Unfortunately signs of diabetes type 2 can stay for years and the sufferer may not even know of his medical condition. Type 2 diabetes develops gradually
Following are some of the signs of diabetes type 2
In diabetes, excessive sugar builds up in the blood so extra fluid is pulled up from the tissues to dilute the sugar consistency. This makes a person thirsty. The result is that diabetics have to drink and then urinate more often.
There is a shortage of insulin so sugar cannot move into the cells. The organs and muscle start to starve from energy. This triggers appetite.
Instead of eating more often the body starts to lose weight. The cells are unable to use glucose. The body then has to use the energy stored in muscle as fats. The consumed calories are lost with urine.
If the cells of the body are deprived of energy, the person fell more irritable and tired.
Blurriness in Vision
If the level of blood sugar is high the fluids of the eye are pulled from lens. This affects the ability of the eye to focus.
Diabetes type 2 affects the ability of the skin to heal and resist against recurrent infections.
Darkened Skin Patches
Another sign of diabetes type 2 is that sufferer has patches of velvety dark skin in the creases and folds of the bodies. This is more common in neck and armpits.
