Warning Signs For Type 2 Diabetes
by Brent Cullen
vary in relation to the amount of glucose in your body. When you consume food, the
level will increase and if you are not eating, it will decrease. Insulin moves the glucose
to different areas in your body. If you have more glucose then your body can handle,
the excess amount will be stored in your liver and it will be released when it is
needed. It is a difficult balance between the pancreas, liver, insulin and glucose.
If you develop type 2 diabetes, one of two things will take place. Either your
pancreas will stop producing the proper amounts of insulin that your body requires or
you will become resistant to insulin. No matter which way it will go, the results will be
the same, high blood sugar levels.
When something is wrong with your body, it has ways of signaling you. It is
extremely important that you familiarize yourself with the symptoms of type 2
diabetes because the sooner that you can catch it, the less damage that it will do to
your body. Here are some things to look for in type 2 diabetes.
One of the most overlooked symptoms of type 2 diabetes is extreme fatigue. This is
because people are so busy with their jobs and lifestyle and they have so much
stress in their everyday lives that they automatically think that this is why they are
so tired all the time. If you feel tired and sleepy all the time, even after a good nights
sleep, then you should see your doctor for a checkup and make sure everything is all
Another sign is a drastic change in your weight. Maybe you feel hungry all of the time
and this causes you to eat more and gain weight. The excess fat that you have in
your body causes it to become more resistant to the effects of insulin that is
produced. You may also eat more then normal and end up losing weight. This is
caused by your muscles not getting enough glucose to function properly.
Your eyes can also be effected by type 2 diabetes. You can have blurry vision as high
blood sugar levels pulls fluid from tissues such as the lens of your eyes making it
difficult for them to focus. Most of these vision problems will go away once diabetes
is treated, but in some cases blindness can occur if left untreated.
Diabetes also effects healing in your body. You may have frequent infections or they
may be slow healing infections and cuts. Increased yeast infections is also a warning
sign for type 2 diabetes.
Your teeth and gums can also be effected by diabetes. If you notice that your gums
are becoming red and swollen or inflamed, go and get checked by your doctor as
diabetes increases your chances of developing these issues as well as problems with
the bones that hold your teeth in place.
