Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes

Diabetes is a serious illness where there is a persistently high glucose level in the bloodstream. Glucose (blood sugar) is the primary source of energy for the cells in our body, and diabetes occurs when the glucose level is not regulated properly by the hormone known as insulin.

Common symptoms of diabetes include:

  • frequent trips to the bathroom
  • unquenchable thirst
  • weight loss
  • fatigue and weakness
  • numbness or tingling sensation in the hands, feet or legs
  • blurred vision
  • dry or itchy skin
  • frequent infections or cuts and bruises that take a long time to heal

When these signs are associated with diabetes, they are the result of high glucose levels in the body. If you notice any of the above signs, schedule an appointment with your family doctor. Blood tests will be able to tell you if you have reason to be concerned about a diagnosis of diabetes.

Causes of Diabetes

There are two common types of diabetes:

  • Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body does not produce any insulin on its own. Type 1 diabetes has often been considered a childhood problem, but it can also develop in adults. This form of diabetes requires regular insulin injections for survival, and there is currently no known cure.
  • Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin or when there is an insulin deficiency. This type of diabetes can often be managed with regular exercise and a proper diet.

Thus far, medical scientists have been unable to pinpoint the exact causes of diabetes. However, there are certain factors which may increase the risk of developing diabetes, and therefore an individual must try to overcome them. The most common causes are:

  • obesity
  • smoking
  • having a family history of diabetes
  • eating an unbalanced diet
  • regularly consuming too much sugar, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins
  • emotional stress
  • age
  • certain virus infections such as the Coxsackie B virus

Using Exercise as a Home Remedy for Diabetes

Obesity is one of the main causes of diabetes. Most people with Type 2 diabetes are 30 to 60 pounds overweight. For them only losing this excessive weight can control their Diabetes. Muscle building and weight training can play an important role in Diabetes control. Having more muscle and less fat reduces the insulin intake requirement.

  • Taking a brisk walk for about 45 minutes each to 1 hour each day helps normalize body weight. It can also help correct insulin resistance which is the main problem in Type 2 diabetes.
  • 10 to 40 minutes of Yoga each day can help to relieve stress, which is a contributing factor for Type 2 diabetes.

If you exercise everyday and are taking insulin injections, you should monitor your blood sugar level closely since exercise may allow you to cut down your insulin by 30 to 50 percent.

    Hello. My family doctor had prescribed me with insulin but I hesitated to start injecting insulin.
    I did a little Google search and found this home remedy from a herbalist in India. I started with this combination of ingredients:
    1) Boiled egg.
    2) Bitter Gourd juice.
    3) Fennugreek seed powder and leaves.
    4) Kawasiya powder.
    I'm not sure what is biological name of Kawasiya.
    After starting the ingredients mentioned above, my blood glucose level spiked for five days and I was little nervous with the effects. But starting from the 8th day of starting this home remedy, my BGL reduced dramatically to normal range. I had a few more than normal bowel movements which also helped a lot. After 2 months of using this remedy, my lab blood report was much better.
    I didn't need to take insulin and now very rarely do I take my tablets. My diet is quite normal like others but I have restricted junk food consumption. The reason I'm posting my comment is, I feel above ingredients can also help others. Please try this home remedy. I hope it will help you too.

    Hi, I knew that taking 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar works for too much of calcium deposits in your bones. My blood sugar level is high usually in the morning. I was at 10.1 last night before bedtime. I took 1,1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar with one tsp of Stevia in 8 oz of hot water this morning. My left shoulder was very tight and now I can move it better. I checked my blood sugar and, wow, it's at 8.0. I feel much better! I eat about 5 fruits a day also I'm taking 500 mg of Meliform 3 time a day. So by taking apple cider vinegar, this should help me get off the meds or will it stay with me always?
    It was this year around X-Mas that I was diagnosed with diabetes. My doctor gave me 2.5 mg of Glyburide twice a day. It took me from 22 down to 10.1 in the morning and at noon, it was 8.0 and in the evening at supper would go down to 6. I was working at the time and I started to get all these side effects - I counted 27 side effects. Plus it made me gain weight and I gained about 10 lbs. I had a hard time losing it. I'm a very natural cure person and believe that I can cure this diabetes and stay off meds for life through natural treatments. I just turned 53. I stay at home now but I work around the house and outside and try to keep busy. My husband is also diabetic. He takes 850 mg pill twice daily. Is there any recipe using apple cider vinegar that I can make to keep me on track. - Johanne

    @Kavya, my mother also has hypoglycemia and at times her blood sugar levels drop suddenly. She always carries some sort of snack or food with her and eats something at very regular intervals, usually after every two hours, which has helped her a lot. Hope it helps you too. Good luck!

    Hi, I suffer from hypoglycemia usually at night or early morning. Even though I eat a proper dinner, but by 6:00 am I can't wake up since my sugar levels get too low. I couldn't work and had to leave my job and am not working for the past 4 years. I got another job now but I'm worried that what would I do if I get low sugar levels at work? Please suggest whatever may help. Thanks!

    @Bibhuti Thakur I would recommend you to go for a proper diet and workout plan because only taking medicine wouldn't be that much effective but if you follow a diet and workout plan. I am sure you will get better much faster. Also instead of going for any chemical medicine go for a herbal one.
