Kidney disease TOP 10


Type 2 diabetes often develops malignantly and only appears when blood sugar levels are consistently very high.

When this happens, it can trigger a host of troubling symptoms. Type 2 diabetes is deceptively benign at first because the faulty mechanism causes it to cause a disorder. The mechanism involved is high blood sugar, a constant threat to diabetics. And blood sugar is the main type of sugar in the blood. People with diabetes are prone to unstable blood sugar levels due to low production of insulin, the hormone that controls the substance. The result is unrestricted blood sugar.

High blood sugar is responsible for the symptoms of type 2 diabetes because it interferes with bodily processes.

As Dr Ephthemia Kara, consultant endocrinologist at Doctors Clinic at the Harley Street Clinic, explained to the UK’s ‘Express’ website, the higher the blood sugar, the greater the extent of the symptoms.

According to Dr. Kara, untreated high blood sugar can lead to severe dehydration and a buildup of toxic acids (ketones) in the blood and urine (ketoacidosis).

Other late warning signs include:

1- bad breath

2- Nausea

3- vomit

4- Abdominal pain

5- Increased respiratory rate (i.e. very rapid breathing) and feeling short of breath

6- dry mouth

7- Weakness

8- Confusion and bewilderment

9- Coma

10- Sleep disorders

According to Dr. Kara, high glucose levels, increased frequency and amount of urination, and feeling thirsty are symptoms of high blood sugar that can have side effects.

“These symptoms can disrupt sleep due to nighttime urination, nighttime thirst and hunger,” she explained.

Additionally, high blood sugar can lead to symptoms of irritability, insomnia, unsteadiness, and feelings of extreme heat.

“These symptoms can disrupt sleep and lead to waking up in the middle of the night with sweats and chills,” Dr. Kara noted.

Dr. Kara said patients with diabetes and high blood sugar can also develop restless legs syndrome (RLS).

This is a condition in which the patient feels the need to move their legs while sitting or lying down, which can prevent them from falling asleep.

Poor diabetes control with chronically high blood sugar levels can lead to diabetic neuropathy.

Diabetic neuropathy refers to nerve damage in the feet or legs that interferes with sensation and can cause symptoms of pain, tingling, numbness, and burning.

“These symptoms, in turn, can make it difficult to sleep and can lead to waking up in the middle of the night with these uncomfortable feelings,” Dr. Kara explained.
