High blood sugar or hyperglycemia is a common problem which can sometimes be difficult for the diabetics to control and reduce. Symptoms of high blood sugar levels significantly depend on how high blood sugar levels is – mild, moderate and intense.
Mild blood sugar:
If the blood sugar level is constantly between 200mg/dl to 350mg/dl, you’ll probably feel mild symptoms like:
- Increased thirst
- Increased need to urinate

- Increased appetite
Moderate and severe blood sugar:
If the blood sugar level is constantly above 350mg/dl, you’ll probably feel a little more intense symptoms like:
- Blurred vision
- Extreme thirst
- Hot and dry skin
- Fast and deep breathing
- Rapid heartbeat and weak pulse
If the sugar level for a longer period is constantly elevated, you may feel symptoms such as confusion, lethargy and mood swings.
