diabetes. But worse: It is estimated that five million to & # 39; South
The African had earlier diabetes (a.k.a. almost diabetes, when sugar in your blood
levels are high, but not high enough for a full blown diabetes) – and 90% of & # 39;
those people do not know that they did.
Reminded again what diabetes
Diabetes is not just one disease. In fact there are three
types & # 39; diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Many people with
Type 2 diabetes has – this happens when your body does not use insulin well and he
You can not keep your blood sugar stable blood, per Centers for Disease Control and
The Type 1 diabetes is much less common – only about 5% & # 39; those
with diabetes have type 1 – and is essentially an autoimmune disease where your
body stops insulin (and as such, can not regulate sugar in the blood sugar).
And Gestational diabetes occurs in & # 39; pregnant women – usually goes
away after birth, but can & # 39; increase your likelihood of developing
Type 2 diabetes later, according to the National Institute of Diabetes & # 39; USA
and digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).
The three types of & # 39; diabetes can easily be found by & # 39; blood
test. The text, essentially, check to see if your blood glucose (blood a.k.a
sugar) is too high. But be warned: You can not tiddijanjostikja yourself – nor & # 39;
Meter & # 39; OTC blood glucose, per NIDDK.
Unfortunately, many people are moving around without being diagnosed
diabetes or pre-diabetes because symptoms are super subtle, says Dr. Poorani

body instinctively tries to get rid of it, says endocrinologist Dr. Mary
Vouyiouklis Kellis. "The water monitor sugar, so you end high volume
loss & # 39; urine ", tispjegaha.
If you notice that you are in & # 39; helping one feel much, and often, for no
real reason – especially if you wake up a few times during the night
go – it's time to talk with your doctor, says.
2. You never stop drinking water
Does & # 39; all that peeing, dehydration is a very real
possibility. And, to make matters worse, "some patients who do not know them

add & # 39; sugar in their blood ", says Goundan. Signs & # 39; dehydration include
urine & # 39; dark color, weight loss (water) and extreme thirst.

In addition, the undiagnosed or uncontrolled diabetes can & # 39; cause
ketosis, a process in which the body uses fat instead of glucose for energy.
Ketosis release chemical byproducts called ketones, which can make your product

you do not get enough energy in your cells despite everything that emanates from sugar
through your body. "Because you can not get enough energy from sugar, your
the body burns fat and your muscles for energy, "says Kellis." The & # 39; weight loss can & # 39;
