The dangers of high blood sugar.

  1. Body dehydration: Due to high blood sugar, water and glucose will be excreted from the body. This can lead to problems such as dehydration and further cause “hyperosmotic coma”.
  2. Fatigue: If the relationship between insulin and other components in the body is not proportional to the sugar in the blood, it will cause the sugar in the blood to be unable to be converted and consumed. Therefore, sugar will enter the urinary system and be excreted. At this stage, the patient will feel weak and tired and so on.
  3. Reduced resistance: high blood sugar will cause the ingested glucose to be unable to be absorbed by the body, and will be lost from the urinary system and other channels. The body can only rely on fat and protein for energy, but the reduction of fat and protein can lead to low immunity. As a result, patients are prone to colds and colds.
  4. Metabolic disorders: Metabolic disorders are one of the common hazards, which will induce related complications through a combination of various factors. Common complications include ketoacidosis and hyperosmolar coma, which have damaging effects on the patient’s brain.
  5. Vascular and chronic nervous system symptoms: Hyperglycemia will affect the blood vessels and nerves of patients, thereby causing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetic nephropathy, peripheral neuropathy, etc.
  6. Water and electrolyte disorders: Considering that glucose needs to be dissolved in water to be excreted through urine, high blood sugar will cause a large amount of water to be excreted from the body. Therefore, the higher the sugar content in the urine, the more water is excreted. In the long run, it will cause problems such as water and electrolyte metabolism disorders.
  7. β-cell failure: Hyperglycemia can stimulate islet β-cells, leading to impaired β-cell function, which further leads to decreased insulin secretion.
  8. Increased osmotic pressure: The higher the blood sugar, the higher the osmotic pressure of extracellular fluid. Stimulates intracellular fluid flow to the outside of the cell, resulting in severe intracellular water loss. If the brain cells are in a state of dehydration, it will cause problems such as brain dysfunction.
  9. Blindness: Too high blood sugar concentration can damage the nerves of the eye, resulting in decreased eye vision or blindness.
  10. Body edema: Due to the intake of a large amount of sugar, it will affect the body’s metabolism and cause body edema.
    In view of the fact that most of the triggers of high blood sugar are related to diet, including long-term consumption of foods high in sugar, such as fruit juice, carbonated drinks, sugar and other foods. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the intake of foods such as sugar in life. Exercise regularly and eat more high-fiber foods, etc. If you need to take medicine to control blood sugar levels, you can take it under the doctor’s order.
