While sugar has a bad reputation among healthy living circles, it is still very important for us. It is important because it provides us with much of the energy that we need, and it is also found naturally occurring in addition to the processed sugars that we so often have in the kitchen.
Our bodies produce a hormone known as insulin that allows us to process these sugars. In some people, though, there is a resistance to insulin, or their bodies don’t produce enough of the compound.
This is a condition known as diabetes, and here are a few of the warning signs that you might have the condition.
Warning Sign #1: Blurred Vision
It is not uncommon for people to find that their vision becomes blurred over time. This is because they gradually lose the ability to focus. Fortunately, though, we have equipment and procedures that are usually able to correct the problem. If your blurred vision has come on suddenly, however, it might be a different kind of treatment you need.
Having too much sugar in the blood can cause damage to the eyes, thus affecting our ability to focus. It can occur in both eyes or only in one eye. If left untreated, it can lead to permanent loss of vision, so it should be treated as urgent.
