Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 6   |   Comments: 0
Type 2 diabetes can cause a lot of health complications if it goes on unchecked. Without treatment, type 2 diabetes can be fatal due to the complications that arise from it. So a speedy diagnosis is of utmost importance here. However, sometimes the patient is ignorant of the symptoms of diabetes. Hence they go on without check ups until things get really bad for them. This should be avoided at all costs. This is why it is important to know the symptoms of type 2 diabetes.

The possible symptoms of type 2 diabetes caused by high blood sugar level are as follows: -

* Increased hunger (especially just after you have finished eating).

* Increased thirst.

* Mouth drying out inexplicably.

* Urination occurring frequently.

* Unexplained weight loss, even though you have a good appetite and are feeling hungry as you normally do.

* Fatigue. You feel tired very easily, you feel weak.

* Your vision keeps blurring.

* You get unexplained headaches.

* You lose consciousness (this a rare thing to happen but it does happen).

If you think that you have any of these symptoms, you must contact your health care professional at once. This is a disease that is not to be trifled with. You will be putting yourself at a great amount of risk if you choose to ignore the symptoms.

If you are unsure about your symptoms, you should still consult your health care specialist. He will be able to explain to you the exact nature of the symptoms of type 2 diabetes.

The main problem with type 2 diabetes is that the symptoms either do not show up at all or they develop so gradually that the person cannot tell that it is happening. This is why it is said that many people who have type 2 diabetes do not even know they have it. This is what makes it all the more important to go in for a check up even if all you have are faint suspicions. In most cases, diabetes is only diagnosed when the symptoms show themselves fully. By this time, the disease has already progressed to an advanced stage. So catching it earlier on would be a huge advantage in your favor.

Here are the other symptoms that people suffering from type 2 diabetes might develop: -

* Cuts and sores take longer to heal.

* Person develops itchy skin, especially in the area surrounding the genitals.

* Yeast infections become more frequent. This is actually a direct result of the higher blood sugar level - yeast love sugar.

* Weight gain (yes, it contradicts the earlier list but it happens).

* Acanthosis nigricans - the skin around the neck, armpit and groin turns dark and velvety.

* Hand and feet feel numb and tingle sometimes.

* Your vision is worsened, meaning you have trouble seeing things.

* Impotency

So if you have one or more of these symptoms, it might be a good idea to get checked for type 2 diabetes.

To your health
