Obvious signs of excessively high sugar are the following unreasonable symptoms and manifestations: dry mouth, unquenchable thirst. Drowsiness and a sharp breakdown. Diarrhea and frequent urination. By the way, very clearly very high blood sugar can be determined by urine, it has a sweet taste. Also, dry hands and feet may indicate sugar. Another symptom is vision problems, like a film on the eyes. But this is all just high-quality stmptomatics and with really strong excess (above 10-11). It is definitely not only harmful, but also dangerous not to control the sugar level with such fears.
We have one life. And if the diagnosis is made, then it is imperative to adhere to all the doctor's recommendations. My grandmother has type 2 diabetes. It's very good that he is not insulin dependent. She adheres to a diet. Developed specifically for her, with a doctor. Takes Oligim natural pills. The composition contains inulin and gimnema extract. This drug suited her, there are no side effects. It helps maintain normal blood sugar and pancreas function.
The pancreas is there, it produces insulin, but not in full, the question is why? I think the wrong signal is coming in, I suggest implanting electrodes for stimulation either from a special device, or directly from the brain (this is no longer a problem in this development of medicine).
experiment on yourself, but without fanaticism: drink a couple of cups of tea with 10 tablespoons of sugar - remember your condition. The next day you eat as much garlic as you can (garlic lowers blood sugar) - and also track your condition. Maybe you can feel it yourself.
Only if through the manifestation of Symptoms, otherwise not how ...
And this can be both in healthy people and in people with diabetes, only in people with diabetes it is more pronounced and the symptoms are quantitatively greater ...
STRANGE, STRANGE FEELING. IS IT NOT HARMFUL THAT I DO NOT DRINK TABLETS AND DO NOT LOOK AT THE LEVEL OF SUGAR? ТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТТT
Based on the question itself, it becomes clear that a person has type 2 diabetes (drinks pills). Such patients may take their illness more lightly. Since the pancreas still produces insulin. Taking tableted antihyperglycemic drugs can take place against the background of the lack of daily blood sugar control. Having no opportunity or indications to use insulin in therapy, such a patient cannot independently calculate the dose of insulin and use it, depending on the analysis performed, by self-control. In diabetes centers, these patients are usually tested once a month with blood glucose measurements, and this is often enough. Some diabetic patients may feel general malaise, thirst, high blood pressure, the smell of acetone when urinating (the effects of ketocytosis), discoloration of urine, etc. General information about the assessment of their condition, such patients receive passing the diabetes school.
I would like to say that self-monitoring of blood sugar levels without using glucometers is a relic of the past. Such methods were used in medicine until the moment when self-monitoring devices became available. Now such an incomprehensible saving on test strips, rather the result of a disregard for one's health, fatalism, as the author of the previous answer aptly put it.
Quite a common situation among patients with diabetes mellitus, who do not care about their health. Thus, they actively shorten their lives. They may be fatalists.
