How Much Halloween Candy is Too Much?

Ms. Career Girl

A sugar high happens when there are extremely high levels of blood sugar, which results in high energy and shaking of the hands. A sugar crash usually happens within an hour, and glucose levels in the body will drop, causing energy to decline as well. When you eat a lot of sugar, your blood sugar levels rise, which causes the pancreas to produce insulin, a hormone that prompts cells to absorb blood sugar for energy and storage.
