Recognizing Early Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes

Diabetes is one of the most common diseases affecting a huge part of the population worldwide. While talking about diabetes, the first and foremost question that arises is how can a person know if he or she is having diabetes.

Generally, there are two types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. For Type 1 diabetes, symptoms start to show quickly within a few days or weeks while in Type 2 diabetes, symptoms can be so mild that it is difficult to analyze until the disease gets bigger and cause long-term damage. 

Some of the early signs and symptoms of diabetes are

  1. Frequent Urination

Going for a pee too often can be a sign of high blood sugar levels as kidneys try to take off the excess sugar by filtering it out of the blood in the form of urine mostly at night.

  1. Increased Thirst

Frequent urination leads to increased thirst as the body feels dehydrated after removing excess sugar and water.

  1. Often Fatigue

People with Type 2 diabetes often feel fatigued due to low energy levels. This happens due to the inadequate supply of sugar from the bloodstream to the cells in different parts of the body.

  1. Often Hungry

In our body, the digestive system plays the role of breaking down the sugar from the food into glucose which travels down from the bloodstream to the cells. In Diabetic people, enough glucose cannot reach the cells and hence people with Type 2 diabetes often feel hungry all the time.

  1. Blurred Vision

Excess sugar in the blood can lead to swelling in the eyes or even damage the tiny blood vessels in the eyes. This leads to blurred vision which can get better if the blood sugar levels are reduced

or can even get worse and may cause severe damage which eventually leads to permanent vision loss if left untreated.

  1. Lesser immunity and a slow healing process

High blood sugar levels can reduce the body’s ability to fight diseases and can also damage nerves and blood vessels responsible for blood circulation. This in turn increases the healing time and even small wounds can take longer to heal. In Type 2 diabetic people, high blood sugar can lead to pain or numbness in the hands and feet. It may cause serious complications if diabetes is not managed or treated.

  1. Dark skin patches, itching, and yeast infections

Dark skin patches on the neck, armpit, or groin can also be the signs and symptoms of diabetes. Excess sugar in the blood and urine often leads to yeast infections in the mouth, skin, genital areas, and armpits. Diabetic persons may feel itchy, burning sensation, soreness, or discoloration in the affected areas.
