Symptoms of DiabetesPosted by in Uncategorized
Concerned for the health of you or loved ones? Not sure you have diabetes? Diabetes often can go undiagnosed because its symptoms seem harmless and are common in many other ailments. Several recent studies have shown that the earlier diabetes is detected, the fewer the chances are of developing complications of diabetes.
The main symptoms for Type One Diabetes (proved by the American Diabetes Association) are:
- Frequent urination
- Unusual thirst
- Extreme hunger
- Sudden weight loss
- Extreme fatigue
The main systems for Type Two Diabetes are:
- Any Type One Symptoms
- Frequent, sudden infections
- Blurred vision
- Cuts or bruises that take longer than normal to heal
- Tingling or numbness, especially in the hands or feet
- Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections
It’s also possible that people with Type Two Diabetes may have no symptoms.
If you have one or more of these symptoms, it would be wise to see your doctor. Diabetes is a very serious ailment that requires immediate attention.
About 25.8 million residents of the United States (of any age) have diabetes. Only about 18.8 million of those people have been diagnosed. 29 million U.S.A. residents have prediabetes, and without immediate action they will soon have diabetes too. That means 1 in every 400 children or adolescents have contracted diabetes. It’s clear that diabetes is a very serious ailment. All the listed symptoms may mean that you have contracted diabetes.
