    Signs & Symptoms of Diabetes!

    What are the Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes?

    Type 1 Diabetes symptoms:


    frequent urination
    unusual thirst
    unusual weight loss
    extreme fatigue and irritability


    may also have:


    abdominal pain
    nausea
    vomiting
    skin infections
    thrush
    extreme hunger
    poor concentration and performance


    Type 1 Diabetes is an auto-immune disease where the body turns against the cells called beta cells found in the pancreas that make insulin.


    This process happens over time. So, usually a patient just diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes will still have some insulin being produced. However, gradually insulin production decreases until it finally stops.


    It commonly occurs in young children, but can occur in people of any age. It is also less common than type 2 diabetes

    Type 2 Diabetes - signs and symptoms
    High blood glucose levels:


    fatigue and irritability
    thirst
    frequent urination
    blurry vision
    frequent infections
    hunger and weight loss
    nose going numb or ringing in the ears
    tingling, numbness
    burning or pain in the extremities
    eye disturbances
    sores, blisters or cracks that won't heal
    recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections
    sometimes no symptoms at all




    Low blood glucose levels:
    confusion
    hunger
    weakness
    shakiness
    rapid heartbeat
    perspiration
    dizziness
    nervousness or irritability

    Type 2 Diabetes is when the body becomes insulin resistant and does not utilize insulin properly, or does not produce enough insulin to process blood glucose into fuel that the body can use. This is the most common form of diabetes and was once thought of occurring mainly in older people, but people of all ages can develop this type of diabetes.

    Gestational Diabetes - What is Gestational Diabetes?


    Gestational diabetes occurs in women during pregnancy, who don't have diabetes, but their blood glucose levels rise above normal.


    It is unclear what causes gestational diabetes, but what we do know is that that the placenta which supplies baby's needs, produces hormones that help baby to develop. Unfortunately, these hormones can also inhibit insulin working in the mother's body. This is called insulin resistance, and it means the body does not use the insulin properly, so that more insulin is required, sometimes as much as three times more.


    Gestational diabetes occurs much in the same way as Type 2 Diabetes does, in that your body cannot produce or use all the insulin it needs while pregnant. Without enough insulin needed to utilize blood glucose, the levels begin to rise causing hyperglycaemia.
