The sugar levels in the blood indicate the amount of glucose in the blood, which is the leading energy source for most body cells.
High blood sugar or hyperglycemia can be caused by two factors, and can thus be of two types: type 1 diabetes, which is a result of the lack of glucose, and type 2 diabetes, which is caused by the inability of the body to properly use glucose.
If diabetes is left untreated, it severely damages overall health, as it affects the nerves, kidneys, blood vessels, and eyes.
These are the most common ways in which the body signals that your blood sugar levels are elevated:
Itchy and dry skin
Excessive weight gain
Inability to focus
Slow healing of wounds and cuts
Frequent urination or nighttime urination
