14 Signs That Your Blood Sugar Is Very High

The level of sugar in the blood indicates the amount of glucose in the blood. Glucose is the main source of energy for most of the cells in the body. It’s ingested through food and then delivered to the cells. Hyperglycemia or high blood sugar can be caused by two factors and so they’re two different types. One is type 1 diabetes which caused by lack of glucose and type 2 diabetes or a condition during which the body’s unable to use glucose properly.

If the condition is left untreated for a longer period of time, it may cause serious damage to certain body parts like the kidneys, nerves, eyes, and blood vessels.
