Managing Common Symptoms Of Diabetes 1 Diabetes Symptoms

There are plenty of diabetic symptoms to watch out for. These range from minor inconveniences to those that can impact your life significantly. Knowing and detecting symptoms of diabetes early is important because this can help prevent, or even arrest, diabetic complications. What are the symptoms of diabetes and what can I do about them? Gum infections - Gum disease can happen more often, be more severe, and take longer to heal if your blood sugar is high all the time. Glucose aside from being in your blood is also present in your saliva. When your diabetes is not managed properly, high glucose levels in your saliva will provide an environment for bacteria where they can thrive. If you believe your mouth problems are due to diabetes, see your dentist right away. However, signs of gum disease may also be absent among diabetic patients. This is why your best defense against bigger gum problems in the future is to see your dentist twice yearly for cleaning and checkup. Numbness and delayed wound healing - Diabetes is associated with nerve and blood vessel damage which can result in numbness and longer than usual healing time especially for foot wounds. When the nerves in your feet and hands are damaged and blood flow to these parts is reduced, you may not notice Diabetes Symptoms 2

cuts and blisters right away. When these lesions are left untreated, you can get a serious infection. In worst cases, you may lose a limb or get systemic infection. To prevent foot problems, wash your feet daily in lukewarm water and dry your feet gently, especially between the toes. Use a lotion to moisturize your feet and ankles and make sure to check your feet every day for blisters, cuts, sores, redness or swelling. If you have a lesion on your foot or any other problem that doesn’t heal within a few days, consult your doctor right away. Vision changes - High blood sugar increases your risk of eye problems. In fact, diabetes is the leading cause of blindness among people age 20 to 74. Diabetes, when it is not managed properly, causes the lens of your eyes to swell. This affects your ability to see. To correct this problem, you need to bring down you blood sugar back to ideal levels. It can take as long as three months after your blood sugar is well controlled to notice improvements in your vision. If you have diabetes, visiting your eye doctor regularly is important to avoid eye problems. 3 Diabetes Symptoms
