10 Signs You Have Dangerous Glucose Levels

1.Fatigue:                                                                

If you feel tired, weak, and fatigued most of the time, this is a non-specific early sign of diabetes. This is not necessary that you have a high blood sugar level; this can trigger due to something else. But, it is essential to have a check for this fatigue, so that it could adequately be diagnosed. Our body converts the food or anything we eat into glucose. The glucose is used to fuel our body cells. The body cells require insulin to take that glucose. If your body is not making enough insulin, or the cells resist the insulin in the body, the cells would not consume glucose. In this, you will be hungrier and tired than usual.

2.Peeing more:

A healthy person pee four to seven times in 24-hours. The diabetic person may go a lot more than this. This is because our system absorbs glucose when it passes through the kidneys. With diabetes, when the body pushes more sugar, the kidneys may not be able to collect and absorb all the sugar back in. This will lead to making more urine, the fluids that could take up all the sugar outside of the body. You will have to go more often. You will feel thirsty, as you are peeing more. The liquids intake in your body are not rational; with the thirst, the body will try to balance the liquid inside it.

3.Dry mouth:

As your body is using more fluids to make pees, there are fewer liquids for other things. In this way, you can go dehydrated and your mouth may feel dry. The dry skin can lead to making you itchy.

4.Headaches:

Headaches are common. But, if you are dealing with it more than usual, you need to have a watch for it. Have a proper check-up to diagnose the kind of headache your body is dealing with. Is it migraines? The check-up will diagnose the type of headache; chronic headaches deserve to be discussed with your doctor.

5.Blurred vision:

The high glucose level in the body impacts negatively on your retina. The effect can be dangerous, and in some cases, you may lose vision altogether. The condition in medical jargon is called Diabetic retinopathy. In a mild version of it, you may notice blurred vision and extra floaters.

6.Difficulty Concentrating:

Our brain consumes about 20-percent of all glucose a body produces. The total body weight ratio of it is around 2-percent, but the depleted glucose level showcases the amount of energy a brain requires to function. With the increased glucose level in our body, the system tries to flush out the extra glucose produced. The body sends out the extra glucose to brand, the vital fuel of it, and in this way, you will have to struggle when think. If you do not think about anything, or finding it difficult to remember things or focus on a particular task, have a check-up.

7.Slow healing:

High glucose level affects the blood flow. The highest level affects the nervous system and disrupts it. A minor wound would not heal as usual. You will see the nerve damage occurred due to high sugar level slow down the natural healing process of our body. If you witness any of the sign in your body, the little wound has turned out to be a massive wound, have a check-up. It is the sign of type 2 cancer where you need to have particular medication to maintain the sugar level.

8.Yeast infection:

Both men and women can have a Yeast infection if they are facing type-two diabetes. Yeast feeds on glucose, with increased sugar level, the more area will be prone to the Yeast attack. The infection can grow in any moist fold skin, between the toes and finger and for women under breasts.

9.Itchy skin:

Poor blood circulation is another impact of high glucose level. Chronic high blood sugar leads to dehydration, resulting in poor blood circulation. With poor blood circulation, all areas of your body would not have a fresh blood supply, resulting in itchy and dry skin. You may feel feet and lower legs numbness. The high glucose level first attack would be the nervous system. In severe form of it, you may feel your hands and feet wholly numbed.

10.Appetite increase with no weight gain:

A diabetic person may have a high sugar level in the blood, but the glucose in the blood cannot be used by the cells to produce energy. This happens because either the body is not producing enough insulin or not capable of handling the insulin produced correctly. Insulin is a vital ingredient to make the sugar used effectively. For a person with high blood sugar level, the cells would not be having the sugars resulting lack of energy. In this way, the body leads to polyphagia, where the body triggers the hunger signals. Your appetite will increase without gaining any weight. The person with diabetes would not be gaining weight even if he is overeating. If a person is eating more with no weight gain, suggests having a proper check with an expert doctor. This can be due to some other reasons, but having a proper test would give you peace of mind.
