Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes

Signs and symptoms of type 1 diabetes can appear quickly and may include:

 Increased thirst and frequent urination. As excess sugar builds up in the blood, fluid is pulled from your tissues. This may leave you thirsty. As a result, you may drink - and urinate - more than usual. And the following are the symptoms of type 1 diabetes

 Extreme hunger:

Without enough insulin to move sugar into the cells, your muscles and organs are depleted of energy. This triggers intense hunger that may persist even after you eat. Without insulin, the sugar in your food never reaches lack energy for your tissues.

 Weight loss:

Despite eating more than usual to relieve hunger, you may lose weight - sometimes rapidly. Without sugar supplies energy, your muscle tissues and fat stores may simply reduce.

 Fatigue: If your cells are deprived of sugar, you may become tired and irritable.

 Blurred vision:
If your blood sugar in the blood is too high, fluid may be pulled from your tissues - including the lenses of your eyes. This can affect your ability to focus clearly. Consult your doctor if you are concerned about diabetes or if you notice signs and type 1 diabetes symptoms.
