Is It Possible Nose Bleeding Due To High Diabetes ?

My blood sugar(f)-215 mg/dl and PP sugar-330mg/dl. My nose has been bleeding for four days. Is it due to having a high sugar level?

Answer

Probably not.

Nose bleeds might be due to other general medical conditions, such as high blood pressure or bleeding disorders, as well as local factors including inflammation or injury of the nasal area.

If it is persisting for days, you should be evaluated by a physician to identify the source of the bleeding and help stop the bleeding.
