With the number of diabetes’ patients rising, it’s hard not to worry about whether you or someone you know might be the next. However, we’re here to quell your worrying and give you a guide of all the early signs you need to look out for to avoid diabetes.
Hunger and fatigue. The body transforms the food we eat into glucose that our cells use for energy. But if the body can’t make enough insulin, or if our cells resist the insulin the body makes, the glucose can't get into them and you have no energy leaving us more hungry and tired than usual.
Peeing more often and being thirstier. The average person usually goes to pee between four and seven times in 24 hours, but people with diabetes might even go a lot more.
Dry mouth and itchy skin. Since the body is using the fluids to make pee, there's less moisture for other things which causes a dry mouth and itchy skin.
Blurred vision. Changing fluid levels in your body could result in making the lenses in the eyes swell up. This causes the eyes to lose their ability to focus.
Pain or numbness in your feet or legs. high blood sugar can affect your blood flow and cause nerve damage; a result of this nerve damage feeing numb or pain in your feet or legs.
Unplanned weight loss. When your body doesn’t get energy from your food, it will start burning muscle and fat for energy instead. You coul lose weight even though you haven't changed how you eat.
Finally, to be on the safe side, always make sure to look out for these signs and always have a proper check-up to make sure if anything is not right you get it attended too right away.
