Studies have proven that the occurrence of hypertension or high blood pressure can strongly be associated with a high amount of sugar in the bloodstream. This is a result of the excessive accumulation of glucose which is unable to be broken down by the body.
2. Joint pains.
Although, joint pains can be related to many other factors like; environmental impact, age, stress, malaria or fever – notwithstanding; research has also proven joint and muscular pains as a sign of excessive sugar in the body. Consuming foods that are relatively high in sugar can amount to system inflammation – which can invariably lead to joint pains.
3. Toothache or dental issues.
The presence of toothache and decay is definitely one of the obvious signs of the excessive intake of sugary food. However, studies have shown that toothache can be caused by other elements which include age, poor oral hygiene, dental injury, oral infections and diseases. When sugary food is consumed and left hanging on the teeth, it will amount to tooth infection which might eventually lead to decay.

When you notice sugary food aren’t sweet or tasty enough, could be a sign you are addicted to sugar.
