Disease prevention and treatment

Your Sugar Level May Be High If You Have These Signs

1. Consistent urination.

To consume all of the extra sugar in your blood, your kidneys must function overtime. If they are unable to keep up, the body excretes it along with the water it needs.

2. Hunger

To flush out the extra sugar, the body extracts water from its tissues. When your brain detects that you are thirsty, you drink more because you need liquid to produce energy, add supplements, and eliminate waste.

3. Mouth dryness

When your body expels the liquid from your mouth, the corners of your mouth will become dry and broken. When you have more sugar in your blood than saliva, disease is almost inevitable. Your gums may swell, and white spots on your tongue and cheeks may appear (your primary care physician will call these oral thrush). Drink more water or chew sugar-free gum.

4. Problems with the skin

The body draws water from all over to dispose of excess glucose. Dry, itchy, and broken skin can result, especially on the legs, elbows, feet, and hands. Glucose levels that are too high can cause nerve damage over time. The medical name for this disease is diabetic neuropathy. It can make it more difficult to detect bruises, wounds, and contaminations. Without treatment, they can develop more serious problems, such as losing a toe, a foot, or a leg.

5. Problems with vision

It's possible that your body is removing liquid from the focal points of your eyes, making it difficult to concentrate. Furthermore, high glucose levels can damage the veins in the back of the eye (retina). This can result in long-term vision problems, if not complete blindness.

6. Weakness 

When you have type 2 diabetes and your blood glucose levels are consistently elevated, insulin, which helps your cells move energy, becomes less receptive.

Due to a lack of resources, you will feel tired. Due to the body's inability to produce insulin, type 1 diabetes causes fatigue. If you don't manage your levels properly, they can stay high for a long time. Your PCP will help you manage your prescriptions and make lifestyle recommendations.

7. befuddlement

When your glucose level is dangerously low, you would be perplexed (hypoglycemia). You might muddle your words or lose track of where you are. It can happen so quickly that you don't know you're behaving strangely. In severe cases, you can have a seizure or lose consciousness.
