Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
I have gone through your question.

Possible symptoms and signs of hyperglycemia include:
-Increased thirst
-Frequent peeing
-Trouble concentrating
-Blurred vision
-Weight loss

Ongoing high blood sugar may cause:
-Damage to your eyes, blood vessels, or kidneys
-Slow-healing cuts and sores
-Worse vision
-Vaginal and skin infection.
-Nerve damage causing painful cold or insensitive feet

You should know that high blood sugar or hyperglycemia (fasting or postprandial) can affect people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

My advice is to consult your physician if you have any of the symptoms of the list because there may be chances of having Diabetes and may need a treatment accordingly.

Hope this is helpful.
If you have other questions, please feel free and ask.
Best regards.
