Early Stage Diabetes: 9 Common Symptoms

Diabetes is a chronic disease characterized by blood sugar levels that are consistently higher than usual due to a deficiency or resistance to insulin, leading to disturbances in blood sugar metabolism. This condition not only reduces the quality of life but also affects the life expectancy and life of the patient. That's why early recognition of diabetes symptoms and treatment is so important, especially when the symptoms are often vague and easily confused with other conditions.

Early Stage Diabetes: 9 Common Symptoms

9 early symptoms of diabetes

Early-stage diabetes symptoms may include:

Frequent urination

When blood sugar is high, your kidneys expel excess sugar from your blood, causing you to urinate more often. Therefore, one of the early diabetes symptoms is frequent urination (about 4-7 times in 24 hours).

Excessive thirst

While the kidneys work overtime and you urinate more often, valuable fluids are drawn out of the tissues. Frequent urination will cause the body to lose water, so you feel thirsty and have to rehydrate constantly. The average person needs about 2 liters of water daily, but people with diabetes can drink more than 4 liters/day.

Tired

When blood sugar is high, your body must work hard to eliminate the excess sugar. Not only does this process affect your body, but it also changes how your body uses glucose for energy. Excessively high blood sugar has the effect of causing fatigue, among other symptoms.

Blurred vision

High blood sugar can damage the eye's tiny blood vessels, leading to a swollen lens. Your vision may return to normal or worsen as blood sugar rises and falls. This condition can be cured if detected early and treated to stabilize blood sugar levels.

Excessive hunger

This is one of the early signs of diabetes. When blood is high, your body actively tries to eliminate it. Because your body excretes too much of the glucose you get from food, hunger may increase.

Slowly healed cuts and wounds 

Damaged blood vessels result in impaired blood circulation. As a result, it will be harder for blood to reach the affected area, and minor cuts or wounds will be difficult to heal, which can take weeks or months. This slow healing process makes unhealed cuts and wounds more susceptible to infection, increasing the risk of amputation.

Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet

High blood sugar can significantly affect the nerves. This damage begins with pain or numbness and can worsen into pain or neuropathy over time.

Skin color change

Insulin resistance can cause the skin to develop atopic dermatitis (acanthosis nigricans), which often appears in wrinkles in the neck, armpits, or groin. This dark area can be raised and has a velvety smooth texture.

Yeast infection

Blood sugar and excess sugar in urine create an ideal environment for yeast to grow. Yeast can feed on extra sugar in the genital areas and the mouth or armpits. Maintaining blood sugar levels helps reduce the risk of yeast infections.
