Dehydration and Blood Sugar
I was doing experiments with Dehydration and Blood Sugar during the month of March 2016.
I drank 300 to 500 ml water on the following days –
- 2.03.2016 to 9.03.2016
- 11.03.2016 to 18.03.2016
- 22.03.2016 to 27.03.2016
On other days I drank 2 to 2.5 litres of water.
On 27.03.2016 I test my blood sugar in the evening. It was 175. During the day I had taken sugar around 10 spoons.
On 28.03.2016 I drank 2.5 litres of water and my blood sugar was 105. During the day sugar and sweet fruits must have contributed sugar in excess of 10 spoons. Blood test was done in the evening.
On 29.03.2016 I drank 2.5 litres of water and my blood sugar was 93. During the day sugar and sweet fruits must have contributed sugar in excess of 10 spoons. Blood test was done in the evening.
I am not taking any medicines for any health issue.
I was feeling that blood clotting is less. I had a small cut while shaving. I had to press at the cut for 2 minutes for bleeding to stop. Same was true of prick for blood sugar test.
These days I run out of breath on running about 100 meters at full speed, sprinting. But I do not get body pain which is usual when I am not regular. This time I am running after 18 months or so. Last 18 months I have been very inactive. Not even walking 1-2 kms daily.
The above may be interpreted to mean that if a person dehydrates in a planned manner, he will lose some sugar in urine and hence he may report low sugar when he resume normal water intake.
This requires planned dehydration as mentioned in the home page of this web site.
