Understanding the Diabetes Symptoms

Oct 18th 2013 at 6:36 AM

Diabetes is a serious disease and common phenomena among people. There are millions of diabetes sufferers worldwide today. Treating diabetes can be hard for many sufferers. It can drastically change the way you live your life, which can be hard to adjust to and eventually it can cause a lot of complications that can seriously affect your overall well-being.

Anyone who wants to know whether he or she really suffers from diabetes, going through certain medical tests could help them to diagnosis the type of disease especially the people with history of disease in their family.

Experts say that the severity of diabetes can be diagnosed and termed into type 1 & 2.

Type 1 diabetes: the body produces none of the insulin that regulates our blood sugar levels. Very high glucose levels can damage the body's organs. Type 1 diabetes is a disease of insulin deficiency.

Type 2 diabetes: The body system do produce insulin, but just not enough to keep their glucose levels normal. Type 2 diabetes typically develops because the body requires more insulin than normal. In this case, the heavier you are the greater the risk you will develop with type 2 diabetes.

People suffering with type1 diabetes is known as ‘insulin dependent diabetes’ that primarily targeting the body’s immune system, whereas a person who suffers type 2 diabetes is known as ‘adult-onset diabetes’ can be preventable and reversible with proper diabetes management plan.

Diabetes Symptoms

All too often we get sick but ignore the symptoms we may be feeling, shrugging them off to a cold, stress from work, or just not feeling well.

Those who suffering from type 1diabetes would experience thirstiness, dryness of mouth despite taking in lots of fluid, the urgent need to urinate more often, drastic loss of weight, feeling of being weak or tired despite less workload, giddiness and blurring of vision in most occasions.

The type 2 diabetes sufferers would have blurring of vision, wound or sores, that takes a long time to heal, itchiness of skin, frequent development of yeast infections, increased or onset thirst, drying of mouth, frequent urination, and mild to extreme leg pains etc.

Although the above symptoms can give you a hint whether you are suffering from the illness or not, relying on these are not enough. Experts say that only way to confirm if one has diabetes or not is to get a test. Following tests that one can get from a clinic on regular basis:

  1. Plasma glucose test is the most preferred test for people with diabetes and requires a person to go fasting at least eight hours or ideally the night before the test to ensure that the blood sample that will be drawn and examined for glucose levels is accurate.

  2. Random blood glucose tests - unlike the above plasma glucose test it doesn’t require fasting but the blood samples should be drawn out immediately after the person has eaten something.
  3. Impaired fasting glucose test is widely recommended as a new diagnostic category, for people with diabetes. The blood sugar levels can determine the probability of the person to have diabetes or not.

 

People with diabetes also experience unexplained weight loss. This is because they are unable to process many of the calories they consume. Losing sugar and water in the urine also contributes to the weight loss.

The first thing to do treating diabetes is bringing your blood glucose level to normal. Glucose is a sugar that comes from the foods that we eat every day. The same is formed and stored in our body system. It's the main source of energy for the cells of the body, and is carried to each cell through the blood. Glucose gets into the cells with the help of the hormone called ‘insulin’. If diabetes is poorly controlled or left untreated, it may lead to blindness, kidney disease, blood vessel damage, infection, heart disease, nerve damage, high blood pressure, stroke, limb amputation, and coma.

Studies show that lifestyle changes can help prevent, delay or reverse type 2 diabetes, if the disease is identified in early stage. Type 2 diabetes could be reversed by strictly following a daily 800-calorie diet for few weeks.

Eating right kind of food is vital if you’re trying to prevent or control diabetes. While exercise is also important, what you eat has the biggest impact when it comes to weight loss.

Although living with diabetes is hard, there are ways on how you will be able to properly manage the disease in order for you to live a near normal life.
