For anybody reading this post that suspects they are showing diabetes high blood sugar symptoms I recommend that you get to your local doctor for diabetic blood tests straight away.
The technical term for high blood sugar levels is hyperglycemia which means high (hyper) glucose (gly) in blood (emia). This occurs when the body is not using or not making enough of a hormone called insulin. Insulin is used by the body to utilise the sugars or glucose in your body at any one time.
Some high blood sugar symptoms may include –
- Increased and insatiable thirst (or hunger)
- Frequently urinating (especially in the middle of the night while sleeping)
- Sudden and unexplained loss of weight
- Other high blood sugar symptoms can include blurred vision, slow healing of cuts, fatigue, itchy skin
It’s not the end of the world!
I certainly experienced the top three symptoms before I was diagnosed with diabetes. It is important to remember that it is not the end of the world when you are first diagnosed with diabetes. There are many resources available on this website to manage your high blood sugar symptoms should you require it.
The good news is that there are lots of treatments available these days and many new diabetes breakthroughs are happening all of the time. I anticipate that type 1 and type 2 diabetes will be cured in my lifetime. There already exists some natural cures for type 2 diabetes already.
Again to conclude if you are displaying any high blood sugar symptoms please seek medical advice immediately. The sooner you are diagnosed the sooner you can start to feel better.
