 High Blood Sugar can Negatively Impact Your Appearance
High blood sugar speeds up ageing and most victims look older than they really are, a study has revealed.

Unhealthy diet and negligible physical activity are known to disturb blood sugar levels in the body but this is perhaps the first study of its kind to show how it can impact ageing.

The study revealed how every additional millimole per litre increase in blood sugar contributes to an increase of five months of ageing to victims' facial features.

People with low blood sugar readings appeared atleast a year younger than their counterparts with high blood sugar readings.
