Many people experience nausea after eating sweets.  If you want to know about what causes nausea after eating sweets, read on.  

Eating sweets can lead to nausea for several reasons. Eating them on an empty stomach, stuff yourself or consuming them when you are diabetic patient can cause nausea. Sweets do not empty from the stomach as quickly, so the bloated stomach feeling make you feel sick.


Below are some information provided about having nausea after sweets:


  • Overeating: Love for chocolate makes it difficult to put the brakes eating sweets. Cakes, doughnuts, and cookies, if eaten in excess are likely to cause a nausea feeling.
  • Empty Stomach: Eating sweets on an empty stomach can cause nausea. Never have sugary items first thing in the morning.
  • Fats: Sweets are carbohydrates and fats. Slow gastric emptying can contribute to a feeling of fullness and nausea.
  • Diabetes: Those with diabetes have to really watch their sugar intake. Eating sweets will only increase these sugar levels. Diabetic ketoacidosis (excess blood acid) is a serious complication than can trigger nausea.
  • Other Causes: Gastro paresis is a stomach paralysis disorder. It causes delayed gastric emptying and nausea. If you are stressed or ill, eating lots of sugar might cause nausea symptoms.


Need not worry if this syndrome, if it’s occasional and generally responds well to over-the-counter or home remedies. If this illness does not respond to homemade remedies, it’s time to visit a doctor. People suffering from diabetes or heart disease should consult a physician in the event of recurring nausea. Seek immediate medical assistance if nausea is accompanied by fever, pain, confusion, or excessive or bloody vomit.


The smell of certain foods even makes one nauseous. I hope this blog helped you understand the reasons of nausea after eating sweets.


Other possible causes of nausea:


  • Exercise: High and low intensity exercise immediately after eating and before eating causes nausea. Nausea is more during exercise when hungry. There is no difference in nausea experienced by men or by women while exercising.
  • Pregnancy: Pregnancy-induced nausea and vomiting after eating in the first trimester of rapid fetal growth is due to the development of the fetal central nervous system.
  • Drug Side Effects: Cyclic vomiting during chemotherapy or as a side effect to medication is unsolved because it is unknown what determines the chronological patterns. Chemotherapy or drugs possibly signals neural systems that modulate the nausea response.
