Signs of High Blood Sugar: Stop It Before Diabetes Takes Over
Some statistics show that men over 50 years old are extremely prone to erectile dysfunction. In fact, half of them suffer from the condition. A healthy erection requires healthy nerves and blood flow, as well as the right balance of hormones. Now, without getting too scientific, let’s just say that in order to get an erection, your body has to fulfill a number of hydraulic processes and events. The result is your penis is filled with blood, and you need even more processes to keep the blood trapped inside the penis. All of that is impossible with high blood sugar levels.
People with diabetes are known to be irritable (in some ways, like women with PMS). I don’t want to stereotype, but that’s the comparison even women use. The biological reasons for the mood swings are not well documented and understood, although there have been several theories to explain it. But people living with someone with diabetes are well aware of the mood changes and irritability.
What can you do?
All of the signs of high blood sugar have one goal in common: to signal you that you should start making changes in your lifestyle. Ignore the signs at your own peril; in the long run, high blood sugar levels cause permanent damage to your body, and it’s up to you to stop it.
They say the best way to cure a disease is to prevent it. If you notice the signs of high blood sugar, it might be time to make one of the following lifestyle changes:
- Start exercising regularly, two or three times per week.
- Control your carb intake (as I said, chocolate is not the only reason for high blood sugar).
- Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated at all times.
- Look for foods with a low glycemic index. Now might be the time to look at labels!
- Increase your fiber intake to promote healthy digestion.
- Last, but not least, control your stress levels. Stress eating is one of the biggest causes of high blood sugar.
