Signs Of Diabetes

QUESTION: What are the signs of diabetes?

ANSWER:

Diabetes is a chronic disease in which the body does not produce enough insulin. Diabetes, when left untreated, has been linked to other health problems such as heart disease and kidney failure. At the present time, diabetes is not a curable disease but it is a controllable disease provided you recognize the early warning signs of diabetes and then seek treatment immediately.

There is a long list of the warning signs of diabetes. The following are some of the ones I experienced when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Once these symptoms were recognized, I went to see my family doctor who verified for me what I already suspected.
  • Rapid weight loss – Even though I ate the same types of food I began losing weight.
  • Increased Hunger – After each meal I was still very hungry and would eat more.
  • Thirsty – I could not drink enough water to satisfy my thirst.
  • Frequent urination – It seemed like I was making frequent trips to the restroom.
  • Tiredness – No matter how much sleep I received, I remained tired.
  • Tingling in the Hands and feet – My hands and feet often felt like they were numb.
Additional signs of diabetes include blurry vision, sores that do not heal, and in extreme cases spells of unconsciousness. The warning signs of diabetes vary from person to person as well as from Type 1 to Type 2 diabetes.

Seeking help
The best thing that you can do for yourself if you are experiencing any the signs of diabetes is to seek out the advice of your family physician. Your family physician can administer a blood test which can indicate what you sugar levels have been like over the last three months as well as how well your pancreas is working. From the blood test, your physician can find out if you truly have diabetes or not.

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

Yes, I want to follow Jesus

I am a follower of Jesus

I still have questions
