hot, shaking hands, fast breath, intense craving for sugar candy or orange juice. Stop after eating candy.....?

Blood sugar?: Sounds like one of a few things — anxiety or dehydration (which were cured by time) or hypoglycemia (which was cured by the sugar). There are a few other less likely things down the list. You should eat, sleep and exercise regularly. If this is recurrent or you actually lose consciousness as a result of one of these episodes you might want to see someone. ...Read more

Why do I get sick after drinking orange juice? Is this an allergy?

Why do I get sick after drinking orange juice? Is this an allergy?

Not necessary: Allergy to oranges (including juice) can present as itching, hives, wheezing, vomiting, diarrhea and less likely anaphylaxis. If symptoms are limited to stomach upset only, it may be only a food intolerance possibly related to the acidity. If a person can tolerate a small amount, but GI symptoms with larger amounts, this supports an intolerance. Either way, if it bothers a person, avoid. ...Read more

When can a baby drink natural orange juice?

When can a baby drink natural orange juice?

9 mo, but not needed: I would say about nine months, but in moderation. Juice--even natural juice--has a lot of sugar, and isn't as nutritious as all the hype suggests. Better than 'juice drinks', yes, but not that much better. I often suggest diluting it. But, juice is not necessary for your child. It has vitamin c, yes, but that is easily obtained from many other sources. ...Read more

Trivia, avoid OJ: Iron may be slightly better absorbed from an acid medium, but ph powerfully controlled by our stomach ; especially small intestines, where iron absorbed, thus you are being marked nonsense — quite common. The bigger issue is that orange juice is high sugar, as much or more than a sugar soft drink ; is not health, though marketing as healthy to sell the stuff. Can't sell frozen oranges.

I often feel like I may pass out. I drink alittle orange juice and I'm fine. No diabetes, no hypertension. What could this be?

Low blood sugar: Try changing your diet. Cut out fast carbohydrates, eat smaller amounts more frequently, add protein. That feeling is likely low blood sugar, a result of a metabolic overload with fast carbohydrates 2 hours earlier. So coffee and a doughnut at 7 am will lead to a metabolic overload and dump/low blood sugar at 930 am. Be well. ...Read more
