Diabetic Symptoms And Cures
 

Diabetes is a chronic disease that impairs the body's ability to break down sugar. This leads to the buildup of glucose which can cause a variety of complications. Foremost of these complications is the body's failure to produce insulin. Also, the buildup of glucose can cause damages to the nerves, which in turn can disrupt many essential processes in the body and rapture many vital organs in the system.

There is no doubt that diabetes is a deadly disease. But as statistics will show, it's one that is quite difficult to avoid as well. In the US alone, 9.6% of people above the age of 20, or 20.6 million individuals, are suffering from diabetes. This is a very alarming number indeed.

Though there is no known "cure" for diabetes, there are methods that are being developed to achieve that effect. These are:

* Pancreas transplantation or artificial pancreas development. The pancreas is a gland that produces the much needed insulin.
* Islet cell transplantation or artificial development. Islet cells likewise produce insulin.
* Genetic manipulation

But as they always say, an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Treating diabetes is best carried out during the early stages of the disease when the consequences can still be controlled and minimized. Such an approach will require an early determination of diabetic symptoms. These diabetic symptoms are:

* Extreme and excessive thirst that is quite abnormal
* Hunger even when meals have recently been taken
* Frequent urination
* Fatigue easily creeps in
* Excessive weight loss at such a short period of time
* Smeared vision
* Nagging impatience that has recently been developed

All these diabetic symptoms point out to complications of diabetes. Smeared or blurry vision, for example, can be telling of developing diabetic retinopathy, which is the clogging of the blood streams in the retina that can potentially lead to vision impairment. Nagging impatience can be telling of a coronary disease that resulted from the clogging of the blood streams near the heart. Frequent urination, fatigue and weight loss can be telling of diabetic neuropathy creeping in.

We can never be too sure. This is why medical professionals strongly recommend that people who are experiencing the diabetic symptoms mentioned above, especially those who come from families with a definitive history of diabetes, should seek medical help as soon as possible. The first step in treatment, after all, is the determination of a disorder, and this can only be done conclusively via professional medical aid.
