Normal blood sugar level range between 80 and 120. A dangerous blood sugar level can mean it is too high or to low. Creative Health Institute does not treat or diagnosis diabetes. After you have been diagnosed diabetes type 2, we can teach you how to work on reversing it and bringing your blood sugar levels into the normal range, usually within 21 days. Whether you have diabetes or not you should consult your doctor if you are experiencing symptoms of abnormal blood sugar, or feel that its not within the normal range. So consult with your doctor, then you can make an informed decision as to where to go from there.
Some symptoms of abnormal blood sugar levels
- The first symptom of diabetes is often excessive thirst (unrelated to exercise, hot weather, or short-term illness)
- Excessive hunger (you know you’ve eaten “enough” but are still hungry all the time)
- Frequent urination (often noticed because you must wake up repeatedly during the night)
- Tiredness and fatigue (possibly severe enough to make you fall asleep unexpectedly after meals), one of the most common symptoms of diabetes.
While many of the signs and symptoms of diabetes can also be related to other causes, testing for diabetes is very easy, and the constant/regular presence of one or more of these symptoms over an extended period of time should be checked by a physician.
If diabetes is suspected, tested for, and diagnosed when those symptoms first start appearing, other more serious symptoms of advanced diabetes can often be prevented or have their onset significantly delayed through diet, exercise and proper blood sugar management.
However, often the ‘minor’ symptoms of diabetes go unrecognized, and physical and neurological problems may arise, resulting in some of the following symptoms:
- Blurred vision(diabetes can lead to macular degeneration and eventual blindness)
- Numbness and/or tingling in the hands and feet. (symptoms of diabetes which causes nerve damage in the extremities)
- Slow healing of minor scratches and wounds (diabetes often leads to impaired immune system function)
- Recurrent or hard-to-treat yeast infections in women (another sign of impaired immune function)
- Dry or itchy skin (peripheral neuropathy also affects circulation and proper sweat gland function)
If you or someone you know are experiencing these symptoms an appointment with a physician should be made as soon as possible.
