Your body is experiencing some strange symptoms, could they be warning signs of diabetes? You are wondering if the excessive thirst, frequent trips to the bathroom and fatigue are simply the result of a change in diet and work or if they indicate something more is going on.
The earlier a diagnosis is made the easier the disease is to treat so it is time to stop guessing and discover if these are warning signs of diabetes.
Many of the warning signs diabetes, both Type 1 and Type 2, can be subtle and easily dismissed as a normal variation in the body, in fact, "An estimated 24 million Americans have diabetes, but according to the CDC, one-quarter to one-third don’t know it."
This means many people you pass on the street every day have this disease and are blind to the fact. Part of the reason this number is so high is because the signs and symptoms can be easily overlooked and in some cases not present at all.
Identify if you have any of the following signs or symptoms as they might be indications that you have diabetes or prediabetes, which is often a precursor to type 2 diabetes.
The symptoms of diabetes can be hard to figure out on your own. If you notice one or more of these warning signs of diabetes check with your doctor right away; when diabetes is discovered early the disease can be delayed and in some cases reversed.
