Symptoms Of High Blood Sugar

Topic Overview High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) is most often seen in people who have diabetes that isn't well controlled. The symptoms of high blood sugar can be mild, moderate, or severe. Mild high blood sugar If your blood sugar levels are consistently higher than your target range (usually 11 mmol/L to 20 mmol/L, and 11 mmol/L to 14 mmol/L in children), you may have mild symptoms of high blood sugar. You may urinate more than usual if you are drinking plenty of liquids. Some people who have diabetes may not notice any symptoms when their blood sugar level is in this range. The main symptoms of high blood sugar are: Increased thirst. Increased urination. Weight loss. Fatigue. Increased appetite. Young children are unable to recognize symptoms of high blood sugar. Parents need to do a home blood sugar test on their child whenever they suspect high blood sugar. If you don't drink enough liquids to replace the fluids lost from high blood sugar levels, you can become dehydrated. Young children can become dehydrated very quickly. Symptoms of dehydration include: A dry mouth and increased thirst. Warm, dry skin. Moderate to severe high blood sugar If your blood sugar levels are consis Continue reading >>

    Keto diet while nursing

    My SIL is doing the Ketogenic Diet (low carb/high fat) and is having great results. I was overweight before getting pregnant, and now have even more to lose. I'm thinking of trying the diet but am wondering how it will affect breastfeeding. I've heard it might not be good for baby if your body is in ketosis, but I'm having a hard time finding solid info either way. Anyone have any experience with this?

    I'm doing something similar but a breastfeeding friendly variation... Basically Atkins 20 is not safe for breastfeeding but Atkins 40 is. I think it's important while nursing to eat balanced so I still eat the recommended servings of fruit a day and some whole grains. I try for lower sugar fruits like berries. For grains I do oats and then a small bowl of kashi go lean cereal (the cinnamon crunch kind is amazing)
    So basically I try and eat balanced for the sake of my milk and just reduce my net carbs while trying to eat as much protein and fiber as possible.
    As for your question is keto specifically safe? I don't personally think so.
    I'm not counting carbs and I'm eating a good amount of fat (meats, eggs, cheese)

    I've lost 7lbs the past 9 days and haven't exercised much during that time (baby is teething I'm tired)

  • Signs And Symptoms Of Hyperglycemia

    The basic defect in all patients with diabetes is the decreased ability of insulin to induce cells of the body to remove glucose (sugar) molecules from the blood. Whether this decreased insulin activity is due to a decreased amount of insulin produced (type 1 diabetes), or from the insensitivity of the cells to a normal amount of insulin (type 2 diabetes), the results are the same: blood glucose levels which are too high. This is termed "hypergly ...
