Type 1 Diabetes: What Are The Symptoms?

What Is Type 1 Diabetes (Juvenile)? Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition that usually starts in childhood, but can occur in adults (30 to 40-year-olds). In type 1 diabetes, the pancreas produces very little insulin. Insulin helps cells in the body convert sugar into energy. When the pancreas cannot make enough insulin, sugar starts to build up in the blood, causing life-threatening complications. Individuals with type 1 diabetes must take some form of insulin for the rest of their lives. Unusual Thirst Symptoms Unusual thirst is a very common symptom of type 1 diabetes. This condition causes the kidneys to remove excess sugar in the blood by getting rid of more water. The water is removed through urinating, causing dehydration and dehydration causes you to drink more water. Weight Loss Symptoms Patient with type 1 diabetes develop unintentional weight loss and an increase in appetite because blood sugar levels remain high and the body metabolizes fat for energy. Disrupted glucose metabolism also causes patient to feel a lack of energy and drowsy for extended periods Excess urination also cause weight loss because many calories are leaving the body in urine.

    It's possible it's related to your meds, but this is one of those things that could be anything. You really have to get a dx from your health care provider. There are places online where you can view photos of various facial rashes. I could list a differential dx, but that's useless. Cosmetically and in case it's indicative of something else, get it looked at by your health care provider.

    Some diabetics have dry skin issues but I don't think there is a definite correlation. If your bgs are always in control, I would look for some other causes. Both my daughters who are not D suffer from agutate psoraisis, where they get dry patches all over their bodies. If it lasts for a long time I would check with a Dermatologist.
