Pay attention to any signals of possible diabetes symptoms that your body sends.
These diabetes symptoms may cause serious health problems if you have diabetes and you do not treat it.
The famous Tom Hanks – Oscar winner and Hollywood actor has confessed a few days ago that he was “a complete idiot”.
In fact, Hanks was three years ago diagnosed with diabetes type 2.
Moreover, the famous actor believes that he got the disease as a result of his poor and unhealthy diet.
“I was trying.
You’ve seen me in the movies and you know what I looked like.
I was a complete idiot,” said Tom Hanks in an interview with Radio Times.
Hanks himself considered part of “the lazy American generation”, as he put it.
Diabetes type 2 is the most common form of the disease and includes about 90 percent of all diagnosed cases.
People get diabetes type 1 relatively abrupt and can be identified by unexplained weight loss.
Diabetes type 2 occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin to properly function or the body’s cells do not respond to insulin.
Therefore, glucose remains in the blood and is not used as a motor fuel for the body.
Can we recognize diabetes symptoms before they hit us?
What are the diabetes symptoms and signs?
-1. Increased thirst
A sudden attack of thirst is one of the most obvious symptoms of diabetes type 2.
Some people may feel increasing of thirst in a short period of time.
However, it can be a sign of increased blood glucose levels, which stimulates the center in the brain that signals thirst.
Not specified, but important sign of diabetes symptoms is a general feeling of fatigue.
The sense of exhaustion may occur in the case of diabetes when blood sugar levels are low.
At the same time, there is not enough “fuel” for cells in the body.
However, weakness and fatigue can occur due to many other medical conditions, such as anemia or depression.
Therefore, weakness and fatigue are not the most reliable indicators of diabetes.
