TYPE 1 DIABETES

SYMPTOMS OF DIABETES

How can you tell if you have diabetes? You get most of the initial symptoms when the blood glucose levels are higher than normal. If you recognize these early symptoms and quickly control the sugar level, then you are less at risk of serious complications.

With type 1 diabetes, symptoms usually begin to appear within a few days or a few weeks.They are also very serious.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes may be so mild that you cannot notice them unless there are any serious complications.

Both types of diabetes have somewhat similar warning signs.

Frequent urination

When the blood glucose level is high, the kidneys try to filter out the excess sugar from the blood. This may cause people to urinate more often.

Hunger and fatigue

People with diabetes often do not get enough energy from their food.

The digestive system breaks down food into a simple sugar called glucose, which the body uses as energy. In people with diabetes, the cells of the body start opposing the insulin you make so that glucose remains in the blood.

As a result, people with type 2 diabetes often feel hungry, regardless of how much they have eaten recently.

Dry mouth and itchy skin

Since your body is using excess fluids to urinate, this can cause a lack of moisture in your body. And you may feel dehydrated, which can make your mouth and skin dry. Dry skin can make you itchy.

Blurred vision

Changing the level of fluid in your body can cause your eye lens to swell. And they can change in size making it difficult for you to concentrate. In severe complications, you may also be blind.

Increased thirst

Due to frequent urination, there may be a lack of excess water in the body. Over time, it can also cause dehydration and a person is more thirsty than usual.

Feeling very tired

Type 2 diabetes can affect a person's energy level and can make a person feel very tired. This fatigue occurs as a result of not getting a sufficient amount of sugars in the cells of the body from the bloodstream.

Itching and yeast infections

Both men and women with diabetes may have a yeast infection. Excess sugar in the blood and urine provides food for the yeast, which can lead to infection. These infections can occur on warm, moist areas of the skin such as the mouth, genital areas, and armpits.

Itching may usually occur in these areas, but a person may also experience burning, redness, and rash.

Slow healing of cuts and wounds

Over time, high blood sugar can affect your blood flow and it can damage your body's veins, blood vessels, and nervous system, which can impair blood circulation. Due to which the injury or any wound on your body takes a lot of time to improve, the gradual healing of the wound also increases the risk of infection.

Tingling, numbness, or pain in hands or feet

High blood sugar levels can affect blood circulation and damage the body's veins. In people with type 2 diabetes, it may cause pain or tingling, or numbness in the hands and feet.
