Early Symptoms Of Diabetes

What are the symptoms of diabetes? Although the signs of diabetes can begin to show early, sometimes it takes a person a while to recognize the symptoms. This often makes it seem like signs and symptoms of diabetes appear suddenly. That’s why it’s important to pay attention to your body, rather than simply brushing them off. To that end, here are some type 1 and type 2 diabetes symptoms that you may want to watch out for: If you’re experiencing frequent urination your body might be telling you that your kidneys are trying to expel excess sugar in your blood. The resulting dehydration may then cause extreme thirst. Along the same lines, the lack of available fluids may also give you dry mouth and itchy skin. If you experience increased hunger or unexpected weight loss it could be because your body isn’t able to get adequate energy from the food you eat. High blood sugar levels can affect blood flow and cause nerve damage, which makes healing difficult. So having slow-healing cuts/sores is also a potential sign of diabetes. Yeast infections may occur in men and women who have diabetes as a result of yeast feeding on glucose. Other signs of diabetes Pay attention if you find y Continue reading >>

    Type 2 in younger people.. (approx 25-35 years old)

    I was just wondering how many here are younger type 2s?
    I am 29 years old and probably had diabetes for 3 years prior to my actual diagnosis.
    How old were you at diagnosis?
    How long have you had it?
    What was your A1C when diagnosed?
    I am getting so sad and discouraged about all the reading I'm doing that most people w/ diabetes don't make it longer than 20+ years. I know there are people who DO but it seems to be the exception and not the rule. If that is the case, am I really going to die before 50?? Really? I find that so hard to accept.
    I'm having a hard time right now and just looking for some insight, thoughts, experiences or SOMETHING.
    I've tried searching for stats and things like that on people diagnosed younger but I'm not coming up with much. I know stats don't mean everything but I'd like to see SOMETHING positive.
    SIGH!

    SIGH! Don't accept it. It is wrong. Most people do not die in 20 years, or even more than 20, from diabetes. It runs in my family and my diabetic 80+ year old father and aunt are both alive and mostly complication free. Take medication, keep an active lifestyle, eat healthy; those will usually prevent complications and lead to a long life. Many of us feel diabetes was actually a wake up call and we will live longer healthier lives because of it.
