In this post, we’re talking about the signs of high blood sugar. Now high blood sugar is a big problem today. Millions of people who don’t have full-blown diabetes have pre-diabetes today and these millions of people are suffering from a lot of different symptoms and you may be one of them so what we’re going to do in this post is talking about the symptoms that are involved with high blood sugar because it’s important to make sure you identify it.
Hyperglycemia is basically saying you have a high amount of sugar in your bloodstream. Here are some of the symptoms that come out of it.
If you’re someone who just finds that you’re thirsty all the time no matter how much you drink you just feel that you’re still not getting enough. We want to make sure that we are going and paying attention to this symptom because it’s a symptom of hyperglycemia. So if your increased thirst all the time there’s a good chance that we have blood sugar problems of blood sugar instability.
Dry mouth is another big when it kind of goes along with that increased Thursday you have a dry mouth very thirsty and you just want to keep drinking water but you’re like “my goodness I already drink so much how much more do I need”.
Headaches is a big one so a lot of people go and get headaches as well to get headaches throughout the day and you know these are the type of people were saying I’m getting a dull headache every single day. Well, there’s a good chance hyperglycemia.
This is one you got to really pay attention to because this one kind of course you know become much worse you can damage your eyes permanently if you’re not getting this under control. So happens because of a couple of reasons, first of all, there’ll be swelling in the eye but also the other things that can happen are you can start to have an increased amount of blood vessels that will start to form in the eye as well causing blurred vision. So we want to not avoid taking care of it if we’re having this issue.
So you’re running to the bathroom all day but you’re also up all night. If this is a problem for you then once again we would correlate it to maybe did you eat a lot of carbohydrates, did you eat a lot of sugar. What’s happening that is causing that cuz sometimes people go in and out of some of these different symptoms. What we try to get people to do is actually correlate these symptoms to the way that they’re eating.
Weight loss issues because even though you have high blood sugar you’re not able to actually get that sugar into the cell the kidney is trying to dump it so fast that you start to get this big you know uneven physiology occurring in the body. So what happens you actually start to lose weight inability to concentrate you’re not able to focus and then of course sores and wounds that won’t heal. So this is a problem too you’re getting different wounds on your body and you’re just not healing is taking forever so that is this sign of hyperglycemia as well. So pay attention to these symptoms because like we said they can actually become something much more severe down the road.

Let’s go ahead and talk about changes that you can implement today in order to help bring your blood sugar down.
So if you’re someone who’s not exercising at all start exercising. If you’re not into it that’s not your thing start with a 30-minute walk a day. Get out there do a 30-minute brisk walk it’s going to help and it’s going to support and driving you in the right direction. Now also when we look at exercise high-intensity interval training is very powerful for bringing down blood sugar and insulin levels and also weight training as well. So we want to make sure that we’re increasing our exercise. If we’re going from nothing to something that something is still better than the nothing.

This is so important when it comes to the overall diet. This is one of the most important changes that you can make. Now when we look at diet we want to look at sugar-free. We also want to look at the low carb. Now the reason, this is important is because of course you know actually putting sugar in our food or buying food with lots of sugar is going to cause a lot of issues but also the carbohydrates. They’re gonna break down in your body as sugar especially if you have this blood sugar instability issue. Essentially these cars are just going to drive your blood sugar up.
