For patients with diabetes, their blood sugar levels are a daily concern. But the rest of us rarely (or ever) even consider it. That might be a mistake.
Your blood sugar levels can consistently run on the high side, even if you aren’t diabetic. The problem with this is that over time, high blood sugar can lead to insulin resistance, which can lead to diabetes. Over time, hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) can also damage your nerves, organs, and blood vessels.
