Not everybody is aware of the differences between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes symptoms
Many of the Diabetes symptoms in Type 1 are very similar to Type 2 Diabetes symptoms. In both, Type 1 and Type 2 the level of glucose is very high in the blood, but the difference is that in Type 1 the transition doesn’t happen because of lack of insulin, th insulin producing cells do not exist, they have been destroyed, that is supposed to help the transition of the glucose from the blood into the body cells. In Type 2 though the body becomes resistant to the existing insulin, also the transition of the glucose from the blood to the body cells does not happen again.
Anyway, in both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes symptoms are quite similar. One of the main Diabetes symptoms would be the fact that you are visiting the bathroom quite frequently; it might seem you urinate all the time. This would be the effect of the high level of glucose in the blood. When this happens your kidneys, because of the insulin that does not exist or your body becomes resistant to it, are not able to filter the glucose back into your blood, so it is constantly drawing more water from your blood, trying to dilute the glucose. This way you will always be having a full bladder, because you will automatically drink more water and you will always be running to the bathroom.
One other of the main Diabetes symptoms is the fact that you are losing weight without wanting to. Because of an attack of a virus on the cells of the pancreas or because the autoimmune system attacks the insulin producing cells, the body will not be having insulin anymore. Glucose will not be transitioned into the body cells, so the body will desperately try to find a source of energy and it will start breaking down fat and muscle tissue for energy.
In Type 2 Diabetes symptoms of weight loss are noticeable gradually, because the resistance of the body to insulin happens gradually also. One other of the main Diabetes symptoms is feeling weak and tired and this is the effect of the glucose not being transitioned from the blood into the body cells, with the help of insulin, which is the main source of energy.
Another one of the main Diabetes symptoms is the fact that you will be feeling numbness and a tingling feeling in your extremities. The high level of glucose from the blood will damage your nervous system in time. In Type 2 Diabetes symptoms of numbness or a tingling feeling will be hardly noticeable in a long period of time. You are often not aware for many years that your blood sugar is high. This disease can be kept under control when after diagnosis a healthy diet is introduced with low fat and foods that contain a low sugar level. This way, Diabetes symptoms will not be damaging your daily life.
