Symptoms and warning signs of diabetes – World Diabetes day
A report revealed that the most of the population which is suffering with diabetes remains unaware of this dangerous disease. The reason behind is that it is under diagnosed by the doctors.
14 November is marked as World Diabetes day by the WHO (World Health Organizations) to spread awareness about it. To play our part and to give you awareness about the symptoms and warning signs of the Diabetes, here we have gathered top 10 things you must know.
You’re tired all the time
Ongoing fatigue is an important symptom to pay attention to; it might mean the food you’re eating for energy isn’t being broken down and used by cells as it’s supposed to.
You’re moody and grumpy
When your blood sugar is out of whack, you just don’t feel well and might become more short-tempered.
Your cuts and scrapes heal more slowly
The immune system and the processes that help the body heal don’t work so well.
Your feet tingly
Elevated sugar levels can cause complications well before you realize you have diabetes. One of these is mild nerve damage, which can cause numbness.
You’re more prone to urinary tract and yeast infections
Higher levels of sugar in urine and the vagina can become a breeding ground for the bacteria.
You’re taking more bathroom breaks
When you have diabetes, your body becomes less efficient at breaking food down into sugar, so you have more sugar sitting in your bloodstream.
You’re thirstier than usual
Urinating a lot will also make you feel parched.
You’ve lost a little weight
You lose some calories in the urine and you don’t absorb all the calories from the sugar in your blood.
You feel shaky and hungry
If you’ve eaten something high in carbohydrates, your body shoots out a little too much insulin, and your glucose drops quickly. This makes you feel shaky, and you tend to crave carbs or sugar.
Your vision seems blurry
In the early stages of diabetes, the eye lens is not focusing well because glucose builds up in the eye, which temporarily changes its shape.
