Why High Blood Sugar Cause Frequent Urination and Thirst: Type 2 Diabetes #9
Type 2 - Dr. Vladmir Carvalho
Published at : 12 Dec 2020
Today, I'll tell you why patients with type 2 diabetes feel like urinating all the time, have sweet urine and feel thirsty.
When blood sugar gets higher than 180 mg/dl, the glucose transporters in your kidneys can't take all the glucose back to the blood and some of it will go into the urine. The higher the blood sugar, the more sugar will be in the urine. If your kidneys are normal and you don't have diabetes, this would not happen, but it's very common in patients with diabetes.
