Diabetes Symptom Information

Do you feel you may have a diabetes symptom or two? These days many people maintain an inflammatory animal-based high carb diet and suffer from insulin resistance and dysglycemia.

This creates a cascade of inflammation throughout the body, over time leading to pre-diabetic symptoms and eventually full blown disease. 

The condition really means too much glucose is floating around in the blood instead of being stored in cells. Normally the body controls its sugar levels by moving glucose out of the bloodstream and burning it for fuel.

When the levels of sugar in the blood get too over-saturated the body can’t burn all the glucose as fuel and has to make it into fat.

Glucose Is A Double-Edged Sword

diabetes symptom information

Your body needs glucose to live. Every cell in your body needs glucose to stay alive: it is the basic fuel source that you use to function. Without proper amounts of glucose all kinds of bad things start happening to you. 

Diabetes symptoms can be very serious including comas, ulcers, nerve damage, amputation, and death. Sugar issues can also be sneaky and subtle; they can evolve slowly over years and be seen as just a "normal" sign of aging. Someone can also be pre-diabetic and have similar symptoms. Below are signs of too much sugar or not enough.

Stages Of Diabetes Syndrome:


diabetes symptom

Healthy fasting glucose (85-99)  Lack of food or eating does not change symptoms or mood.


Fasting glucose (127 and over) – This is a dangerous place to live. Complications include cell death, vision loss, severe brain fog, loss of sexual function, amputation, heart attacks, and death.

Insulin Resistance

Fasting glucose of (100-126) – This person will constantly crave food. Eating will only temporarily satisfy hunger and they will want to eat again very quickly.

  • This person always wants dessert after meals and snacks all day long

They can have horrible cravings but eating does not relieve them.  They are always tired and feel like their memory isn't working or they have brain fog.

After they eat the brain fog gets worse, they become sleepy, and with severe reactions sometimes pass out.

No matter what kind of diet they try it doesn't seem to work and they are usually carrying extra weight around the waist.

In women it can cause growth of excess hair on the chin and face while going bald on the head. In men it will cause development of breasts and fat on the hips. People with insulin resistance are often constantly thirsty and pee excessively.

Reactive Hypoglycemia (both insulin resistant & hypoglycemic)

Fasting glucose (under 84-over 100)  This person’s blood sugar wildly swings throughout the day. A person with reactive hypoglycemia will have symptoms of both insulin resistance and functional hypoglycemia. 

Functional Hypoglycemia

Fasting glucose (65-85)  People who live in this range usually get moody, jittery, and may suffer anxiety and headaches until they eat. Eating calms and stabilizes symptoms.

Usually the functional hypoglycemic feels sluggish in the morning and can’t function without stimulants like coffee. He/she finds it impossible to sleep an entire night and sometimes wakes up at 2-3 a.m. with feelings of anxiety, terror, and night sweats.

True Hypoglycemia

Fasting glucose (65 and below) – This is a very dangerous state and blood sugar must be raised immediately to a normal level. Diabetics who take too much insulin can send themselves into a true hypoglycemic state and it can be fatal.
