Visible Symptoms of Diabetes

~ Visible Symptoms of Diabetes ~

People can suffer from diabetes without Symptoms of Diabetesbeing aware of it but this condition can be easily identified if the symptoms of diabetes are known. Diabetes, which in medical term is more popular as diabetes mellitus, is one of the metabolic condition where the patients suffer from high sugar level in their blood. This disease has been one of the most common metabolic diseases often found in modern people nowadays in relation to the modern life style. Many people are suffering from this disease but not many realize it until it is too late even though the symptoms of diabetes are relatively easy to observe.
In general, diabetes is caused by two factors:
-if the cells of the human body cannot respond well to the insulin produced by the pancreas or
-if the pancreas in cannot produce insulin which should be there naturally.

To know whether someone is suffering from diabetes or not, the person will need to do some blood sugar tests. However, before the tests are taken, there are some symptoms of diabetes which can tell whether a person needs further diabetic treatments or not.

Talking about the general symptoms of diabetes, there are three main symptoms that people can observe in order to know whether someone is suffering from the disease or not. The three general symptoms are called Polydipsia, Polyuria and also Polydipsia.

  •  Polydipsia ( frequently increased thirst)

While Polydipsia can also be associated with other health disorders such as the use of antipsychotics or anticholinergic poisoning, this problem is generally considered as one of the main symptoms of diabetes. A person can be diagnosed for diabetes when he often feels thirsty and drinks a lot. If you often feel thirsty no matter how often and how much you drink, you might likely suffer from diabetes. And again, although the increased thirst cannot always be related to diabetes, most people suffering from this disease experience this symptom at the beginning of diabetic disorder.

  •  Polyuria (the frequent needs for urination)

The second general symptom of diabetes is called Polyuria or the increased needs to urinate. The definition of Polyuria itself is the needs to pass the urine in an abnormal amount. If you often feel the needs to urinate, you might suffer from diabetes. This frequent urination may have some relation with the increased thirst and drinking but it may not. Polyuria can come as a single evidence to diabetes so can Polydipsia. They don’t need to come together as the symptoms of diabetes although two of them often emerge simultaneously. So, even if you don’t drink much, you may need to urinate a lot if you suffer from diabetes.

  •  Polyphagia (increased hunger)

Polyphagia is often referred to as hyperphagia. It is the last of the three main symptoms of diabetes which often appears clearly in the sufferer. If a person wants to eat again and again, he may suffer from diabetes. Just like the other symptoms of diabetes, this one is not always related to the high sugar level in blood but most people with diabetes experience it. Be really cautious if you get hungry easily after your meals because you might suffer from diabetes.

If the symptoms of diabetes are early noticed the doctors can start medical treatments to avoid worse conditions and complications in the patients.
