Does your weight continues to increase although you have lowered your calorie intake and cut of your favorite sweets? Do you know that high glucose levels affect your body weight?
Although it may sound unbelievable, but, if you often suffer from digestive problems, it’s very likely that your blood sugar level is higher than normal. Blood sugar levels jump is normal after consuming certain foods and especially after consummation of foods that are rich in carbs and refined sugar.
If it’s not treated, having too much sugar in the blood for long periods of time may cause serious health problems. There are several factors that contribute to high blood sugar levels. Most common culprits for this condition are:
- Low nutrition
- Physical inactivity
- Certain drugs
- Some health problems
As we have already mentioned, high blood sugar does not necessarily mean that you have diabetes. It’s just one symptom of diabetes. High blood sugar levels can be recognized by a number of symptoms, including:
- Dry mouth
- Thirst (for the most part of the day)
- Frequent need for urination (especially in the evening and during sleep)
- Increase in hunger
- Chronic fatigue
- Excess fat tissue around the stomach
- Weak concentration
- Blurred vision
- Common infections
- Nerve problems
- Slow healing sores
If you have these symptoms or if you suspect high blood sugar, be sure to visit a doctor and make the necessary tests.
If your level is at a high limit, do not start immediately with medication, consult with your doctor and change the lifestyle first and start eating healthy.
