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.
- 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.
- 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.
