7 Signs Your Body Is Telling You It Needs Help

7 Signs Your Body Is Telling You It Needs Help

Approximately 10 percent of the US population have been diagnosed with diabetes across economic, ethnic, and social backgrounds. In addition, another 7.3 million people have diabetes but have not been diagnosed yet. 

Diabetes affects multiple systems throughout the body. It occurs when your pancreas does not produce enough insulin (type 1 diabetes) or is unable to utilize insulin efficiently (type 2 diabetes or prediabetes). When the body cannot move glucose from the bloodstream to the cells in the body to be used as energy, your blood sugar becomes too high.

Early detection is vital to decreasing the risk of long term complications, which is why it is important to know the most common symptoms of diabetes. Let’s look at the top seven symptoms associated with diabetes:

  • Frequent Urination
  • Excessive Thirst
  • Extreme Fatigue
  • Constant Hunger
  • Numbness and Tingling
  • Blurred Vision
  • Slow Healing

Conditions Associated With Diabetes

  • Heart Disease, Stroke, Hypertension, High Cholesterol
  • Obesity, Kidney Disease, Liver Diseases, Overactive Bladder
  • Fatigue, Skin Conditions, Cellulitis, Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Foot Problems, Dental Diseases, Optic Neuritis, Blood Clots
  • Hyperlipidemia, Blindness, Xerostomia, Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Nervous System Diseases, Neuropathies, Gastroparesis, Impotence
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease, Ketoacidosis, Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome
