Take Quick Action If You Have These Diabetic Symptoms!


Those early warning signs that something is not quite right with your body ... how much are they bothering you? You may have seen your health care provider and he has not been able to see these symptoms could be an indication you are heading towards type 2 diabetes. Maybe you are in the early phase of insulin resistance, or pre-diabetes, where you are feeling tired for no obvious reason. To help you see what is going on, ask yourself the following questions which may show you have diabetic symptoms:

1. Physical Signs. Do you have:

  • love handles?
  • a pot belly or belly fat?
  • a waist measurement 40 inches (100cm) for males, 35 inches (90 cm) for females?
  • the need to urinate frequently, even during the night time?
  • have a dry mouth and feel dehydrated?
  • experience frequent heartburn?
  • blurriness in your vision even if only for a few minutes?
  • tingling or "pins and needles" in your hands or feet? Commonly occurs during the night.
2. Energy Clues. Are you:
  • tired after finishing a meal?
  • feeling tired in general. Do you wake up feeling tired, or feel fatigued in the afternoon?
  • a fuzzy thinker a lot of the time?
  • irritable when you don't eat on time, you become cross?
3. Medical History. Do you:
  • have high cholesterol or triglyceride levels?
  • have a close family member with type 2 diabetes (parent, or grandparent)?
  • know if your mother had gestational diabetes?
  • know your birth-weight. Were you less than 6lbs or more than 9lbs?
  • have high blood pressure?
4. Eating Habits. Do you:
  • snack often?
  • feel hungry shortly after eating a meal?
  • have food cravings especially for sweet foods?
  • have several sugary drinks each day?
  • eat out or have fast-food several times a week?
Do you know it has been predicted that 50% of people will be pre-diabetic in just a few years. Being overweight, insulin resistant, or diabetic, increases your risk of dying of any cause at a younger age. Initial symptoms may seem minimal, high blood sugar levels and type 2 diabetes can, in the long run, make your life miserable.

If you find you are experiencing any of the above diabetic symptoms, do not hesitate to contact your health care provider. He will organize the testing of your blood sugar levels to confirm whether you have insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes.

You can try to forget about your symptoms and do nothing at all, maybe hoping it will all go away. Or you can learn about all the factors that have led you to type 2 diabetes. The more you learn the more you will be in control of your body.
