Does Growing Boils In Some Parts Of The Body Be Affected By High Blood Sugar Levels?
Want to ask. A few days ago my father went to check blood sugar at the health center, and it turned out that the blood sugar was more than 200, which I was surprised too … in my hands and on the head some sores appeared large enough. Is that the influence of high sugar sugar brd? And is this sugar level already alarming?
Thank you for the question.
When examined in a condition of not fasting (blood sugar at a time and blood sugar 2 hours postprandial), normal blood sugar does not exceed 200 mg / dL. Meanwhile, if examined after fasting for at least 9 hours, then this blood sugar does not normally reach 124 mg / dL.
If indeed your father's blood sugar levels are more than 200 mg / dL, then he is most likely to be diabetics. This condition occurs when the body is unable to produce enough insulin to normalize blood sugar levels, or when the body is resistant to the action of the hormone insulin even though it has been produced sufficiently by the pancreas. Clinically, diabetics do not always directly produce typical symptoms. After the condition worsens, complaints often arise such as frequent thirst, frequent hunger, frequent urination, weakness, fatigue, weight loss dramatically, frequent tingling and body aches, and so on. Because of decreased immune system, diabetics are also often more prone to infections, including skin infections such as boils. Not only that, large boils that grow on your father's head and hands may also arise due to other factors, such as poor personal hygiene, allergies or irritation, immune disorders due to other triggers (such as HIV, malnutrition), and so on.
If after the health center your father has received treatment, you should help your father undergo treatment according to the doctor's advice. In order for healing to run more optimally, also make the following efforts:
Set dietary patterns, such as by increasing the intake of vegetables, fruits, and nuts, limit the consumption of foods containing high carbohydrates and bad fats, limit the consumption of instant and preservative foods, drink enough water Diligently exercising every day so that more ideal body weight and not bloated stomach Do not squeeze or prick the boils that appear Improve personal hygiene Do not carelessly exchange personal belongings with others, including toiletries, headgear, clothes, and towels Do not take any drugs without doctor's advice If by doctor's handling and efforts above conditions your father has not improved, do not hesitate to go back to see a doctor, a doctor of internal medicine, or a dermatologist so that his complaint is given further treatment, okay?
I hope this helps.
