Do you have diabetes, or know anyone who does? Did you know that you may have diabetes or develop this disease without even knowing?
In today's video, you will learn some signs from your body that may indicate you have diabetes. Did you know that diabetes, especially type 2, is a silent disease?
According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 30 million people in the USA have diabetes. And the worst part of it: 25% of them have no idea they are diabetic!
And the scary numbers don't stop there: 84 million Americans have pre-diabetes (when the blood sugar levels are high, but still not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes), and 90% of these people don't know anything about these data.
Some of the symptoms are very subtle and take a long time to manifest themselves. However, some signs of the body may indicate that one has diabetes.
See which signs your body gives:
Frequent urination, dry mouth, increased thirst, and bad breath.
One of the first signs that someone may have diabetes is frequent urination. We can also mention bad breath as one of the symptoms that may indicate diabetes.
Tingling and numbing sensations, aching feet and hands
Some people with diabetes may present diabetic peripheral neuropathy, a condition that causes cold hands and feet, besides aching, numbness, and a tingling sensation.
Being hungry all the time, or having an increased hunger, may also be signs of diabetes.
Did you have a sudden drop in weight, even without dieting? It may be a sign of diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes don't lose weight in the same way since there is still a little bit of insulin production.
Tiredness is another sign that shows at the beginning of the disease.
Blurry vision and dry eyes
Blurry vision can be another sign of diabetes, and one that many people neglect. Besides, it may also hinder tear production, which causes dry eyes.
Those are some of the most common signs that someone may have diabetes without knowing. Of course, these symptoms, alone or combined, may also happen for other reasons.
If you have any of these symptoms, do not hesitate to seek medical help and do the blood tests necessary to know your glycemic index and start the treatment.
Besides making changes in their diet and lifestyle, people with diabetes, or those at risk of developing it, also have to exercise to get better results in the treatment of the disease.
Listen to your body and take care of yourself!
