This is the sugar crush, and it happens when too much sugar in the blood triggers nerve compression, causing chronic inflammation in the nerves. Inflamed and damaged nerves cause reduced blood flow and the disruption of important messaging between the brain and organs. Simply put, damaged nerves cause damage to the organs they connect, meaning sugar is the potential root cause of a wide host of diseases
