    Share

    Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset or noninsulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar. It is more common in adults due to lifestyle.

    There are early symptoms which can be observed and should never be ignored. To know these symptoms, read below an excerpt of an article that talks about the early signs and symptoms:

     

    Warning Signs of Type 2 Diabetes

    1. Frequent urination (polyuria): If you notice that you have to urinate more often, and you wake up during the night (sometimes several times) to empty your bladder, this could be a warning sign.
    2. Excessive thirst (polydipsia): This symptom links with the previous one. As you lose more fluids, the body will try to replenish them, hence the constant need to drink.
    3. Increased hunger (polyphagia): Due to extreme highs and lows in blood sugar levels, the body develops a sudden urge to eat. The cells don’t get enough glucose, so you crave it.
    4. Dry mouth: You experience a lack of moisture in the mouth, which can be both unpleasant and dangerous. Dry mouth can become a breeding ground for bacteria and cause different oral and dental problems. Gum diseases are a known complication of diabetes.
    5. Unexplained weight loss or weight gain: As insulin can’t get glucose into the cells, the body reacts as if it would be starving and starts using proteins from the muscles.

     

    There you have it. If you notice or experience any of the mentioned signs and symptoms, it is recommended that you see your health provider or doctor.
