Type 2 diabetes is rapidly increasing in western populations which have sedentary lifestyles and carbohydrate rich diets. A French study observed 3615 people with normal blood sugar levels in a 9 year study. The French research found that people who drink four or more glasses of water per day are 21 per cent less likely to develop high blood sugar levels than people that drink less than two glasses of water a day. From a blood chemistry point of view this actually makes sense because even small amounts of dehydration cause other elements in the blood to become more concentrated. For instance dehydration causes higher concentrations of sugar, sodium and potassium to occur in the blood. Potassium level is a primary control of heart rhythm and high levels of potassium due to dehydration, can cause heart palpitations. Oh and by the way if you want to get the most out of drinking water to stave off that desire for a burger and fries, make sure its ice cold for the maximum calorie burning effect.
