Are you concerned about your health? Have you been feeling uncomfortable in your physiology? Most people have some health needs to keep an eye on, and this list is a good one to have up your sleeve, so to speak, for keeping an eye on your general health and well-being. It will serve you in being aware of the signs, symptoms, and dangers of high blood sugar. In the pursuit of health and longevity, take the time to review this list. It goes into depth about what to look for and causes of each symptom.
Many of the symptoms of high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) are related. For instance, the connection between increased thirst, and increased urination are blatantly apparent. But most of the symptoms are connected in a way that makes sense, even if not obvious at first. Be sure to have your blood sugar level checked if these symptoms are apparent in you, to be sure there is not another culprit (cause). Here are 10 warning signs of hyperglycemia:
1. Increased Thirst
Polydipsia, or excessive thirst, is a warning sign that is beneficial to heed and respond to. The increased or excessive thirst, in this instance, is caused by dehydration, which is caused by the high blood sugar level.
A high blood sugar level will cause dehydration because the excessive sugar in the blood causes the kidneys to pull water out of your bloodstream due to osmotic pressure. Drinking more water can help your body flush itself of excess glucose (sugar) to regain homeostasis (equilibrium). It generally is a good idea to listen to your body and provide to it what it is asking for, when possible.
