🔎 Today, we'll examine 10 warning signs of elevated blood sugar levels and discuss proactive measures you can take to control it, including fundamental tips for energy, skin issues, and more.

10: Increased thirst and urination
Increased thirst and urination are signs of high blood sugar as the body tries to flush out excess sugar in the blood through urine, leading to increased thirst.

9: Fatigue
Fatigue is a symptom of insulin resistance and insulin dysfunction caused by high blood sugar levels, which prevent sugar from being moved into cells for energy.
Exercise and physical activity help to overcome fatigue and improve blood sugar control by burning blood glucose and improving insulin function.

8: Blurred vision
Blurred vision is a sign of high blood sugar caused by diabetic retinopathy, where the lenses in the eyes swell, causing vision problems.
Eating a diet rich in whole foods, reducing stress, sleeping well, and reducing sugar and carbohydrates help to protect the eyes from damage.

7: Slow-healing cuts and bruises
Slow-healing cuts and bruises are a sign of high blood sugar as it damages blood vessels, including those in the skin, making it harder to heal.
Poor circulation and thick blood due to high blood sugar levels slow down the healing process, so it's important to focus on a healthy lifestyle and reduce stress and smoking.

6: Tingling or numbness in the hands and feet
Tingling and numbness in the hands and feet are symptoms of Diabetic Neuropathy, which happens when high blood sugar damages blood vessels that supply the nerves reducing their flow of oxygen and nutrients. Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can range from mild to severe and can lead to difficulty performing everyday tasks.

5: Dry skin and itching
High blood sugar can lead to dry skin and itching due to damage to blood vessels, loss of fluids through increased urination, and a reduced ability to produce natural oils. Staying hydrated, avoiding hot water, patting dry with a towel, and using a fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, ceramide-containing moisturizer can help alleviate itching.

4: Frequent infections
High blood sugar weakens the immune system, making you more susceptible to infections as it allows bacteria and viruses to grow and multiply in the body.

3: Dark, velvety patches on the skin
High blood sugar can lead to the formation of dark, velvety patches on the skin called acanthosis nigricans, usually found in the armpits, groin, and back of the neck, which is caused by an overproduction of skin cells and increased pigment and thought to be related to insulin resistance.

2: Rapid weight loss
Rapid weight loss can occur even with increased appetite due to the body breaking down stored fat and muscle for energy instead of glucose. Unexplained weight loss is a serious warning sign and requires medical attention.

1: Fruity-smelling breath
Diabetic ketoacidosis leads to fruity-smelling breath and is a life-threatening complication of diabetes that occurs when the body breaks down stored fat for energy instead of glucose. Immediate medical attention is required.
