Sugar doesn’t just cause weight gain—it has negative effects on almost every part of your body. Today we’re going to talk about how sugar affects your red blood cells.
A1C is a test that measures how much sugar is stuck to your red blood cells. If you have an A1C of 5.7% or less, that would be considered normal. An A1C between 5.7% and 6.4% would be considered prediabetes, and 6.4% or higher would be considered diabetes.
A healthy red blood cell is flexible, and it should be able to free flow and carry oxygen through the body. Sugar lowers the ability of the red blood cells to carry oxygen and reduces the volume of red blood cells.
An unhealthy red blood cell that has sugar stuck to it will be very stiff and sticky. This can cause clots and can cut off blood flow to certain tissues, which can lead to necrosis, gangrene, and infections.
It can also cause problems with the eyes, including diabetic retinopathy, which can lead to blindness. Other areas of the body that are affected are the gums, kidneys, and arteries.
An A1C test is a better test than a blood sugar test, and it can even be done right at home using a home testing kit.
It doesn’t take much sugar to raise your glucose and create a high A1C causing negative effects on your body.
Instead of only trying to treat the symptoms of this issue, start working on your diet. Try cutting out sugar and getting on the Healthy Keto diet, and see how much better you feel.
