Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms

By: Moses Wright

Diabetes is common for quite a number of people. Sadly, few people take notice of common symptoms, leading to a delayed diagnosis of diabetes. However, one should bear in mind that not everyone will experience the same signs. Some symptoms might show up for some people, while others might not experience other symptoms.

Among the most popular of symptoms is frequent urination. When the body is unable to utilize insulin effectively, it causes one to urinate often. In type 1 diabetes not enough insulin is made by the body. In Type 2 diabetes the insulin that is produced by the body is not utilized in the right way.

With diabetes the body will try to balance the glucose levels by eliminating it through urination. Your kidneys have to put in more effort to clean the extra sugars that your body makes. In the event that not a sufficient amount is secreted the rest is removed as bodily waste.

A common result of frequent urination is the heavy desire to drink. Many diabetics have reported they feel the need to drink on a consistent basis, almost as if they can not get enough to drink. The more liquids a persons body takes in the more frequent they will urinate.

Another frequently reported symptom is fatigue. This is usually caused because the insulin isn't able to properly help the cells to take the needed glucose from the blood, causing the individual to feel fatigued on a continuous basis. Glucose has an important function in our bodies. This is the principle manner in which your body gets its energy and it aids in repairing any damage done to your cells.

Blurred vision is another common symptom of diabetes, however this can also be a symptom of other diseases or health related issues. Problems with vision is common among the elderly population, simply because age can effect the eyes. However, in diabetes blurred vision is caused by elevated blood sugar levels. Your eye tissues and lenses will probably lose focus whenever you have an increase in blood sugar levels. When diabetes is at a more advanced stage, blood vessels found within your eye's retina might not be formed well. This can cause the individual to see dark spots, rings, or even flashing lights.

In Type 2 diabetes it is common for cuts to take longer to heal. It is normally seen on an individual's feet. This is considered to be an indicator because doctors are not quite sure why this is. The high levels of glucose will reduce the defenses and efficiency of the immune system, further slowing down the healing processes.

Just because you might have some of these symptoms does not mean that you are a diabetic. These are just a few of the more popular warning signs or symptoms. If you find that you might be suffering form any of these, you should by all means notify your health care professional. Such symptoms can pose more medical problems.
