Signs That Shows Your Blood Sugar Is High And 2 Ways To Reduce It

According to webMD, some people around the world don't know some of the signs that show that their blood sugar is high until it is too late and develops into diabetes. In this article, I will educate you on some of the signs that you need to know in order to stay safe and healthy.

1. One of the early warning signs that shows your blood sugar is high is that your vision will be blurred and you will not be able to see things around you clearly. So, you are advised to see your medical doctor for a proper medical checkup before it is too late to handle.

2. Another sign that shows that your blood sugar is high is that you will use the toilet frequently. If your blood sugar is high, your rate of urination will increase drastically. 


Your blood sugar may rise if you:

  • Skip or forget your insulin or oral glucose-lowering medicine
  • Eat too many grams of carbohydrates for the amount of insulin you took, or eat too many carbs in general
  • Have an infection
  • Are ill
  • Are under stress
  • Become inactive or exercise less than usual
  • Take part in strenuous physical activity, especially when your blood sugar levels are high and insulin levels are low


Early signs include:

  • Thirst
  • Headaches
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Blurred vision
  • Frequent peeing
  • Fatigue (weak, tired feeling)
  • Weight loss
  • Blood sugar more than 180 mg/dL
  • Ongoing high blood sugar may cause:

    • Vaginal and skin infections
    • Slow-healing cuts and sores
    • Worse vision
    • Nerve damage causing painful cold or insensitive feet, loss of hair on the lower extremities, or erectile dysfunction
    • Stomach and intestinal problems such as chronic constipation or diarrhea
    • Damage to your eyes, blood vessels, or kidneys

    How Is It Treated?

  • If you have diabetes and notice any of the early signs of high blood sugar, test your blood sugar and call the doctor. They may ask you for the results of several readings. They could recommend the following changes:

  • Drink more water. Water helps remove excess sugar from your blood through urine, and it helps you avoid dehydration.

  • Exercise more. Working out can help lower your blood sugar. But under certain conditions, it can make blood sugar go even higher. Ask your doctor what kind of exercise is right for you.

    Caution: If you have type 1 diabetes and your blood sugar is high, you need to check your urine for ketones. When you have ketones, do NOT exercise. If you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar is high, you must also be sure that you have no ketones in your urine and that you are well-hydrated. Then your doctor might give you the OK to exercise with caution as long as you feel up to it.
