Diabetes is a a dreadful and severe Illness that does not need to be taken lightly. In no way am I an expert in the medical field I am just pulling info to share with you to help and I both become better educated in the area of Diabetes.
Type I Diabetes is usually detected early in life, because of an Injury or some other type of illness such a virus or urinary tract infection. One of the main common symptoms would be fatigue. The fatigue in this situation would be caused by the body switching over to metabolizing fat as a fuel source. When this happens the body uses more energy. When your body goes through this, it causes you to be tired and/or just plain fatigued. Another major symptom to look for is unexpected weight loss. If you are losing weight for no apparent weight it may be caused by sugar being released in your urine and also calories not being processed by your body correctly. If you feel thirsty all the time you could also be looking at having Diabetes. This symptom is caused by high glucose levels which makes you thirsty to help you to dilute the high blood sugar back to normal levels and to compensate for the water lost by excessive urination. Some people with Diabetic symptoms also suffer from blurred vision and a confused mental state. Blurred vision is seen in other cases not related to Diabetes but is also tied in with High Glucose Levels. Sometimes Agitation, unexplained irritability, inattention, extreme lethargy, or confusion can all be signs of very high blood sugar, ketoacidosis, hyperosmolar hyperglycemia nonketotic syndrome, or even Hypoglycemia.
These are most of the major identifiable symptoms of Diabetes that you may need to look for. If you have any reason to believe that you maybe be developing any type of Diabetes you need to get checked out by your family physician.
