High Blood Glucose Levels
- May 01, 2023
High blood glucose happens when the body has too little insulin or when the body can’t use insulin properly. This is called hyperglycemia.
Symptoms May Include:
Additional hyperglycemia symptoms are dry mouth, blurred vision, headache, and fruity-smelling breath.
Reasons May Include:
Having too little blood sugar can make you feel weak, shaky, or jittery, while having too much blood sugar for a long time can cause problems with your eyes, kidneys, and blood flow. If you notice changes in your mood or feel confused, you should check your blood sugar, or have someone help you check it.
Not everyone living with diabetes experiences the same symptoms of hyperglycemia. In some people, the symptoms may not feel as pronounced, or the individual may not associate the symptoms to high blood glucose levels.
