Signs of Uncontrolled Blood Sugar: Things to Watch Out for


11.Cuts and Bruises Won’t Heal

If your blood sugar isn’t well controlled, you might find that cuts and bruises are slow to heal. Tending to injuries, however small, is important because it reduces the risk of infections in people with diabetes. Infections themselves can also worsen blood sugars, which makes it even harder for your immune system to fight off the infection.

12.Keep Control

Don’t panic about diabetes complications — try to avoid them by carefully following your doctor’s treatment plan. Take your medicine, eat a healthy diet, and exercise to keep your blood sugar levels in check. Use your meter to test your blood sugar so you know that it’s staying in the recommended range. An A1C test at least twice a year will give you a good snapshot of your blood sugar control over time.
