The sweet crystalline carbohydrate seems to be everywhere and in everything, so even if you are trying to steer clear, chances are you’re eating more sugar than you think. It is important to note that anyone can have high blood sugar levels – not just diabetics. You could be doing harm to your nerves, blood vessels and organs and not know until it’s too late. If you want to prevent worrying symptoms, it is important that you are able to spot the signs and take preventive measures.
If you eat breakfast or lunch that is packed with sugar, you might end up feeling fatigued in the afternoon. Your body will be unable to store and absorb glucose properly and so your cells won’t receive the fuel they need. Having a balanced diet will prevent your blood sugar from going from a sugary high to a lethargic low.
If you’re eating foods high in sugar, glucose will be unable to enter cells, which in turn prevents the body from receiving energy. As a result, your body will ask for food again and again.
High glucose levels can lead to weight loss. Firstly, a high sugar intake will force you to urinate more frequently, which will result in a low fluid level in the whole body and thus you will lose weight. In addition, if the insulin level is insufficient for glucose metabolism then the body will switch to fat burning.
Excessive urination dehydrates the body and as a result it can lead to dry skin. High blood sugar levels can also disrupt sweat glands and can in turn affect the skin-water balance resulting in dryness.
Inability To Concentrate
High blood sugar levels prevent glucose from entering the brain cells, as a result your brain will find it difficult to receive energy. This has a negative impact on your ability to make decisions, as well as the speed at which you think.
