Side Effects of High Blood Sugar on Testosterone

High Blood Sugar is a Common Problem that Many People Deal With

High Blood Sugar is usually associated with the development of Diabetes type I or II and can lead to severe health problems down the road if not treated appropriately. 

A normal fasted blood glucose level should be below 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl) , but no lower than 60 mg/dl. A high fasted blood glucose is usually 200 (mg/dL) to 350 mg/dL.

The main high blood sugar symptoms are:

  • Increased thirst.
  • Increased urination.
  • Weight loss.
  • Fatigue.
  • Increased appetite.

If you blood sugar is consistently high and your fasting blood glucose is over 350mg/dl you may experience symptoms of moderate to severe high blood sugar which include:

  • Blurred vision.
  • Extreme thirst.
  • Lightheadedness.
  • Flushed, hot, dry skin.
  • Restlessness, drowsiness, or difficulty waking up.

When your body produces little or no insulin you also may have:

  • Rapid, deep breathing.
  • A fast heart rate and a weak pulse.
  • A strong, fruity breath odor.
  • Loss of appetite, belly pain, and/or vomiting.

If your blood sugar levels continue to rise, you may become confused and lethargic. You also may become unconscious if your blood sugar levels are very high.
