What Is Hyperglycemia?(High blood sugar)


Hyperglycemia may be described as an excess of sugar (glucose) in the blood. Your endocrine system regulates the amount of sugar that is stored and used for energy. It is important in brain cell function, and energy levels.

Since the sugar that you consume in your diet is either used or stored, certain conditions and disorders may cause you to have difficulty processing and storing blood glucose, resulting in hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia.

One hormone that is important to the normal storing and processing of sugar is insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is made in the pancreas that is responsible for maintaining "normal" blood sugar levels. If you have a problem with your pancreas, then you may have increased blood sugar levels.

Normal blood Glucose (sugar) levels are 60-110 mg/dL. Normal values may vary from laboratory to laboratory. Levels higher than these might indicate hyperglycemia.

Signs of high Blood Sugar 


1.Fatigue


Feeling tired may be the most common early sign of high blood sugar, Dr. Hatipoglu says. It’s also one that can occur, to a mild degree, with even the mild and normal blood sugar fluctuations that happen in people without diabetes (or with prediabetes) when they consume a large amount of simple carbs, like sugar, she says.

Of course, tiredness is a pretty nonspecific symptom (and can even be a sign of low blood sugar, as Dr. Adimoolam points out). If you notice fatigue regularly occurring right after you eat, though—especially a carb-heavy meal—it may have to do with rising blood sugar levels. “People will say, ‘I want to nap after lunch,’ or ‘I just cannot open my eyelids after dinner,’ often after eating something like a lot of pasta or potatoes or sweets,” Dr. Hatipoglu says. To be clear, there’s nothing wrong with eating these foods. But if you notice that they always affect you in a very specific way that you find troubling, like always making you incredibly sleepy, it’s a sign you may want to talk to a medical professional.

2. Increased thirst


The frequent urination that is necessary to remove excess sugar from the blood can result in the body losing additional water. Over time, this can cause dehydration and lead to a person feeling more thirsty than usual.

3.Headache


Headaches are not the only sign of diabetes and they can mean a lot of different things which may not be as serious as diabetes. However, if you experience them often with the other symptoms, it might be a sign of high blood sugar levels. This is when it is advisable to visit a doctor.

4.Change in skin


High blood sugar levels can affect your skin as well. You may notice change in skin colour and cause thick areas of skin. If you are a diabetic you need to control blood sugar levels. It can also cause dryness, itchiness, discolouration or blisters. If you notice change in your skin then you must consult your doctor.

5.Blurred vision


High blood sugar can seriously harm your eye health over time. One area where small blood vessels get damaged is in the retina, the light-sensitive portion of the back of the eye. In the short term, blood sugar spikes can cause blurry vision, at least temporarily; once sugar levels are closer to normal, vision improves. But in later stages, abnormal vessels can appear, obstructing central and peripheral vision. The macula, the center part of the eye responsible for detailed vision, can swell, too, causing vision loss.
