Research in both type 1 DM (Disease Control and Complications Trial (DCCT) and type 2 DM (The United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study (UKPDS) shows us beyond doubt that high blood glucose for long periods put you at risk of developing complications in the eyes, kidneys, nerves, blood vessels leading to heart attack and strokes.
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try to keep your blood sugar in the range your doctor has advised, it can be too high or too low. Your blood sugar may be too high if you are very thirsty and tired, have blurry vision, are losing weight fast, and have to go to the bathroom often.
Testing your blood sugar often, especially when you are sick, will warn you that your blood sugar may be rising too high.

If you are not sick and do not have ketones in your urine, going for a slow walk or some other easy exercise may lower your blood sugar.
If your blood sugar drops too low, you can have a low blood sugar reaction, called hypoglycemia.
That is why it is very important to test your blood and keep taking your medicine (insulin or diabetes pills) when you have an infection or are sick. You may need a change in your insulin shots or diabetes pills, or a change in your meal plan.

It is caused by taking too much insulin, missing a meal, delaying a meal, exercising too much, or drinking too much alcohol.
High blood sugar can happen if you miss taking your diabetes medicine, eat too much, or don't get enough exercise.
