Tell Tales Signs Your Blood Sugar Levels Are Too High

High blood sugar levels can be dangerous. 

When your body mechanics are off, and you feel as though you need a good grease and oil change, a tyre or two pumped up, and your spark plugs could do with replacing, it is clearly a sign that something is not right. Often, feeling deflated or rundown is a signal from our body that it’s time to book in for service and re-evaluate oneself. Diet and exercise are usually a good place to start.

Diabetes is a word thrown around a lot nowadays. Potential change in our eating habits and convenience lifestyles could be a lead factor in the increase of this serious condition.

Long before someone is found to have diabetes, however, their body will exude signs of high blood sugar levels. By taking note of your body’s warning system, we can avoid some irreparable damage to our bodies.

What is high blood sugar levels?

Elevated sugar levels are commonly a result of too much glucose intake. Glucose is a nutrient that we can’t do without and it is dispersed to each cell in the body. However, too much glucose for too long a time can cause severe damage to your kidneys, nerves, blood vessels and eyes. Processed and artificial foods are contributors to increased glucose intake.

Signs that your blood sugar levels are high

Some common symptoms associated with high blood sugar that you should keep an eye out for, are:

  • The need for urinating often and during the night
  • Having trouble concentrating
  • Feeling fatigued or tired all the time
  • Impaired or blurred vision
  • A dry mouth and increased thirst
  • Slower healing of wounds and abrasions
  • A repeat of infections
  • Stomach problems
  • You’re hungry often
  • Increased abdominal/belly fat and weight gain
  • Impotence
  • Nerve problems
  • Dry and itchy skin

If blood sugar is of a concern to you, keep an eye out for foods with lower Glycaemic Index (GI) levels. The lower the GI, the less glucose contained within the food.

Some of the basic foods that you should remove from your diet to avoid high blood sugar are white bread, rice cakes and baked potatoes. Avoiding fizzy flavoured soft drinks and processed sweets is also a must.

Enjoy a healthy diet containing low sugar foods. Three foods that are particularly useful are walnuts (also great for reproductive health in men and heart health), broccoli to help repair damage to blood vessels, and eggs.

Watching what you eat and keeping tabs on your body’s mechanics is vital for recognising potential signs of high blood sugar levels. With convenience at the forefront of our modern world, it is easy to get swept up in foods packed with high levels of sugar and glucose. When your body is talking to you, be sure to listen and take a much-needed break, and that includes your diet as well.

From a happy customer:

Hey there,
Last week, my diagnosis became official – I have diabetes. The reason why I initially suspected I had diabetes, and the reason why I went to my doctor, has a lot to do with Bondi Beach Tea page. In the last few months, I have noticed a couple of dry skin patches on my arm, I felt like I was a bit more hungry than usual and the last straw that broke the camel’s back, so to speak, was a tiny cut on my finger that took way longer to heal than I was used to. Since diabetes runs in my family, I was doing some light reading on it a few months ago just out of curiosity and I bookmarked your site back then. I vaguely remembered reading about these symptoms in one of your articles so I went back to your site, found your https://www.bondibeachtea.com.au/blogs/detox-tea-and-weight-loss-tips-australia/tell-tales-signs-your-blood-sugar-levels-are-too-high article and connected the dots. The reason I’m writing you is to thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting out such a great resource that resonated with me and made me save it. Without you, I would have probably gone undiagnosed for who knows how much longer until more serious symptoms started to show up.

After reading all that I could about high blood sugar symptoms on Bondi Beach Tea page, I turned to a couple of more sites to double check everything and I thought I’d send you another great one https://www.thediabetescouncil.com/what-a-high-blood-sugar-feels-like/ in case you want to share it with others that may be in a similar situation like me. Again, I cannot express my gratitude enough and I just had to reach out and thank you directly like this.

Warmest regards,

Megan
