Diabetes is a condition that is usually known as a silent killer. In this condition, the body is either not able to produce the needs insulin or resists the insulin the body does produce. There are various treatments available to take care of this condition, eventually, your destiny and prognosis lie in your hands, and it depends on how well you take care of yourself and manages your condition.

It is known as a silent killer, because most often in the initial period there won’t be any alarming symptoms at all, even the sufferer gets accustomed to this situation. So until and unless one goes for screening with lab investigation, it is impossible to diagnose diabetes. Even the symptoms will differ from person to person according to the level f sugar found in the blood. However, some of the common alarming symptoms of diabetes are;

In a diabetic person the body is inefficient and many times unable to use glucose for fuel. In this case, the body switches over to metabolizing fats incompletely or completely as a source of fuel. In this process, the body uses more energy and results in feeling fatigued or tired.

A diabetic person is always unable to process many of the calories into the food that they eat. Hence, they may apparently lose weight even though they are having an appropriate amount of food. Frequently urinating loses sugar and water from our body and may result in weight loss. High blood sugar resists the growth of white blood cells (WBCs) that are responsible for our immune system. When these cells in the body do not function accordingly it affects the wound healing ability of that person.
