If you blood sugar levels are higher than what is considered normal you may find that you start to lose weight very quickly.   You could be losing as much as 10 to 20lbs over a 2 or 3 month period.

The reason for the weight loss is that your insulin hormone in your body isn’t being supplied without enough glucose that it can then use as energy.   As a result of this your body starts to thing it is starving and begins to break down protein in your muscles to provide it with an alternative source of energy.

Plus your kidneys are going to be working harder than normal to get rid of the excess sugar, which means that your body isn’t being supplied with enough calories.
