If it is lower than 70,one may get shivering,restlessness,loss of temper and weakness.In extreme cases.it may result in diabetic coma also which is really dangerous.

When it goes too high. high thirst,hunger,craving for sweets ,itchiness,even small wounds not healing properly and frequent urination are the symptoms.Best is to visit a diagnostic lab on empty stomach in the morning and get yourself tested.
