What are the consequences of having a blood sugar level over 300?


Deeksha Khare says

The consequences of high blood sugar are really serious when sustained over a long period time. These consequences, stemming from the accumulation of excess glucose in the blood stream, clogging the fine capillaries of the eyes (causing retinopathy), the kidneys (causing nephropathy), and the extremities, leading to reduced circulation into fingers and toes, which may then necessitate amputation. In the short run, high blood glucose, over 300 mg/dL, can cause type one diabetic to feel listless and sluggish, and to need to urinate frequently.
