Diabetics are not the only ones who have high levels of blood sugar, though most of us think so. Every person can suffer from it, and not even aware of what harm it is to its nerves, blood corpses and organs. See how to recognize high blood sugar levels and what to do to prevent possible complications of this underlying disease.
1. Increased fatigue
Due to elevated blood sugar levels, the body is unable to properly store and absorb glucose – which causes the person to feel tiredly for no reason.
2. Frequent urination
When the blood sugar level is high, the kidneys can not absorb liquidity – which leads to frequent urination.
3. Dry mouth, increased thirst
Dry mouth and strong thirst are responsive to increased loss of fluid. The hypothalamus, which evaluates the level of dehydration and provokes a feeling of thirst, sends brain signals. Under these circumstances, it is best to always drink water.
4. Constant hunger
A high blood sugar level prevents glucose from entering the cells. As a result, the body does not get enough energy and constantly searches for food.
5. Weight Loss
Here are the reasons for weight loss due to high blood sugar levels:
a) Loss of fluid due to frequent urination leads to a low level of fluid in the entire body, resulting in weight loss.
b) When isuline is insufficient for glucose metabolism, the body begins to burn fat.
c) Because of its high glucose levels, the body consumes a lot of calories to produce a large amount of urine and thus “overcomes” excess glucose.
6. Infectious Diseases
A large amount of sugar creates an ideal environment for the reproduction of yeasts and bacteria, leading to fungal and urinary infections.
7. Dry skin
Skin can be associated with high blood sugar levels for several reasons:
a) It is often pressurized by the dehydration of the body until it measures the skin to begin to dry.
b) Problems with skin on the feet are a sign of atherosclerosis – the build up of lipids and some minerals on the walls of the blood vessels leads to their rupture and complicated blood circulation, and this disease is common in diabetics.
c) Damaged nerves may impair the normal function of sweat glands, which affect the skin’s moisture.
8. Concentration problems
A high sugar level prevents glucose from entering the brain cells. This affects the speed of thinking and making decisions.
9. Blurred vision
Blurred vision is a result of dehydration due to high blood sugar levels – it also affects the eye cells. As a result, they are deformed and around lose their ability to properly focus.
10. Slow wound and bruise healing
This is due to vascular damage resulting from a high level of sugar.
11. Reduced libido
High levels of blood sugar negatively affect the nerves, good blood flow, and proper hormone balance. Excess blood sugar negatively affects these systems.
According to research, people with high levels of sugar are disturbed, irritable – and in some cases depressed. The brain relies on supplying equal amounts of glucose, so sudden leaps at its level negatively affect its work. As a result, our mood is getting worse.
