1 – Frequent urination: When you have too much sugar in your blood, your kidneys try to excrete out more sugar to get rid of it. And as they excrete the sugar, they pull out water with it too. This causes more water to leave your body in the form of urine, making you visit the bathroom more often.
2 – Increased thirst: As described before, this is a natural effect of frequent urination, because your body becomes dehydrated. you may start feeling thirsty all the time. The dehydration and increased thirst become cyclical. It means that the more you pee, the thirstier you are, which makes you drink more water, as a result of which, more you will pee, and so on. Not only this, but dehydration can also worsen your fatigue in addition to your headaches.
3 – Headaches: This symptom of high blood sugar is due to dehydration. Of course, headaches can be a sign of many different things, but it’s worth getting checked out if it’s something new or coupled with other symptoms.
4 – Fatigue: Feeling tired may be the earliest symptom of high blood sugar. Although tiredness is a pretty nonspecific symptom. But If you notice fatigue regularly occurring right after you eat, it may be due to rising blood sugar levels in your blood. It most commonly happens after eating a carb-heavy diet like pasta or potatoes.
5 – Tingling Sensation In Hands And Feet: Over the years, hyperglycemia can begin to impair nerves, eventually causing nerve damage, called neuropathy. The most common parts affected due to this are your extremities. You might start noticing feelings of tingling, numbness, or burning in your hands, feet, arms, and legs.
6 – Slow-Healing Wounds: High blood sugar can affect your body’s circulatory system as well, impairing blood flow through vessels. Due to this, the body’s ability to heal ulcers or wounds is also impaired as good blood circulation is required for proper healing.
7 – Blurred vision: When there is excess sugar in the blood, it can affect some unexpected areas in the body, like your eyes. Blurred vision is caused by the extra sugar, along with a little water, which gets trapped in the lens in the middle of the eye. If blood sugar levels remain high persistently, it can cause irreversible damage to the lens of your eye, resulting in defective vision.
8 – Recurrent infections: Researches have shown that consistently high levels of sugar can weaken the body’s immune response. This makes it harder for your body to fight off some common pathogens, making you more prone to infections.
For women, if you notice vaginal fungal infections more often, you should get your blood sugar levels checked. This is because excess sugar in your urine helps feed the bacteria that cause these infections.
9 – Nausea & Vomiting:
These symptoms are more specific for a life-threatening condition called Diabetic Ketoacidosis or DKA. Along with nausea and vomiting, diabetic ketoacidosis also causes abdominal pain, difficulty in breathing, dry or flushed skin, the fruity smell in breath. This life-threatening condition happens when the liver is unable to use the sugar in the blood due to deficiency of insulin and begins to break down body fat into a type of fuel called ketones at such a high rate that they make the blood pH acidic. DKA can be fatal if left untreated. so anyone experiencing these symptoms should seek medical attention immediately.
