As sugar is the substance of life, it is considered precious and, as an imperative, the body goes to large lengths to maintain it. The kidneys hold a natural barricade to prevent the loss of sugar in urine. However all the additional sugar in the bloodstream needs to go somewhere. Because of the disproportionate levels of sugar in the bloodstream of the diabetic, this kidney barricade is inundated, and sugar spills into the urine. To be excreted out in the right consistency, this spilled sugar needs to be in liquid form, so large amounts of water are pulled into the bladder, producing great volumes of urine. To meet this requirement you will be drinking almost all the time. All this creates the typical diabetes symptoms: excessive thirst, excessive urination, excessive hunger, weight loss (from burning muscle and fat to try and nourish the cells), among others.


No one knows for sure the causes of diabetes, even though there may be numerous contributory factors. Genetics is probably one, and fatness is another. On the whole, males are believed to be more prone to diabetes than females, and it is normally older people who develop the disease. Anyway, only your doctor can offer satisfactory diagnosis of symptoms and tell you whether they are in fact diabetes symptoms.


Diabetes symptoms progress according to the extent and range of high blood glucose levels. The symptoms may initially show very mild, then progress to more severe symptoms (i.e. excessive need for liquids and urination), and finally to the perilous life-threatening conditions of kidney failure or heart disease. The progression of symptoms is usually slow and steady over years for type 2 diabetes and quick over weeks or months for type 1 diabetes. Sufferers from type 2 diabetes frequently go undiagnosed long enough to make them start to get signs of the complications of the illness, such as foot or kidney problems.

Many people show no signs or symptoms. Diabetes symptoms may also be so soft that you might not still perceive you have them. Lots of people all over the world have type 2 diabetes and do not recognize it.


Diabetes symptoms to look for: increased hunger and thirst, fatigue, increased urination, inexplicable weight loss, blurry vision, sores that will not heal. At times people have symptoms but do not deduce diabetes. They postpone scheduling a health check for the reason that they do not feel bad. Many diabetics do not discover they have the disease until they have serious complications, such as kidney failure or heart trouble.

This is why it is imperative to detect early if you have diabetes: adequate treatment can prevent harm to the body at early stages. An early sign of kidney injure is when your kidneys give away small quantities of a substance called albumin into the urine. With additional damage, the kidneys leak growingly amounts of albumin. This harm gets worse until the kidneys fall short or stop working. Quantities of people with diabetes feel "in bad condition" or have mild diabetes symptoms that may go unrecognized. Others have signs such as feeling thirsty, urinating frequently, losing weight, feeling tired, having blurred vision, getting skin infections, and having slow healing cuts and bruises. These tribulations should be reported to your physician right away.
