With the development of society and the economy shifting away from being centered on agriculture, the improvement of living standards, and the shift away from self sufficient farming families, the excessive consumption of high-sugar, high-fat diet, increased learning burden, and a general decrease in exercise have led to the growth of the obesity among the adolescence. Obesity, usually linked with the overconsumption of sugars, will trigger increased insulin compensatory secretion, insulin resistance, and finally pancreatic islet failure. Elevated blood sugar is observed, and this is the stage where it becomes diabetes. From the transition between obesity to the Prediabetes and Types 1 and 2 Diabetes, symptoms will show after about 3 to 5 years.
Symptoms of diabetes include common thirst, frequent urination, extreme hunger, irritability, fatigue and nausea, as well as other signs of intractable infection, such as blurred vision, tingling and dry skin, itching, etc. Eating more, drinking more, urinating more are the main warning signs that people with diabetes experience. At the same time, there is ironically weight and physical strength decline. However, most people with diabetes do not see significant weight loss. As long as you find you are now eating more than normal, drinking more water than normal, but your physical strength is not improving, you experience a slight decline in weight, and you are easily exhausted, you should think of seeing a doctor. Diabetes is harmful to health, so seek medical treatment in time.
