7 Signs Your Blood Sugar Is Out Of Control

Thinkstock A Silent Danger When you have type 2 diabetes, your main goal should be controlling your blood sugar. Without adequate blood sugar control, your risk for serious health complications — stroke, heart disease, nerve damage, blindness, and more — skyrockets. But here’s the tricky part: You might not even know your blood sugar levels are out of control. “Not everyone will have the same symptoms, and some individuals have no symptoms at all,” says Lori Zanini, RD, CDE, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Because proper blood sugar maintenance is vital to your overall health with type 2 diabetes, you need to take action if you think your levels may be out of control. “Since symptoms of uncontrolled diabetes may not appear until prolonged hyperglycemia has been present, it’s important for individuals with diabetes to monitor their glucose and adjust their medication based on the results,” explains Mary Ann Emanuele, MD, an endocrinologist, professor, and medical director of Inpatient Diabetes at Loyola University Medical Center in Mayfield, Illinois.

    Can symptoms come and go?

Her symptoms of neuropathy and thrush and dry itchy skin, tired, nausea, headache all seem to come and then go away and then a new symptom uccurs. I know she needs to see a dr. I'm almost positive she is diabetic I'm really just hoping something will bring her to realize she needs to see a dr before its to late. How does this disease usually progress without treatment? Nothing is ever enough to bring her to a dr. Even esophogeal thrush finally went away on its own.

The symptoms you mention are sometimes experienced by people with diabetes, but are not signs that she has it. Many undiagnosed diabetics have no symptoms at all and are very surprised when a standard blood test shows high blood glucose numbers.
    I appreciate your concern for your friend, but if she won't go to the doctor, there's really nothing you can do to force her.
