Signs of Uncontrolled Blood Sugar: Things to Watch Out for


7.You Have Stomach Trouble

Diabetes also damages the nerve that helps your stomach empty and move food smoothly through your digestive tract. When your stomach can’t empty quickly enough, a condition called gastroparesis, you may deal with unpleasant abdominal problems like nausea, vomiting, bloating, heartburn, or feelings of fullness right after you start to eat or a long time afterwards. Gastroparesis also can make it harder to control your diabetes.

8.You’re Losing Your Sight

High blood sugar and high blood pressure both can damage the sensitive structures in your eyes and threaten your vision. Diabetic retinopathy — caused by damage to the blood vessels in the eye — is one of the biggest cause of blindness in adults. Blurred vision, spots, lines, or flashing lights are signs of a retinal bleed, a medical emergency. Get your eyes checked now, before your vision has a chance to deteriorate.
