Blood sugar levels indicate the amount of glucose in the blood, which is the major source of energy for most cells of the body. Glucose is ingested through food and is then distributed to all cells throughout the body.
High blood sugar medically referred to as hyperglycemia, can be caused by two things. Therefore, there are two different types: type 2 diabetes ( a condition in which the body cannot use glucose properly) and type 1 diabetes ( a condition caused by insufficient amounts of glucose).
If this condition persists for a longer period, it may damage certain body parts permanently, such as the kidneys, blood vessels, nerves, and the eyes.
There are many different factors which contribute to increasing sugar in diabetics. Among them are:
- Overeating, such as snacking between meals
- Certain medicines, like steroid medication
- Over-treating an episode of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
- Missing a dose or taking a wrong dose of the diabetes medication
- Lack of exercise
- An illness, like a common cold
