8 Weird Symptoms That Could Be Early Signs of Diabetes


You might know someone who has diabetes, meaning
that you know how this disease can affect people. People who suffer from this disease need to
pay careful attention to what they eat, take medicine, and deal with unpleasant symptoms. The disease can be hereditary, but in most
cases it develops due to poor eating habits, especially for people who eat too many sweets
and drink too much alcohol. So, their blood sugar levels rise, which can
cause nerve, eyes, and kidney damage. In more advanced cases it can lead to strokes,
heart diseases and difficulties healing wounds. Due to this it’s always good to think of
ways to prevent this disease from taking over our bodies. Here are some of the early symptoms that may
indicate that you are developing diabetes: Tingling
When we have high blood sugar levels it affects our blood circulation, causing a tingling
sensation and loss of sensation in the hands and feet. Itching
People with diabetes often have experience a constant feeling of itchiness, so never
ignore a persistent itch. Difficulties healing
You may have heard that people with diabetes wounds take longer to heal because of the
decrease in blood circulation and increased blood sugar, which damages our immune system. Bruises
The appearance of bruising for no apparent reason can also be a sign. People with diabetes often develop dark patches
on the skin which can be mistaken for bruising. Fatigue
Do you feel tired all the time? This can be caused by your kidneys which work
vey hard to filter your blood. High blood sugar levels can cause scars on
your kidney’s tissue causing it to stop functioning as before. Hunger and frequent thirst
If you have an uncontrollable hunger it may indicate that your body isn’t distributing
your blood sugar correctly. And since your cells aren’t getting the
energy they need, your body thinks it needs more food to create more energy. The unprocessed sugars are expelled in your
urine, and since there’s so much of it, your body thinks it needs to drink more to
replace what it’s expelling. Weight change for no apparent reason
Due to your body’s inability to manage its blood sugar, it ends up using up your fat,
causing you to lose weight quickly. Vision problems
Elevated blood sugar levels can also damage the blood vessels present in our eyes, resulting
in blurred vision and difficulties seeing.

  1. And we all have to remember obesity is the number one factor. Eat a lot more vegetables. And another early sign is flakiness of the skin. You are what you eat. So remember everybody take pride take control and believe in you. If you catch diabetes early enough. You do not have to be on medication.

  2. As I started realizing that I relate to each symptom, I began to panic because I felt like my body just went cold and then my eyes started getting blurry until all I could see was black and squiggly color streaks. My hearing was muffled as well. Can anybody please explain this?

  3. I saw this video a couple of years ago. Saw that brownish dry skin on my daughter’s neck. Took her to the doctor and he dismissed me as if I were stupid. Fast forward to a couple of months ago and got a new doctor for my kid and she agrees this could be a warning sign of diabetes! Lesson learned! Always get a second opinion!

  4. I'm experiencing a lot of these symptoms now and I'll be 43 next month. I'm tired all the time so I started taking B12. My legs itch a lot, my face and forehead suddenly became dry and flaky, my neck has a dark spot on one side and I thought it was from a costume necklace I had previously worn because my skin is very sensitive. I'm going to use a lot more cinnamon to help and eat more vegetables. WOW…an eye opener for me. And yes…I do realize that it is not a disease.
