    What Are the Symptoms of Diabetes?


    Diabetes is a disease of civilization and affects an increasing number of people around the world. At the root of diabetes are genetic and environmental factors and the risk of disease applies equally to persons at genetically as well as those that are affected by environmental factors.


    The symptoms of diabetes are not only very diverse but can also occur at different rates and different configurations. Many of them easily, at the beginning downplay or assign other ailments. Symptoms of diabetes often depends on what stage the disease is diagnosed. It happens that diabetes develops virtually no symptoms and is discovered by accident. Sometimes symptoms are so strong that quickly lead to life-threatening condition (e.g.Ketoacidosis). Therefore, if we observe a sudden deterioration of health or symptoms that do not respond, do not ignore these symptoms and you should see a doctor.


    The first signs of diabetes are usually fatigue, lethargy, increased thirst, frequent urination, weight loss, and increased appetite. This combination of several ailments should especially give us pause. Translation of these symptoms in a rational way does not lead to anything good. Blame for the state of your health weather or excessive overwork does not solve our problems. Therefore, if our sleepiness and fatigue is becoming more comprehensive absolutely we cannot ignore. Drink up a very large amount of fluid (up to 10 liters a day) that the increased excretion of urine should give us pause as well as weight loss, which is not planned.


    Symptoms of type 1 diabetes most often appear suddenly and worsen significantly in a short period of time, which facilitates rapid diagnosis. However, type 2 diabetes symptoms are often diagnosed quite late, and it happens even accidentally. Late detection of the disease is often the cause of various complications, and even damage to internal organs and is often damage to these organs lead to a diagnosis of diabetes.


    Further signs of diabetes can be problems associated with personal hygiene or infection affecting us. One sign of diabetes can be excessive urination. If we follow oral hygiene and still sense the smell of acetone, it is possible that for such a state is responsible diabetes. The recurrent inflammations and infections are all quite disturbing.
