10 Top Symptoms of Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease characterized by high level of blood sugar in the body which causes all sort of complications in the body. Diabetes itself does not kill but the complications. In order to prevent yourself from the harmful effect of complications you need to control your blood sugar by controlling your food and use your drugs.
TOP TEN SYMPTOMS OF DIABETES
1. FREQUENT URINATION
Diabetes can make you urinate more than usual especially during the night. If you are getting up like 3 times or more during the night to urinate, then you might need to check your sugar level or control what you are eating. If you need to urinate frequently more than usual that you are feeling concern about your level of urination, it could be a
symptom of diabetes.
This is because the kidneys are working hard to get rid of all that extra blood glucose.
2. ABNORMAL THIRST
Diabetes will make you feel thirsty than before. Since you are urinating more than before, your
body will be trying to replenish those lost fluids from the body and that is why you will be feeling so thirsty for more water.
3. ABNORMAL HUNGER
Just like diabetes can make you more thirsty, it can also make you more hungry. This
excessive hunger can
come from sharp peaks and lows in blood sugar levels as the body craves more or less of the glucose that cells need to function.
4. YEAST AND FUNGI INFECTIONS
Yeast candida and other fungal infections could be a symptom of diabetes.
Fungi and bacteria are known to grow in sugar-rich environ, so they tend to thrive in a diabetic body.
Also your body is vulnerable to all sort of infections since your immune system will be low.
5. DRY SKIN
Dry skin such as itchy skin can be a sign of diabetes. Other skin conditions like acanthosis nigricans which is the darkening of the skin around the neck or armpit area is also a great sign of diabetes.
If you have acanthosis
nigricans it is better you check your blood sugar and talk to your doctor if your blood sugar is still normal because acanthosis nigricans may be a sign of high insulin resistance.
6. LONG OR POOR HEALING PROCESS
Having cuts, and bruises that
fail to heal as at when due is a great symptoms of diabetes.
This is because the excessive amounts of glucose traveling the veins and arteries will get the veins and arteries damaged making it hard for the blood needed to take part in the healing process to reach the injured part of the body.
7. WEIGHT LOSS
One of the symptoms of diabetes is weight loss as a result of high blood sugar levels. The reason for this weight loss is because the the body starts breaking down protein from the muscle to get energy as insulin hormone is not supplying glucose into the cells, where it can be used as energy.
Another reason for the weight loss is that lots of calories are loss as the kidneys are also doing a great work to eliminate the excess sugar.
8. TINGLING AND NUMBNESS
Another symptoms of diabetes is Tingling or numbness in the hands and feet as well as burning pain or swelling in those part of the body. Diabetes damages nerves and tingling, numbness and burning pain are those symptoms that your nerves are going through the process of damages. This is termed neuropathy (nerve damaged).
9. FEELING OF FATIGUE
Fatigue and irritability are two among many of the symptoms of diabetes. You will be sick if your blood sugar is high. The weakness that comes with it will make you feel fatigue and irritable. The reason for these symptoms is that the body will be working hard to fill the gap or make up for the lack of glucose.
10. FAILING OR POOR VISION
Failing vision is also one of the symptoms of diabetes or high blood sugar level.
There is no way a high blood sugar level will not cause blurred vision because high blood glucose changes the shape of the lens and the eye causing distortion in vision. If care is not taken and your blood sugar is higher for an unchecked long period of time, it can lead to blindness. But is changeable before blindness if you reverse your blood sugar level to normal.
