Some tech talk on Sugar ...follow up to why Sugar is NOT Evil.

I have enjoyed reading Andrew Kim's Blog- this post in particular hit home for us and I wanted to share it. Allergies, diet, and sugar are HUGE in our house and I found this post to back up some of our now proven "mom theories" with Abby.

A few cut and copied teasers from his post:

I’ve written about stress and the reasons for keeping it as low as possible. Refer back to those for context for this post. But briefly, the stress hormones—cortisol, adrenalin, noradrenalin, growth hormone, glucagon, and some others—are all catabolic and estrogenic. When they persist in the blood too long or excessively, irreversible degenerative processes are set in motion that affect all aspects and all levels of the body.

First and foremost, a deficiency of glucose—in the cell and blood—potently activates the stress metabolism, operating centrally by way of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. At the same time, the stress metabolism decreases the output of thyroid hormones: Indeed, it’s been repeatedly observed that thyroid hormone output and adrenal cortex activity share an inverse relationship.

n the heart, a deficiency of ATP depresses left ventricular functioning, as there is less energy available for robust contractions and complete relaxations. The impaired contraction also increases the ventricular blood volume so as to impose an increase in pressure on the left side of the heart. Less blood is pumped for every beat of the heart as a result (reduced stroke volume). Moreover, the increased resistance to flow in the blood vessels due to the deficiency of energy (or oxygen) adds further to the stress on the heart. Anything that increases the oxidative metabolism of glucose (of which there are some agents currently in the pipeline) appears to increase the heart’s viability and the chances of survival in patients with heart failure and arrhythmia.

He also goes into some discussion on histamines in this post as well(benadryl +acne)- not only is this post a must read, his entire blog makes sense when talking about Abby's health issues.

Sugar is NOT evil, but very restrictive diets and diets that are not balanced, could be..
