Concentration of blood sugar is the amount of sugar present in the blood of a human. Blood sugar in the human body is regulated as a part of metabolic homeostasis.
Glucose(sugar) is the primary source of energy for the human body. The glucose is transported from the intestines or liver to body cells via the bloodstream. Usually sugar levels are lowest in the morning and rise after meals. High level of glucose is called hyperglycemia and it can be dangerous this medical condition.
Basic symptoms of high blood sugar are:
1.Excessive thirst. This condition is known as Polydipsia. This is the body’s attempt to rehydrate itself. Thirst signals in the brain are triggered by osmorecetors, specialized cells in the hypothalamus that detect the level of plasma osmolality-the level od dehydration of the blood and creat the urge to drink more fluids when a person is dehydrated.
Many people are wrong reaching for a sode when they are thirsty because most sodas contain both some form of sugar and caffeine. This can raise the blood glucose level even higher.
2.Excessive hunger. This condition it isn’t really caused so much by a high blood glucose level as by a low insulin level. The low insulin level can be either an absolute shortage of insulin. In this case, the amount of insulin in the blood is insufficient to transport glucose molecules from the bloodstream into the cells, where they can be fuel for cellular processes. The cells aren’t able to access to glucose and they send hunger signals to the brain’s hypothalamus to trigger the sensation of hunger. The cells don’t know they have enough sugar. The sugar they need exists in abundance nearby in the bloodstream, but because of the deficiency of insulin this makes it inaccessible. This condition is worse when a person responds by eating a lot.
3. Frequent urination is the third basic symptom where you pass urine more often than usual and it can occur with a sudden ,compelling urge to urinate along with bladder discomfort. The kidneys are forced to work to filter and absorb the excess sugar. If the kidneys can’t keep up with this , the excess sugar is excreted into your urine and dragging fluids from your body.
If you have these symptoms you should consult with your doctor.
