Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. Many individuals have sensitivity to refined sugar contained in cakes, chocolate or sweetened drinks. This by no means is a diagnosis of diabetes. If you are experiencing these symptoms from ingesting foods or drinks prepared with refined sugar, it is best to avoid them. It may be that you may also have food allergies which require further investigation. You will be required to see an allergist to conduct testing to see what specific foods you are allergic to.
