Hyperglycemia is when you have too much sugar in your blood. It is usually the first symptom diagnosed with a patient with diabetes. They take a quick finger prick size of blood, put it on a test strip and in a few seconds they indicated if you have too much blood sugar in your blood. You can also buy the testing device at your local grocery store or pharmacy, does not require a perscription and runs anywhere from $8-$108 for the testing unit.
So the symptoms most commonly associated with Hyperglycemia are:
- Frequent urination
- Increased thirst
- Difficulty concentrating
- Blurred vision
- Fatigue (weak, tired feeling)
- Weight loss
- Blood sugar more than 180 mg/dL
- Skin infections
- Slow-healing cuts/sores
- Decreased vision
- Nerve damage
- Stomach and intestinal problems such as chronic constipation or diarrhea
....feel a disclaimer coming on...... I am not a doc or in anyway authorized to give any medical advice, simply a patient educating myself (and maybe you) on what I learned along my path to a healthier lifestyle.. please consult your health care provider if you believe you might have diabetes or call 911 in case of a medical emergency...... thank you now back to the blog.
Some people take insulin to lower their sugars, while I am on insulin, I am not going to focus on this avenue as it is really the last option path and should be used in combination with other steps to lower your blood sugar.
Moderate Hyper does not make you pass out or put you in a coma but it does lead to some pretty naste results.
