Maybe you have heard that taking too much litchi can lead to low blood sugar. Then whether can diabetic nephropathy patients eat litchi to control their blood sugar level?
According to related researches, taking 40 ~ 80 grains of litchi every day is good for normal people. Low blood sugar only occur when the people take too much litchi and have less meals intake. Strict diet plan is the basic for diabetic nephropathy patients, so when patients eat litchi, they often occur low blood sugar. According to our researches, although patients only have few litchi intake, they still suffer low blood sugar symptoms such as dizziness, headache, nausea and vomiting, weakness and so on.
Litchi is very sweet, diabetic nephropathy patients had better not eat. Litchi contains rich fructose which only is transformed into glucose by the liver, then used by human body. However, the fructose retention in blood vessel can not be transformed into glucose in time,so patients will occur low blood sugar. But litchi also is not suitable for lowering blood sugar with so many side effects and too much fructose in body can lead to high blood fat.
All in all, diabetic neophropathy patients can not eat litchi. And in their daily life, they should pay more attention to their diet which should follow the rules of controlling blood sugar and protecting kidney function. Except low blood sugar intake, patients also should limit the salt, fat and protein intake and patients need have enough vitamins and micro-elements intake.
