High sugar levels in the blood, also known as hyperglycemia, could affect people with problems such as diabetes. It has two kinds, fasting hyperglycemia which is a sugar level higher than 130 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter) after not eating or drinking for at least 8 hours, and after-meal hyperglycemia, that’s with blood sugar higher than 180 mg/dL 2 hours after eating.
A diabetic’s blood sugar will rise if they forget to take their insulin shot, consume too many grams of carbohydrates, become idle and inactive, or are under stress. And many seniors with diabetes need thorough home care services in Broward County, Florida to monitor their blood sugar levels.

- A blood sugar of more than 180 mg/dL
- Blurred vision
- Trouble concentrating
