Blood-glucose levels

  • Low blood-glucose levels:

This leads to hunger, food cravings, weakness, shakiness, fatigue and irritability. If
they reach a dangerously low level, you may collapse and fall into a coma.

  • High blood-glucose levels:

A continuous high blood-glucose level is hazardous as it promotes blood vessel
damage that leads to the following complications: blindness, kidney damage, heart
disease, poorly healing sores. It also results in difficulty in losing weight and
promotes a condition called insulin resistance. This directly increases your risk of
developing chronic diseases of lifestyle such as diabetes and heart disease.

  • Fluctuating blood-glucose levels:

Having blood glucose highs and lows (which so many of us do from poor eating
habits) results in mood swings, fatigue, poor concentration and reduced mental
abilities.
