Hi doctor,

Whenever I eat sweets, I get hyperactive. I feel like running and after a few minutes I used to get headache. Can you help me understand what kind of disease is this? Do we have a name for it? How do I control it? How can I treat my headache? Do I need to go for any special treatment?



Welcome to

We are here to help you.

  • Yes, we have a name for this condition known as sugar intolerance.
  • This occurs due to deficiency of an enzyme sucrase which may result in malabsorption of sugar and sweet products and can cause these symptoms.
  • The best treatment for it is to avoid sweets and increase the consumption of fruits.
