Today we are going to elaborate all of them here:
- Mild high blood sugar – if your sugar levels are constantly a bit higher than your target level, you may experience some mild symptoms of high blood sugar. If you are drinking a lot of liquids, you may urinate more frequent than usual. In this range, some people who suffer from diabetes may not notice these symptoms, and here are the main ones: weight loss, increased urination, increased thirst, increased appetite and fatigue. The young children are of course unable to recognize these symptoms, but the adults can, and they should make a home blood sugar test if they are suspicious of high blood sugar levels. You can become dehydrated if you don’t drink enough liquids which replace the fluids which are lost from the high blood sugar levels. Your children can also be dehydrated. Some symptoms of it include a warm and dry skin and increased thirst, as well as a dry mouth.
- Moderate and severe high blood sugar – if your blood sugar levels are constantly high, you probably have the symptoms of moderate or high blood sugar. The symptoms include: extreme thirst, blurred vision, flushed, hot and dry skin, lightheadedness, drowsiness, restlessness, or difficulty waking up.
In a case where your body produces very little or no insulin (this is with people who suffer from diabetes type one and some people with diabetes type two), the symptoms are: rapid breathing, a strong and fruity breath odor, a weak pulse and a fast heart rate, belly pain, a loss of appetite and even vomiting.
If your blood sugar levels are still rising, you will even become lethargic or confused, and if your blood sugar levels come to an extreme high, then you may even become unconscious.
