Can high sugar cause eye twitching?

Question: Can high sugar cause eye twitching?

Answer: Refined sugar could be causing eye twitching for a couple reasons. First of all it’s an empty food devoid of any nutritional value. In fact, in order to process it our bodies have to actually use up nutrients like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium. It’s a known fact that having a deficiency in both magnesium and potassium can cause these twitches. Also, we all know about the “sugar rush” and its effects on our nervous system as a stimulant. Stimulants are also known to cause muscle twitching.
