Typical Diabetic Symptoms And Their Management
Excessive blood sugar, medically referred to as diabetes, is characterized by unique symptoms whose intensity varies depending on the extent of the condition. Typical diabetic symptoms include fatigue, blurred vision, increased thirst and hunger, numbness of limbs, frequent urination, weight loss, and mental exhaustion. Diabetes is caused by the inability of the body to process starches, hence sugar, adequately, in effect resulting in excessive sugar levels in the blood.
Implication of high blood sugar
Diabetes 1 is the more severe of the two forms of diabetes (diabetes 1 and 2), and it can develop rapidly with acute symptoms. Diabetes 2, on the other hand, may develop incognito with mild or no symptoms. Extreme levels of blood sugar, especially when raised in a short duration, increase the symptoms of extreme hunger, thirst, urination frequency, and blurred vision. Diabetes management focuses on reducing factors that raise blood sugar, such as increased refined/ white starch intake and or stress.
