WEB DESK: It is not that one fine day you get up to realize you have diabetes. The symptoms show months before the disease picks on.
Here are 5 symptoms that might mean you have diabetes.
You feel thirstier than usual
If you have diabetes you would want to go to the bathroom to urinate a lot. And it might leave you thirstier than usual.
You’ve lost weight
Being overweight is a risk for diabetes. But once you get diabetes you are likely to lose weight. Mainly because you are losing a lot of calories due to frequent urination.
You feel sudden pangs of hunger
You crave for sugars and carbs. When you have high blood sugar, your body has a problem regulating its glucose. If you’ve eaten something high in carbohydrates, your body shoots out a little too much insulin, and your glucose drops quickly. This makes you feel shaky, and you tend to crave carbs or sugar. This can lead to a vicious cycle.
You get tired
The food you’re eating for energy isn’t being broken down and used by cells as it’s supposed to. That will leave you tired.
