9 Warning Signs That Your Blood Sugar Levels Are Out Of Control

Maintaining the right level of blood sugar or glucose is key to living a healthy, happy life. When we experience blood sugar peaks and “crashes”, the effects can be devastating to your mood, and to your body as well; while there are many risk factors that contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes, elevated blood sugar levels can increase your risk. How Blood Sugar Levels Work Your blood sugar levels can rise and fall in accordance with the sugar content in the food you eat. When you eat something high in sugar, your blood sugar levels rise; your body responds to this by secreting insulin, a hormone which is created by the pancreas. Insulin works to lower you blood sugar levels and help cells throughout your body absorb glucose (sugar) for energy. When you go too long without any food or eat unhealthy foods that are too high in sugar and fat, or have health problems affecting your hormones, your blood sugar levels can become dangerously low. As this happens, your adrenal glands release adrenaline and cortisol in order to remedy the situation – this is why you feel cranky and moody when you haven’t eaten for a while.

    My son has also had "felt" high, but was really low, or "felt" low, but was really high. Thankfully, he's testing faithfully now that he's discovered that he really can't tell one way, or the other, very consistently.
    I'm sorry you're feeling so lousy when your sugars are looking so good. Have you looked into other reasons for feeling so bad? Something you ate not sit well with you? Coming down with an illness? Poor night's sleep maybe? Allergies to something?
    Do you keep a food diary? My son doesn't, but it's not a bad idea. Sometimes keeping some kind of journal of your meals, sugars, and sleep patterns, etc. could help your doctor (or you!) figure out what triggers a bad day for you. I understand being resistant to it. I'm suppose to keep a "headache diary" for my neurosurgeon, but I don't. I'm not having enough trouble to warrant it.

    To monitor your blood sugars is very important when you have diabetes. High bs causes symptoms that you do not have control. When my blood sugar was high I felt nauseous and ate everything in site. Now I eat healthy and my bs has been normal. Too many carbs can cause one not to feel well. Monitor bs often, probably once before each meal and at bed time. Then you will know how you diabetes is definitely doing.
