Warning signals and symptoms of diabetes may include Frequent urination. Increased thirst. Always hungry. Feeling very tired.
Diabetes is a metabolic syndrome that occurs due to a lack of insulin and/or the inability of insulin to properly exert its effects, causing an increase in blood glucose (sugar) levels.
Diabetes occurs because the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin to meet the body’s needs, or because this hormone cannot work properly (insulin resistance).
Here are 13 Symptoms and Warning Signals of Diabetes
1 – Increased urination
In general, people with diabetes almost always have an overwhelming urge to urinate, and it is often this symptom that leads to their diagnosis. This increased urination often results in severe dehydration.
2 – Weight loss
Rapid and unexplained weight loss is a common symptom in people with type 1 diabetes. Because the body cannot absorb glucose, fat becomes the primary source of energy, resulting in unintended weight loss. On the other hand, people with type 2 diabetes are often overweight because their diabetes is often linked to an excessive and unbalanced diet associated with a lack of physical activity.
3 – Increased appetite
Symptoms Warning Signals Diabetes
In type 1 diabetes, sudden weight loss is often accompanied by an increase in appetite, which could be a pleasant feeling, as you are free to eat whatever you like to regain your weight. However, because your body is in a diabetic state, your cells remain deprived of glucose, which explains your constant hunger.
4 – Unexplained fatigue
We have already established that insulin resistance leads to an inability to absorb essential energy (glucose). When this happens, energy levels suffer, causing extreme physical and mental fatigue.
