Have you ever felt like something was off with your body, but you weren’t sure what was causing it? When something isn’t quite right with our bodies, we often experience symptoms. Symptoms are the body’s way of letting us know that there’s an underlying problem. On the surface, blurred vision, slow healing of wounds and constant hunger don’t seem to be related. But if you put them together, you might be able to find out what’s really going on. These are all symptoms of high blood sugar.
Our blood contains glucose and carbs, so if we want to measure how much glucose we have, it will give vitality to our cells and our organs. Our body needs insulin in order to keep the amount of sugar normal. This hormone delivers sugar into all the tissues in our body.
People who have diabetes type 1 have problems with the tissues in the pancreas which produce the insulin and people who have diabetes 2 generate insulin, but they can’t use it well.
Our body produces hormone so that it can deal with the illnesses, diseases and stress which can all cause high blood sugar. Many things can cause high blood sugar: injuries, surgeries, more exercise, less movement, some medicines, diseases, contamination, insufficient amounts of insulin etc.
As soon as the level of sugar becomes increased, it starts to make problems. The blood vessels can cause numerous problems as they become injured. Some of them are: loss of eyesight, stroke or kidney problems.
BURNING UP, TINGLING OR DEADNESS
Increased amounts of glucose can cause shivering in the fingers, legs, hips, feet or even deadness. That’s caused by diabetic damaged nerves e.g. an entanglement of diabetic disease.
If the levels of glucose in the blood aren’t balanced, you may feel hungry all the time because you body will need constant energy.
High levels of glucose end up in the kidneys and later in our urine. We need to drink a lot of water so that we could have the frequent need to urinate.
If we urinate for the whole time, we’ll feel thirsty for the whole time.
UNEXPLAINED WEIGHT GAIN OR LOSS
When the cells in our body don’t get the sugar they need, our body burns all the fat and the vitality of the muscles. That may cause weight gain or weight loss.
If our body doesn’t get the glucose it needs for energy, then we’ll feel tired all the time.
If we have high levels of blood sugar, we’ll have problems with our mind as well as trouble focusing.
The nerve fibers might become damages if our levels of glucose are increased. If we notice our injuries are having a hard time recovering, then we need to check our blood sugar.
BLURRED EYESIGHT OR UNSTEADINESS
Having problems with our eyesight shouldn’t be ignored if it starts appearing all of a sudden. The reason can be increased levels of blood sugar.
