Diabetes is a serious medical condition that hinders the body from effectively using its glucose or blood sugar levels. Glucose is an essential source of energy for our body and brain. Glucose pumps energy to cells that build up our tissues and muscles. Diabetes isn’t contagious but can lead to a number of critical conditions including vision loss and even death if not treated on time.
Diabetes exists in two variants: Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes. The symptoms of type 1 diabetes crop up quickly and can easily be acknowledged whereas the signs of type 2 diabetes show up fairly late and might go unnoticed until it is too late.
What are the signs and symptoms of diabetes?
Most of the signs and symptoms of both variants of diabetes are the same. They include –
- Increased urination
- Increased thirst
- Increased appetite
- Fatigue and tiredness
- Vision problems
- Numbness in the hands or feet
- Injuries that take too long to heal
- Sudden weight loss
If you have been experiencing some or all of these symptoms for a while already, it is best to visit a doctor at the earliest.
What are the main causes of Diabetes?
Type 1 diabetes is known to occur when the body’s immune system starts attacking beta cells in the pancreas which are responsible for producing insulin. Scientists claim that type 1 diabetes is caused due to a number of genetic and environmental factors such as viruses.
Understanding the Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes can be caused due to the following reasons –
Overweight / Obesity: Being overweight or obese greatly increases your risk of being affected by type 2 diabetes. Excess body fat increases insulin resistance in the body. Fat deposits in the belly are strongly linked to insulin resistance. The lack of physical activity is also a prime reason for both obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Insulin resistance: Type 2 diabetes can occur when the fat cells, liver or muscles are not able to use up insulin adequately. Because of this, the body starts demanding more insulin to help glucose reach the cells. Initially, the pancreas starts pumping more and more insulin to help keep up with the demand but drastically slows down over time.
Genes: Some ethnic groups such as native Hawaiians, Hispanics, Native Alaskans, Asian Americans, and American Indians are known to be more prone to diabetes than others.
How does Diabetes affect the skin?
Diabetes can take a toll on your skin and you might be affected by skin problems such as –
- Bacterial infections (Styes, nail infections)
- Fungal infections (ringworm, jock itch, athletes foot)
- Spots on the skin (Diabetic dermopathy)
