Excess sugar in the body is dangerous and harmful to your health. The commonest way of knowing the sugar level in your system is by visiting a doctor for proper check up, but other than that, the following signs can also suggest that your sugar level is high.

You suffer too much ACNE

There’s a relationship between high sugar levels in the body and acne. The higher the amount of sugar you take into your system, the more likely it is that you’ll have acne attacks.


Cavities are more often than not, a glaring sign of a sweet tooth. Cavities are painful, but avoidable too. Brush very well after each meal to keep your teeth clean, and keep cavities away.

High blood pressure

You may not have known this, but there’s a serious link between high blood pressure and excess sugar. Regular consumption of a high sugar diet can push your blood pressure to abnormal levels. To be safe, it’s important you cut down on the sugar.

Weight gain

Foods that are high in sugar never really leave you filled (which makes you eat more) and do not compensate for total energy, that is, they do not displace other foods, so they add to your total calorie intake, which means weight gain.

It messes with your taste buds

Eating a lot of sugar can mess with your taste buds over time. The more you consume, the more it increases your taste buds’ tolerance for sugar, and as a result, you’ll need to eat even more and more sugar to satisfy craving. This is not a good thing, and you must cut down to restore your taste buds to its normal state.

In all, try as much as you can to cut down on your sugar intake, it’s dangerous and unhealthy, and can be fatal.
