What are the behavioral and medical effects of having too much insulin in your body?
insulin is one of the major regulatory hormones in the body. it is essential for survival. having too much or too little will definitely cause problems. insulin regulates the level of glucose in the blood, it lowers down glucose to safe normal levels to maintain homeostasis. elevated levels of insulin will cause hypoglycemia and if left unchecked can cause death. symptoms includes, confusion, increased heart rates and blood pressures, profuse sweating and seizures. you can check more articles in internal medicine in this site lowellmd202.blogspot.com

Answer . There are some major differences in opinion on this question. Two viewpoints are shown and an individual will have to consider the information and links provided t…o reach their own conclusions regarding the safety of this product. If you have concerns, you should consult with your medical professionals.. Answer . Aspartame is the methyl ester of two amino acids: phenylalanine and aspartic acid. It was discovered serendipitously by James Schlatter, who was conducting ulcer drug research in the mid-1960's. One cannot consume "too much" aspartame. Before a food additive is approved, regulatory agencies require specific scientific evidence that is safe for its intended uses and that its projected level of intake (estimated daily intake) is less than the ADI. Expressed in milligrams of additive per kilogram body weight, it is the dose, if consumed on a daily basis over a lifetime, that would cause no adverse effects. The ADI of aspartame is 50 mg/kg of body weight per day (22 cans of a diet soft drink for a 175 pound man; 15 cans for a 120 pound woman; 6 12-oz. cans for a 50-pound child). It is important to note that the ADI is not a specific point at which safety ends and possible health concerns begin, and occasionally consuming levels above the ADA would not be expected to cause any negative health effects.. Aspartame does not represent any more of a threat than does a banana, which also contains phenylketones. In other words, normal use, even by a diabetic or other individual who is avoiding sugar, should not cause any significant problems if you have a normal ability to process phenylketones. As always with medical questions, if you have any concerns regarding the subject, it is strongly recommended that you consult your physician.. Answer . Consider that aspartame (branded as "Equal", "NutraSweet") is considered an ant insecticide. It was previously banned by the FDA for causing brain tumors, until the chairman of the corporation's board, Donald Rumsfield, encouraged the FDA to change the status of aspartame from a hazardous material to "generally recognized as safe". Since then, the documents from the FDA about brain tumors have disappeared, but the numbers can still be found in independent university research. "Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death. A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as being caused by aspartame include: Headaches/migraines, dizziness, seizures, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, weight gain, rashes, depression, fatigue, irritability, tachycardia, insomnia, vision problems, hearing loss, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, loss of taste, tinnitus, vertigo, memory loss, and joint pain." The use of Aspartame has been banned in several European countries.
HIGH COPPER . Copper levels are more often too high than too low. High copper can be toxic.. Physical Symptoms of High Copper: . Headaches . Hypoglycemia . Increased hea…rt rate . Nausea . Copper deposits in the brain and liver causing damage. . Damage to the kidneys . Inhibit urine production . Causes anemia . Causes hair loss in women . High copper interferes with zinc, which is needed to manufacture digestive enzymes. Many high copper people dislike protein and are drawn to high-carbohydrate diets because they have difficulty digesting protein foods.. Excessive copper in children is associated with hyperactive behavior, learning disorders such as dyslexia, ADD and infections such as ear.. Psychological Symptoms of High Copper: . Autism type symptoms . Depression . Hallucinations . Hyperactivity . Insomnia . Paranoia . Personality changes . Psychosis . Schizophrenic type symptoms . Overstimulation . Disperception of the senses, time, body, self and others. . Produces hypomanic states . Detachment from reality . Causes of High Copper: . Excess estrogen in the meat supply (estrogen used as a growth hormone in the meat industry was discontinued in the 80's and replaced with testosterone, etc.) . Birth control pill . Use of prescription medications containing copper. . Smoking . Too much copper in drinking water . Zinc and manganese deficiency raises copper levels. . Copper lowers the histamine levels. . It takes 3 months to lower the level in the body.
C0 2 levels are reflected by a more acidic blood (lower pH).
Potassium is fundamentally involved in a massive amount of body processes, such as fluid balance, protein synthesis, nerve conduction, energy production, muscle contraction, s…unthesis of nucleic acids and control of heartbeat.In many of its roles, potassium is opposed by sodium, and the two positive ions are jointly balanced by the negative ion, chloride. . Functions of Potassium in the body . Regulates heart function . Reduces blood pressure . Essential for protein and nucleid acid synthesis . Required for normal fluid balance . Fundamental for normal nerve and muscle function . Converts glucose into glycogen (muscle fuel) . Important role in kidney function . Helps lungs eliminate carbon dioxide . Needed to maintain acid/alkali balance . As the heart is a large muscle that is continually, rhythmically contracting, potassium is extremely important to proper heart function. Since it also controls the creation of glycogen (used by muscles for fuel) from glucose (blood sugar), it also controls the muscular fuel supply. . Hyperkalemia is an excess of serum potassium. Most potassium in the body (98%) is found within cells; only a small amount usually circulates in the bloodstream. The balance of potassium between the cells and the blood is critical to the body. It affects the way the cell membranes work and governs the action of the heart and the pathways between the brain and the muscles. If you have excess potassium in the blood, it is usually excreted by the kidneys. However, the levels can get too high if your kidneys aren't working right, which is the most common cause of hyperkalemia. Another cause is damaged cells' releasing potassium into the bloodstream faster than even normal kidneys can clear it. Medications or diet may also affect the amount of potassium in the blood. Hyperkalemia is a serious condition that must be treated promptly. . Signs and Symptoms . Fatigue . Weakness . Tingling, numbness, or other unusual sensations . Paralysis . Palpitations . Difficulty breathing . What Causes It? . Hyperkalemia has many causes, including the following. . Kidney problems . Too much acid in the blood, as sometimes seen in diabetes . Diet high in potassium (bananas, oranges, tomatoes, high protein diets, salt substitutes, potassium supplements) . Trauma, especially crush injuries or burns . Addison's disease . Certain medications . Drug Therapies . Prescription . Insulin-moves potassium from the bloodstream back into cells; various side effects . Sodium bicarbonate-moves potassium from the bloodstream back into cells; various side effects . Beta agonists-move potassium from the bloodstream back into cells; various side effects . Diuretics-cause potassium excretion from kidneys; various side effects . Binding resins-promote potassium/sodium exchange in gastrointestinal system; various side effects .

The rate of cellular metabolic activity affects and, at the same time, is affected by the pH of the body fluids. In mammals, the normal pH of arterial blood lies between 7.35 …and 7.50 depending on the species (e.g. healthy human-arterial blood pH varies between 7.35 and 7.45). Blood pH values compatible with life in mammals are limited to a pH range between 6.8 and 7.8. Acidosis is said to occur when arterial pH falls below 7.35, while its counterpart (alkalosis) occurs at a pH over 7.45. Arterial blood gas analysis and other tests are required to separate the main causes. Depending on the type of acidosis occurring, different symptoms may appear: Metabolic acidosis is an increased production of metabolic acids, usually resulting from disturbances in the ability to excrete acid via the kidneys. Renal acidosis is associated with an accumulation of urea and creatinine as well as metabolic acid residues of protein catabolism. Symptoms may include: . Increased rate and depth of breathing . Hyperventilation . Pale and clammy skin . Cardiac arrythmias . Decreased heart rate . Dizziness . Cough . Mental confusion . Fits . Respiratory acidosis results from a build-up of carbon dioxide in the blood (hypercapnia) due to hypoventilation. It is most often caused by pulmonary problems, although head injuries, drugs (especially anaesthetics and sedatives), and brain tumors can cause this acidemia. Pneumothorax, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, severe pneumonia, and aspiration are among the most frequent causes. It can also occur as a compensatory response to chronic metabolic alkalosis. Symptoms may include: . Confusion . Easy fatigue . Lethargy . Shortness of breath . Sleepiness

If your body produces too much insulin, you are what they call Hypoglecimic. This is not diabetes. Diabetes is when your pancreas produces no insulin at all. Hypoglecimics jus…t have to check their sugars (depending on how bad theirs is) and eat carbohydrates to keep their sugars up. Hope this helps.
It is all to do with osmosis: If you have two areas and one has a high salt concentration then the water will balance out the concentration. So if you have loads of salt in y…our bloodstream then all the water from your cells will be sucked out and you will die. Simple as. To stop you from dieing your two kidneys work to remove the salt from your bloodstream. If you eat too much salt your kidneys get overworked and could fail. If your kidneys fail then you either: a - Go to the hospital once a week for several hours while a machine filter salt from your bloodstream, you spend all your life feeling tired because of the high salt levels in your blood. b - You get an device fitted into your chest which acts like the kidneys but not as well. You still need to watch your diet and will always be bloated and feel tired. c - Die, it's not funny, you really would.
