Hyperglycemia

Hyperglycemia

Hyperglycemia refers to unnaturally high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood. Depending on the volume of sugar in your blood, this can cause a range of symptoms that vary in severity. At Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, we boast a team of highly trained and qualified naturopaths who can recommend a variety of natural remedies for hyperglycemia.

We pride ourselves on listening to our patients and conducting comprehensive diagnostic tests. We also use a holistic and naturalistic approach to address underlying issues which might be causing or exacerbating your health issues. This allows us to formulate tailored hyperglycemia treatment plans that take your specific needs into account and maximise the results of treatment.

Causes of Hyperglycemia

There are several reasons why people develop hyperglycemia, but the most common cause is blood sugar irregularities. Affecting a significant number of people around the world, these irregularities can causes blood glucose levels to rise due to an insufficient amount or ineffective use of insulin in the blood. Other causes of hyperglycemia include inflammation of the pancreas, overactive thyroid glands, cardiovascular health issues, and taking certain medications that elevate blood sugar levels such as oral contraceptives. Our natural treatment for hyperglycemia aims to identify the cause of your high blood sugar levels, allowing us to devise a suitable treatment plan.

Symptoms of Hyperglycemia

Sufferers of acute or chronic hyperglycemia can suffer from a wide variety of symptoms over a period of numerous years. The severity of the symptoms will depend on the volume of glucose in the blood plasma. Relatively mild symptoms include excessive thirst, excessive hunger, excessive urination, blurry vision, dry mouth, dry skin, erectile dysfunction, and fatigue.

More serious symptoms of hyperglycemia include kidney damage, neurological damage, cardiovascular damage, retina damage, seizures, weight loss, irregular heartbeat, and coma. In cases where hyperglycemia treatment is not pursued, a life-threatening condition called ketoacidosis can develop which occurs as a result of insulin deficiencies. This condition results in the body breaking down fats for energy.

Treatment for Hyperglycemia

Effective treatment for hyperglycemia involves careful self-monitoring, which may include maintaining a healthy diet and an active lifestyle that features regular exercise. A lifestyle change is sometimes all that is needed to mitigate the severity of hyperglycemia.

Another remedy that can be used is Fenugreek – a seed that’s also commonly used to treat other health conditions, including inflammation, excessive cholesterol, digestive problems, and menstrual discomfort. This can serve as an effective appetite control, which is important for patients who need to avoid excessive eating that can lead to increased blood sugar levels.
