Understanding the signs and symptoms of diabetes can be a puzzling experience and in fact in many cases people that have diabetes go years and years without being aware of the signs and symptoms of diabetes. The reason for this is that such signs and symptoms of diabetes are often invisible and so unless you check for them you won’t know that you have developed a diabetes problem. Another worry is that the signs and symptoms of diabetes are not constant and many of the signs and symptoms are common to other diseases as well. So, it pays to first find out which are the typical signs and symptoms of diabetes and then look for these and only then look for other ones.
Needing To Urinate Frequently
The most common of all signs and symptoms of diabetes is having a problem with having to urinate very frequently. This is a classic symptom that certainly suggests that you have a diabetes problem on your hands while another sign is having elevated levels of glucose in your blood. There are in fact two reasons why a person can have elevated blood sugar levels and these include having too little insulin to control glucose levels or the body might use the available insulin in the wrong way.
When there is too little insulin in the body it gives rise to Type 1 diabetes while if the insulin is not used in the right manner it gives rise to Type 2 diabetes. However, in both Types 1 and 2 diabetes your body will try and eliminate the excess glucose through the process of urination and so the higher the levels of glucose in your body are the more frequent will be your bouts of urination.
Another common sign and symptom of diabetes is feeling very fatigued and the reason for such levels of fatigue are attributed to high glucose levels and also because the body produces insufficient amount of insulin. Low amounts of insulin allow the glucose (source of energy) to remain unprocessed leading to loss of energy and consequently to feeling of unwanted fatigue.
It is also recommended that you look for and understand the symptoms of adult diabetes because if the condition is left untreated it can turn out to be life threatening. Diabetes in adults is a major problem that is affecting millions of people worldwide and in countries such as the USA the problem is almost an epidemic one that must be dealt with at the earliest and on a war footing as well.
