What are Elevated blood sugar levels? Elevated sugar levels can mean many things. Diabetes is the main one but other factors such as just eating and such can cause this. Diabetes is a very, very serious disease/condition that affects over 30 million people in the United States alone.
This disease is fueled by large the large amount of sweet packed foods and the defective diabetes gene that is being passed on by the long lives of diabetics. Diabetes is a condition where the pancreas is failing to produce enough or any of the chemical/hormone called insulin. Insulin is a very, very important hormone/chemical to the body. It is used by the body systems to transform the sugar/glucose in the blood into fuel that the body’s cells can use. Without the proper insulin amounts in the blood the cells get no food to run on and the sugar levels start to rise to dangerous levels.
The sugar levels reach a level around 140 mg/dl the body starts to suffer damage. The serious damage that occurs is permanent and will not be reversed. The damage generally occurs to the eye, heart, kidney, and nerves. The main foot nerves get the most damage and usually lose their feeling over the years. But this can be mostly avoided if the diabetic can use certain things to rid itself of the excess sugar. So how can you lower elevated blood sugar levels?
