What Are the Symptoms of Diabetes?

High blood glucose levels over a prolonged period can cause a range of symptoms in individuals with diabetes. Some of the early symptoms of diabetes include:

  • increased thirst
  • frequent urination
  • Fatigue
  • blurred vision.

Other symptoms that individuals may experience include increased hunger, dry mouth, itchy skin, and slow healing of wounds. It is essential to monitor these symptoms and schedule an appointment with a healthcare professional at IM&PC New Albany for early diagnosis and proper management.


What Are the Risk Factors for Developing Diabetes?

Several risk factors may contribute to the development of diabetes - age, genetics, ethnicity, and lifestyle are some of the most common risk factors. Research also suggests that individuals who are overweight or have a history of cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure may be more susceptible to developing diabetes. Regular screenings and blood glucose monitoring can help identify any risk factors and promote effective diabetes prevention.


What Are the Different Types of Diabetes?

There are various types of diabetes, including type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes.

  • Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that results from the body's inability to produce insulin.
  • Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, stems from insulin resistance, which occurs when the body cannot use insulin effectively.
  • Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy and can lead to adverse outcomes for both the baby and the mother.

Understanding the different types of diabetes can help individuals and healthcare professionals develop effective treatment plans.


How Does Diabetes Affect the Body?

Diabetes can affect various organs and systems in the body, leading to a range of complications. High blood glucose levels can cause damage to the nerves, blood vessels, and organs, leading to heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and nerve damage. Managing diabetes effectively through regular monitoring, medication, and lifestyle modifications can help prevent or delay the onset of these complications.


How to Manage Diabetes Through a Healthy Diet and Exercises

Diet and exercise play an essential role in managing diabetes effectively. A healthy diet should be well-balanced and include plenty of whole grains, fresh fruits, and vegetables. Diet modifications should also include limiting carbohydrate and sugar intake to maintain optimal blood glucose levels. Similarly, exercise is an excellent way to control diabetes and improve physical fitness. Regular exercise can promote insulin sensitivity, which is critical in achieving optimal blood glucose control.

  • I've been seeing Jennifer Barnes for years and she is an excellent nurse practioner. She is extremely committed and caring. I just visited this facility after discovering Jenny had joined this practice. That being said this is undoubtedly the best office ever! Everyone is friendly and courteous. The lab tech drew my blood on the first stick and that says alot in my case. The facility is large and very clean with spacious waiting areas. I'm so thankful Jenny has relocated her practice here
