Dysglycemia Is A Medical Term Used To Describe The Unstable Levels Of Blood Sugar Levels In The Body
This instability of blood glucose often leads to health problems. Health conditions like diabetes (both Type 1 & Type 2) along with gestational diabetes and drug-induced fluctuations in blood glucose are all considered types of dysglycemia.
With dysglycemia, your blood sugar levels can shoot abnormally high or fall extremely low – in both cases, your body is unable to properly manage the glucose level in the blood. This, in the long term, can be dangerous for your overall health.

In people with dysclycemia, the body cells become less receptive to insulin. Insulin is a naturally occurring substance that helps transport glucose to the cells in the body. With the cells becoming less receptive, the insulin is unable to do its job properly.
With dysglycemia, there are no particular lower or upper limits of blood sugar. Blood glucose levels that may be high for some, might be normal for others. This is an individual condition that requires individualized care.
Normally, dysglycemia is characterized by symptoms like:
- Profuse perspiration
- Excessive urination
- Extreme weight loss/gain
- Increased appetite
- Unusual thirst
- Extreme exhaustion
