(CTN News) – When a person has type 2 diabetes, their blood glucose levels become too high, which is a sign of the disease. There are several early signs of type 2 diabetes, including increased thirst, frequent urination, and tiredness.
Type 2 diabetes is one of the most common types.
In the United States, there are more than 37 million people with diabetes, with 90 to 95% of those with type 2 diabetes.
During the early stages of type 2 diabetes, the symptoms can be mild, and the onset of the disease can be gradual. Due to this, many people may not be aware of the fact that they suffer from this disease.
The purpose of this article is to highlight the early signs and symptoms of type 2 diabetes and to explain the importance of detecting it at an early stage. In addition to discussing the risk factors for developing this disease, we also discuss the causes of it.
When blood sugar levels in the body are high, the kidneys try to remove the excess sugar from the body by filtering it out of the blood. It is possible that this can lead to a person needing to urinate more frequently than usual, especially at night.
Due to the frequent urination required to remove excess sugar from the blood, the body loses additional water due to the frequent urination. A person’s thirst may become more intense over time due to the dehydration that is caused as a result of this. As a result, it is common for people with diabetes to not get enough energy from their diets.
During digestion, food is converted into a simple sugar called glucose, which is then used by the body as a source of energy. It is known that people with diabetes experience a lack of glucose moving from the bloodstream into the cells of their body.
Due to this, individuals with type 2 diabetes often experience constant hunger, regardless of the fact that they have eaten recently. It is known that type 2 can impact a person’s energy levels and cause them to feel tired and fatigued at times.
As a result of insufficient sugar moving from the bloodstream into the body’s cells, diabetes fatigue can be caused by an excess of sugar in the blood which can cause damage to the tiny blood vessels in the eyes, which can result in blurry vision.
In one or both of the eyes, this can occur. A high blood sugar level can also lead to swelling of the eye lens as a result of high blood sugar levels.
When blood sugar levels are reduced, blurred vision may be experienced, which will improve when blood sugar levels are reduced. It is possible for a person with diabetes to lose permanent vision if they do not seek treatment for their condition, as the damage to these blood vessels will become more severe without treatment.
It is known that high sugar levels in the blood can damage the body’s nerves and blood vessels, which can result in impaired blood flow throughout the body.
