Major Indicators Of Diabetes

Author : Andre Contado

Indicators of diabetes are often times the same indicators that are seen in other diseases. The only symptoms that are one-of-a-kind to diabetes are not generally apparent without extensive medical testing. Of course that doesn't mean that there are not signs of the disease that you should be looking out for. Diabetes can start to show evidence of itself in a wide array of methods. This article will discuss some of the bigger symptoms of this illness.

The most apparent indicators of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes is that the body quits producing insulin the way it is meant to. Although this is not as noticeable as, say, the signs for the common flu. Ordinarily, this is only recognized when you visit your doctor for a different matter. A decreased amount of insulin can be recognized when you have testing done on your blood or organs. Type 1 often times gets diagnosed when a person is rather young and is usually discovered on the account of the physician trying to diagnose a bug. A bigger sign of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes is that the body stops producing potassium in an accurate manner. The body's potassium gets out of whack and this causes a host of physical symptoms like dehydration, altered mental state and sometimes even a coma can occur if the problem is not caught in time. This wonked out potassium production is usually misdiagnosed at first which is why, if you are not feeling well you insist that your doctor be as thorough as possible in diagnosing you. You don't need the doctor to let you go with a prescription for antibiotics when the literal issue is diabetes!

Most diabetics have issues with their feet at some point. These problems are often the result of poor circulation. You should also call your doctor if your feet or hands have started to tingle. Because of circulation issues, diabetics need to be watchful of their hands and feet. If you develop sores on your feet that won't heal, contact your doctor immediately. Usually these can be treated right in a doctor's office. Don't let the sores and tingling go unchecked. If you ignore these symptoms too long you increase your chances of needing an amputation. There are different signs of diabetes, but they can be agonizing. The most conspicuous signs (the lack of insulin production) are tough to notice without extensive medical testing. Different indicators are quite visible. At the same time, a lot of the apparent signs of diabetes are also apparent signs of other issues and disorders. It is imperative for you to keep a watch over your body (and the bodies of your loved ones). You don't want your sickness to have the wrong diagnosis. Get a second opinion if you are worried your own physician may have misdiagnosed your or your kids.
