Too much sugar in the blood can cause serious health problems. This condition, otherwise known as hyperglycemia, can damage blood vessels that carry blood to the body’s vital organs. When this happens, it increases the risk of debilitating diseases such as stroke, high blood pressure, kidney issues, and many more.
Blood sugar levels are considered high when they go above the target range for the individual according to a 2020 Single Care article, such as:
130 mg/dL before a meal or 180 mg/dL within one to two hours after a meal. Most individuals will not begin to experience high blood sugar levels until the levels are at 250 mg/dL or higher.
