“Bubble Tea” sends woman’s sugar and triglyceride readings through the roof! | Samui Times

Thais have been warned to watch how much “Cha Nom Khai Muk” or bubble tea they are consuming. 

Many people like to have a glass a day but this is much too much according to a post on Facebook after a woman had a blood test. 

A poster said a 46 year old woman came to see him complaining of tiredness. She was given heart checks that came back negative. 

Not so for her blood tests. Compared to a year or two ago her glucose levels had rocketed from 105 to 359 and her triglycerides had gone from 222 to 801. 

She admitted that she had been having a glass of Bubble Tea every day on the way to work for the last two months and it was determined that this was responsible for a spike in her numbers. 

The poster said enjoy Bubble Tea – but don’t have too much of it. 

Stands selling the sweet drink are ubiquitous in Thailand. For as little as 10 baht people can get a sugar hit though the price – and quantity – can be much higher in department stores and food courts, notes Thaivisa.
