Dangers of Uncontrolled Blood Sugar

The human body naturally has sugar, or glucose, in the blood. The right amount of blood sugar gives the body’s cells and organs energy. Too much blood sugar is known as hyperglycaemia.

If your blood sugar is too high for too long, it can cause serious health problems. It’s something to be careful of whether you have diabetes or not.

What High Blood Sugar Feels Like

The symptoms can include:

  • Feeling thirstier than usual
  • Blurred vision
  • Having to pee more often
  • Feeling hungrier than normal
  • Numb or tingling feet

You might also feel more tired than usual, get infections on your skin, or notice that cuts and sores take a long time to heal

How does high blood sugar affect the body?

Urination and thirst: High blood sugar goes into the kidneys and urine. This attracts more water, causing frequent urination. This can also lead to increased thirst, despite drinking enough liquids.

Weight loss: High blood sugar can cause sudden or unexplained weight loss. This occurs because the body’s cells are not getting the glucose they need, so the body burns muscle and fat for energy instead.

Numbness and tingling: High blood sugar can also cause numbness, burning, or tingling in the hands, legs, and feet. This is due to diabetic neuropathy, a complication of diabetes that often occurs after many years of high blood sugar levels.

Complications

High glucose levels can affect you from head to toe. If they’re out of control for a long time, you could have some or all of the following:

  • Heart disease or heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Kidney damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Eye damage
  • Skin problems

Preventing high blood sugar

  • Go keto
  • Eat limited carbs
  • Say NO to sugar
  • Keep a healthy weight
  • Exercise more
  • Eat more fibre
  • Drink more water

Simple dietary changes, such as sticking to a low-carb, high-fiber diet and avoiding added sugars and refined grains, can help you avoid blood sugar spikes.

For most people, making these simple diet and lifestyle changes is a great way to lower your risk of developing insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes

The white substance which is dangerous is sugar not salt
