Most diabetics have signs and symptoms early on, but not all. So first of all, you may not have any signs. But the most common early sign is increased thirst, which is, naturally, followed by increased urination, especially during the night. You may also experience dry mouth, increased appetite and unusual either weight gain or weight loss. Also common is blurred vision and fatigue.
There are risk factors for becoming diabetic, one being heritably, which you can’t control, but others you can. Increased weight, having a sedimentary lifestyle and smoking are the biggies, but also eating a lot of red meat and processed high fat dairy help to increase your blood sugar levels.
So, put out that cigarette, walk the dog and have a chicken salad for lunch!!!
