12 signs that you are eating too much sugar. Eliminating sugar has been a dietary goal for many people in the last two decades. As a child, you may remember that your parents told you no, that you can not eat sweets for breakfast and that Halloween was an incredible time because of all the sugar. But as we get older and learn about proper nutrition, we may come to realize that drinking sodas and eating a lot of chocolate is probably not good for our health.

12. Exhaustion. When your blood sugar levels are high, your body can not absorb glucose properly, which means that your cells are not receiving the fuel to give you energy.
11 frequent urination. High blood sugar levels prevent the kidneys from reabsorbing the fluid, which causes the body to equalize the concentration of glucose in the blood by dissolving it with the intracellular fluid. Essentially, this only makes you urinate a lot.
10. Always hungry. When glucose can not enter the cells, it prevents your body from receiving energy, as stated in number 12. Your body seeks the energy that causes a voracious appetite.
9. Insatiable thirst Because the body loses fluids when its blood sugar levels are too high, your body assumes that it is dehydrated. This can also lead to a dry mouth.
8. Dry skin. It is known that high levels of sugar in the blood cause dry skin for two different reasons. One is excessive urination and the other that damaged nerves can alter the sweat glands. The interrupted sweat glands have a negative effect on the pH balance of your skin, which leads to dry and scaly skin.
7. Weight loss. Your weight may fluctuate depending on your glucose levels, but when they are too high, you may experience rapid weight loss. Weight loss due to high levels of sugar can be traced back to the loss of fluid and the imbalance of your metabolism. If you notice that you are experiencing unusual weight loss and have not made any significant changes in your diet, you may want to control your blood sugar levels. You can also talk to a doctor or dietitian to find out how you can adjust your diet to improve your glucose levels.
6. Problems to focus. If your blood sugar level is too high and your body does not absorb the fuel at the correct speed, you will have trouble concentrating due to lack of energy. This also causes problems with memory and decision making.
5. Blurred vision. The dehydration symptom of high blood sugar level will begin to affect your vision over time. When you are dehydrated, the cells of your eyes begin to deform and dry, causing you to lose focus. If you think you are dehydrated, try to eliminate some sugar from your diet and be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Drink water as soon as you wake up, and continue drinking throughout the day. This will help keep you hydrated and also help to quench sugar cravings when you get them.
4. Slow healing This is another sign of diabetes. Vascular damage is a very dangerous side effect of a high blood sugar level, since it has a negative effect on blood circulation. Blood circulation is immensely important for healing, since tissues need nutrients to repair themselves.
3. Irritability. People with a high blood sugar tend to be more anxious, irritable and depressed due to an insignificant amount of glucose in their body.
2. Migraines. If your body can not absorb the glucose it needs to function, you may notice that along with dry eyes you have a migraine. When the blood sugar level is too high, brain cells also lack the energy they need, which can cause a painful headache.
1. Acne. Many people are really sensitive to an acute insulin intake that can trigger a hormonal imbalance, causing acne or rosacea. Rebellious skin is a good reason to take a look at your diet. If you already have sensitive skin and tend to eat a lot of sugar, you may be more prone to developing acne, so try to eliminate excess sugar from your diet.
