Can hyperglycemia cause headaches?

You know you’re in for a fun ride when two of the most popular medical terms come together to form something that could pass off as a tongue twister- hyperglycemia and headaches. But seriously, can they be related? Let’s investigate.

What is Hyperglycemia?

Before we dive into answering the titular question, let us first understand what hyperglycemia is. Hyperglycemia simply means high blood sugar levels. It happens when your body cannot effectively transport glucose from your blood into cells that need it, usually because of an insufficient amount of insulin.

Insulin Overload

Insulin plays an important role in reducing our blood glucose levels by allowing glucose to enter cells where it can be used for energy or stored if not immediately required. If you have too much insulin present, this causes your blood sugar (glucose) level to drop dramatically causing hypoglycemia which isn’t really ideal either; always stick with moderation friends!

The Importance Of Moderation

Now back onto Topic A – With diabetes becoming more and more prevalent these days on every scale across all ages, lifestyles and heredity alike; one positive note is self-awareness although please don’t give yourself anxiety over thinking anything/everything might be ‘can I say’ hyper-glycaemic? Keep mindful and use common sense/modeum at all times but the answer is possibly yes especially after meals drinking sugary based drinks etc.

Does Hyperglycaemic Cause Headaches?

Yes! Increasing evidence indicates that those with conditions such as type 1 or type 2 Diabetes may experience headaches due largely to fluctuations in their blood sugar levels(well there’s no surprise there then!); These kind of symptoms are sometimes driven by vascular changes relating to tightness/relaxing issues(Relax bruh just relax). When carbohydrates are broken down into sugar (glucose) and released into the bloodstream too quickly, your body has to release a rush of insulin in response, the end result being headaches/nausea/irritability/confusion.

But Wait…

However…the information available regarding hyperglycemia and headaches is mixed. For example, if you’re dealing with hypoglycaemia (low blood sugars); this can also occur after drinking alcohol,bread/pasta products whilst cutting out any carbs altogether especially for those Diabetic sufferers taking medication/injection treatments that help control their blood sugar levels so it’s important not to cut corners in changing any routine!

Keeping Your Blood Sugar Levels Stabilised.

If keeping your glucose under lock & key just hasn’t been possible on certain days and as a results you have developed some kind of headache symptoms – simply relax/rebooting/resetting your mindset will definitely be helpful but so will other small combinations like;

  • Ensure Healthy meal plans consisting mainly protein based foods
  • Drinking more water throughout day

The Final Verdict

Well folks, there we have it – YES (and No), Hyperglycemia may very well cause sudden,onset headaches due largely to changes/vessel dilation et al alongside low-blood-sugar or over-indulging pains. However each case should be taken individually through diagnotic means or using Simply/easily at home testing apparatus which many pharmacies/nutritional outlets offer now(!). Ultimately although self-diagnosis isn’t ideal nor recommended yet checking our habits and looking after ourselves ahead is always favourable than finding resolutions later.
