Extremely Thirsty And Need To Pee A Lot After Eating Certain Carbs
0

7 posts in this topic

Why do I get so extremely thirsty after eating cassava, yams, plaintans but not parsnips, carrots or bananas?

It starts like 20 minutes after. I also need to urinate heavily. And I feel my muscles get filled with water and my body gets harder. It also effects my energy both up and in a strange way fatigue at the same time.

I'm very gluten intolerant and I'm thinking maybe cross reactivity or something. The effect is noticeable when the only carbs that I've have been eating has been parsnips etc for a longer time.

Thoughts?

Sweet potatoes do btw don't give an effect either. So what does sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots, all fruits have in common but not cassava, yams and plaintans?

Diabetes can cause people to urinate frequently.  The body tries to get rid of the excess sugar in the blood stream.

My glucose levels have been tested ok. And I don't get the response to fruits and parsnips. They should have a lot of sugar.

It still sounds like a sugar problem to me.  From what I understand, your glucose levels can test okay until you have full-blown diabetes. 

 

Carbs turn to sugar in your body very quickly.  Also, it depends on what you're eating with the sugary foods.  For example, if you're eating cottage cheese with the fruit you may not see the same response because the protein helps balance it out.

Hm..

Could be a sugar problem. But I don't understand in what way if so.

I can can eat a full plate of parsnip chips and feel nothing. If I eat 1/20 of a plate of cassava/yam chips the reaction starts.

Do I have a problem with some type of sugars that are found in cassava etc but not parsnips/carrots etc? And what would they be, complex carbs or something like that?

Not sure about that one... but parsnips have less carbs, no sugar, and more fiber.  (at least when comparing Trader Joe's brand parsnip chips vs their sweet potato chips).

 

Could be a different food sensitivity altogether.
