It can be important to recognise the difference between low and high blood sugar symptoms. Being able to spot when you’re high or low and sugar can help you to manage your diabetes.

Where possible, it’s best to check with your blood glucose meter, whether you are high or low, before taking any remedial action.

The symptoms of high blood sugar can include:

– Increased thirst
– Dry mouth
– Increased hunger
– Frequent need to urinate
– Feeling lethargic
– Blurred vision

If blood sugar is regularly high you may get recurrent episodes of thrush.
