Do you struggle with high blood sugar? There are signs your body gives you to let you know that your glucose level is too high. These signs can help you start to tailor your diet so you don’t come across any complications that type 2 diabetes can bring.
1. Increased Thirst And Urination
Your kidneys play a vital role in regulating your blood sugar levels. However, when your kidneys can’t keep up, this can make you dehydrated. If you notice that you are thirsty often and urinating more frequently, your blood sugar may be getting high.
Illness and disease are exhausting, and that goes the same for having high blood sugar. When your blood sugar is too high, it makes your blood move more slowly like sludge in a pipe. When our blood isn’t traveling the way it is supposed to, it causes the rest of your body to not receive the oxygen and nutrients that it needs. This can also cause inflammation which can lead to fatigue.
High blood sugar can cause your digestion to slow down. It can also cause other issues in your gastrointestinal tract which can lead to nausea or vomiting. If you find that you are feeling nauseous for seemingly no reason, it may be your blood sugar.
4. Fruity Breath Odor
Bad breath can be a sign of stinky food, or it could indicate a health condition like diabetes. When diabetes isn’t managed, the body doesn’t make enough insulin to break down the glucose in your blood. This causes the body’s cells to not receive enough glucose to use as energy. So what does it use instead? Fat.
While it might seem like a good thing that your body is using fat, this process of breaking down fat to use as energy releases a by-product called ketones. Ketone bodies include acetone which is the same substance used in nail polish remover and a fruity smell distinguishes this issue.
Try CBD Oil
CBD has shown in studies to reduce the level of resistin in your body which is a hormone that causes you to become resistant to insulin. By taking CBD oil, you may be able to help control your blood sugar levels. Be sure to also change your diet because medication alone is rarely the best solution.
