What are the Warning Signs of High Glucose?

Having a high blood sugar level (hyperglycemia) is not necessarily a symptom of diabetes. However, it can be a sign of prediabetes, a condition that could develop into diabetes.

Common warning signs that a person has a high sugar level include thirst, cotton mouth, frequent urination, blurry vision, weight loss, fatigue, itchy skin, and increased appetite.

Other symptoms may develop if a high sugar level persists for several hours. These warning signs include dizziness, heavy breathing, sudden weight loss, confusion, severe drowsiness, unconsciousness, even coma.

Left untreated, hyperglycemia can develop into what is known as a diabetic coma, also called ketoacidosis. This happens when the body lacks the insulin needed to process sugar into energy, so the body begins breaking down fats instead.

Ketoacidosis is a life-threatening ailment and immediate treatment is imperative. Warning signs include stomach pain, nausea, shortness of breath, and cotton mouth.
