YOU GET HEADACHES OFTEN
Could type 1 or type 2 diabetes be to blame for the regular headaches that you experience? While there are many potential headache causes, diabetes has been known to cause headaches in some people.
Headaches related to diabetes generally occur due to changes in blood sugar levels. They can affect diabetics (and prediabetics) when blood sugar is too high or too low. The more blood glucose levels fluctuate, the more likely it is that one will experience headaches.
According to medical researchers, fluctuations in blood glucose are caused by changes in hormones such as epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine. These hormones are thought to cause blood vessel constriction, specifically constriction of blood vessels in the brain.
