An 18-year-old girl from Shanghai, China fell into a coma after she consumed too much bubble or pearl milk tea. She drank this super sweet beverage twice daily for one whole month.
KAMI learned that her unhealthy habit led to complicated health issues.
As per Asia Wire, the girl's family discovered her already unconscious. They likewise reported that she exhibited symptoms related to hyperglycemia, or a condition characterized by extremely high blood sugar levels.
RMN stated that some of the symptoms that the patient suffered from were nausea, dehydration, and frequent urination.
The patient was brought to the Ruijin Hospital where doctors discovered that her blood sugar was 25 times higher than normal, said New York Post.
She was placed on a ventilator and received kidney dialysis. She then woke up from a coma five days later.
As per Healthline, an average cup of bubble tea has 54 grams of sugar while its iced tea counterpart only has 22 grams.
The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that men should not consume more than nine teaspoons or 36 grams of sugar daily. For women, it must not be more than six teaspoons or 25 grams daily.
In a previous KAMI report, also related to food, but with a positive aspect, a food delivery rider was lauded by netizens after he sacrificed so much to protect the food of his customer, including enduring the flooded street.
Food delivery services are very popular nowadays, especially with limited transportation available. Among the popular ones are Grab Food and FoodPanda.
