High and unhealthy blood sugar levels are linked to:
- Diabetes – is one of the fastest-growing “diseases” in the world – especially in children
- Memory loss, shrinking of your brain, and Alzheimer’s
- Muscle loss and fat gain
- Poor sleep
- Depression, anxiety, and ADHD
- Imbalanced hormone levels in both men and women – which is linked to hair loss, wrinkles, erectile issues in men, joint pain and inflammation
- Elevated cholesterol and blood pressure
- Lots of other problems and basically, accelerated aging from head to toe, inside and out
Most of us do NOT know we have poor blood sugar levels during the day and a simple blood test is worthless in my opinion. So, I listed some basic signs you should pay attention to.
Top 7 Signs You Have High Blood Sugar Levels
Your body – especially your brain and muscles consumes the most amount of sugar and thus, if you have blood sugar problems – you’ll be tired.
- Frequent Urination
Too much sugar in your blood puts more stress on your kidneys, causing you to urinate more.
- Increased Thirst
The thirst and frequent urination can typically cause dehydration and headaches are one of the main side effects
- Recurring Infections
Consistent high blood sugar can weaken your immune response, making it harder for your body to fight off some infections. Typical ones might be yeast, candida, and UTIs
- Poor Circulation
This is a big one because it can negatively affect your eyes and thus, causing blurry vision. Tingling sensations in your hands and feet. Erectile problems in men.
- Confusion & Poor Memory
Of course, as we get older, memory tends to not be as good. And one major cause of this is due to high blood sugar levels and your body and brain not being able to process and utilize the glucose as well.
At this point, you might consider seeing a doctor if you have these issues.
More importantly, please make important lifestyle changes to help promote healthy blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity.
Please don’t ignore this topic or passively listen. Take action. You don’t have to make dramatic changes or take drugs to have healthy blood sugar levels.
