Symptoms of High Blood Sugar
Are you wondering what happens when blood sugar is too high? Type 2 diabetes will lead to symptoms of high blood sugar and most people of unaware of what is going on with their body! Commonly most individuals begin with feeling fatigue, drowsiness and tired all the time. If you find yourself experiencing the symptoms of high blood sugar like noticing a huge drop in energy throughout the day then you will need to contact your doctor to have your blood sugar checked.
So, let me ask you, have you been to tired to get off the sofa lately? Does lunch make you feel like you need a nap in the middle of the afternoon? Well it is important for you to understand that insulin resistance and elevated blood sugar could be the culprit!
Anothersign of high blood sugar for many is the vascular damage that reduces blood flow, which impacts your body’s ability to heal and fight infection. The smallest cut or blister can become a massive, system wide infection very quickly.Diabetics need to inspect their feet every day, looking for puncture wounds, bruises, redness, unusual warmth, blisters, ulcers, scratches, cuts and toenail problems.
The symptoms of high blood glucose can also lead to foot problems and are a big risk for diabetics. The price of ignoring the early effects of diabetes on your feet are ulcers, wounds that won’t heal, neuropathy, charcot foot disorder, and in extreme cases, amputation of a toe, foot, or leg. It’s very important that once diagnosed, you schedule regular visits with your podiatrist so they can create a baseline from which to monitor the health of your feet, ankles, and lower legs.
High blood sugar causes the lens of the eye to swell, which changes your ability to see. Losing your eye sight would be a horrible thing to happen, so you want to make sure you eat the healthy version of food to lower blood sugar and avoid blindness. To correct this kind of blurred vision, you need to get your blood sugar back into the target range. For many people this is from70 mg/dL to 130 mg/dL before meals and less than 180 mg/dL one to two hours after the start of a meal. Ask your doctor what your personal target range should be.
Diabetic neuropathies also appear in people who have problems controlling their blood sugar and those who are overweight. The causes are probably different for different types of diabetic neuropathy. Nerve damage is likely due to a combination of factors:
Have you been asking yourself lately why am I always so hungry? Even after you eat, you may still feel very hungry. Yes, this is another symptom of high blood sugar. That’s because your muscles aren’t getting the energy they need from the food; your body’s insulin resistance keeps glucose from entering the muscle and providing energy. Therefore, the muscles and other tissues send a “hunger” message, trying to get more energy into the body.
What about feeling thirsty all the time? Like no matter how much you drink, it feels like you’re still dehydrated. Your tissues (such as your muscles) are, in fact, dehydrated when there’s too much glucose (sugar) in your blood. Your body pulls fluid from the tissues to try to dilute the blood and counteract the high glucose, so your tissues will be dehydrated and send the message that you need to drink more. This is also associated with increased urination.
