Doctor Hideki Taniguchi teaches how to deal with plastic bottle syndrome and how to properly rehydrate!
・What is plastic bottle syndrome?
Hyperglycemia is a symptom of hyperglycemia caused by continuously drinking large amounts of bottled beverages (sports drinks, juices, soft drinks, etc.) that contain a lot of sugar, or by consuming excessive amounts of sweet foods. When blood sugar levels rise, the pancreas secretes a hormone called insulin, which takes sugar from blood vessels into cells and prevents blood sugar levels from rising. Sugar taken into cells is converted into energy within the cells and becomes the driving force for our life activities, but if blood sugar levels become too high, insulin secretion cannot be done in time. As a result, sugar cannot be taken into cells, and the energy source necessary for life activities cannot be met. Then, our body obtains energy by shifting its energy source to fat and muscle, and at the same time produces large amounts of acidic substances called ketone bodies. This condition is diabetic ketoacidosis, also known as plastic bottle syndrome.
Plastic bottle syndrome begins with intense thirst, which leads to a desire for more bottled drinks, which leads to high blood sugar levels and an increased production of ketone bodies, resulting in a vicious cycle whose initial symptoms include fatigue, severe thirst, In severe cases, symptoms such as excessive urination, vomiting, abdominal pain, clouded consciousness, and coma (diabetic coma) may appear, making it extremely dangerous.
*Pet bottle syndrome does not occur even if you drink bottled drinks containing sugar-free drinks such as mineral water or tea.
・What to be careful about to avoid getting plastic bottle syndrome Diabetic patients are at high risk of developing plastic bottle syndrome, so they should avoid drinking bottled drinks as much as possible. Furthermore, if you consume sugar from bottled drinks, you will have to reduce the amount of food you eat, making dietary restrictions even more strict.
Even if you are not diabetic, it is important to be aware of the upper limit of sugar intake per day when leading a diet. Soft drinks contain about 10g (40kcal) of sugar per 100mL, and sports drinks contain about 6g (24kcal) of sugar per 100mL. For example, if you drink 2L of soft drink, the sugar content will be around 200g (800kcal), almost reaching the daily limit.
・How to properly distinguish between water and sugary soft drinks It is best to differentiate between “everyday drinks → water, tea”, “unusual drinks → sports drinks, oral rehydration solutions”, and “temporary drinks for special occasions → sugar-containing soft drinks”. Probably. Food is important for ingesting the energy and various nutrients necessary for life activities. If you consume a drink that contains a lot of sugar between meals, the drink will fill you up and increase your blood sugar level, reducing your appetite. As a result, the amount of food intake decreases, causing problems in life activities. Therefore, water and tea are suitable for daily drinking. On the other hand, it is okay to drink sports drinks to replenish energy and vitamins after playing sports, or to drink oral rehydration solutions when you are dehydrated due to dehydration or heatstroke. Also, there is no problem with soft drinks containing sugar if you drink them temporarily, such as to enhance the flavor of a meal or to enjoy as a snack.
・What is the appropriate hydration method to prevent heatstroke? Rather than just trying to drink cold drinks, it’s important to drink enough fluids to help you sweat, control your body temperature, and get more blood flowing through your skin’s blood vessels. In addition, if you drink a large amount of water at once, it will be excreted in the urine, so it is important to drink water in small portions over several times. First, choose a drink that you can drink in large quantities at a temperature that is comfortable for you and that is not high in sugar or salt. Drinking one glass (150 to 180 ml) about 8 times between the time you wake up in the morning and before you go to bed will ensure you are drinking enough water. It is also a good idea to consume drinks that contain salt only when you are sweating a lot. ・A fun and easy way to stay hydrated even if you don’t like water Instead of just drinking water, it’s a good idea to get into the habit of consuming water with your meals and snacks. You can also set a goal for the amount and time you drink water, make a sheet like a stamp rally, and have fun drinking it. Hydration can be achieved not only through drinks but also through food, so it is a good idea to add fruits and summer vegetables to your daily meals to replenish your hydration.
・Instruction on hydration methods recommended by Dr. Taniguchi I eat one kiwi per day to stay hydrated. Not only is kiwi rich in vitamin C, which is necessary to combat the heat, and potassium, magnesium, and calcium, which are lost through sweat, but it also has a low GI value, which indicates the rate of increase in blood sugar levels after a meal, so it can reduce your desire for sweetness. and does not raise blood sugar levels too much. It is also suitable as a hydration drink taken before bed. We also always have a stock of handmade Chinese teas made from your favorite tea leaves, such as Pu’er tea, oolong tea, and jasmine tea. The advantage of making tea at home is that you can easily make tea to the strength that suits you. I also love cold brew coffee and keep it stocked in my refrigerator at home. Using delicious water will enhance the flavor of your iced coffee.

Premium Water’s four commitments to natural water
About Premium Water’s carefully selected natural water:
Premium water undergoes safe “non-heat treatment” to deliver the “raw” taste of natural water. “Non-heat treatment” does not reduce dissolved oxygen, which is a measure of water quality and taste, so the natural taste and mellowness of natural water stand out. “Water sampling area”
At Premium Water, we have established six criteria for selecting our own water sampling locations. So far, we have visited approximately 160 water sources across the country, and currently have selected eight carefully selected water sampling locations.
“Mineral Balance”
We carefully select natural water that contains well-balanced minerals, one of the five major elements necessary for the body. Therefore, in addition to being able to ingest mineral components in daily life, all natural water is slightly alkaline and soft water, so even small children can drink it with confidence.
The raw water pumped up from the groundwater vein is carefully sterilized through four or more stages of filtering, and then bottled in new plastic bottles in a sterile clean room. During the
manufacturing process, we conduct regular daily water quality tests and monthly tests for radioactive substances in accordance with our own strict quality control regulations to deliver safe natural water. About premium water
