Diabetes is an endocrine disease caused by high blood sugar. Most of the reasons why the best treatment period is missed are because people with diabetes are not aware that they have diabetes. Therefore, it is very important for us to detect diabetes early. Early detection allows for early intervention.
Before diabetes occurs, there may be 10 symptoms, see if you’ve been hit!
A. These 10 symptoms, may be Diabetes is coming
1. General weakness
Even if there is no work or exercise that will make the body tired, sugar lovers will feel weak and fatigued no matter how much they rest. There will also be back and knee pain and weakness in the lower limbs, especially when climbing stairs.
2. Difficulty in urination
Most men with diabetes will have difficulty in urinating.
3. Vision loss
When vision loss, blurred vision, eye fatigue and other conditions occur, you should pay attention to diabetes may be in the “trouble”.
4. Numbness of hands and feet
When you have numbness in the hands and feet, it may be the peripheral neuritis caused by diabetes.
5. Itchy skin
Diabetes can also lead to severe itching of the skin, especially at night, sometimes even affecting the quality of sleep of patients.
6. Urinary tract infection
Urinary tract infections in diabetic patients are different from normal urinary tract infections. The former is caused by the urinary tract, while the latter infection usually comes from the kidneys. In addition, urinary tract infections caused by diabetes will also be slower to eliminate than normal urinary tract infections.
7. Oral and other epidermal diseases
When you feel dry mouth, thirst, burning sensation in the mouth and oral diseases such as bleeding gums and periodontitis for a long time and are difficult to cure, you are likely to have diabetes.
8. Male sexual performance is reduced
Diabetes may also reduce male sexual function and lead to sexual dysfunction.
9. Unreasonable weight loss
In the case of normal diet and no weight loss, people find a sudden weight loss and it is obvious that diabetes may have developed.
10. Constipation and diarrhea
Diabetes can also affect the nerves in the internal organs, which can lead to gastrointestinal dysfunction. Common symptoms are constipation and diarrhea, and they are difficult to disappear.
If you have one of these symptoms, remember to go to the hospital to prevent the disease from developing. Only when the disease does not progress rapidly, the possibility of cure increases.
B. Sugar lovers “three slow” health method, worth learning
1. Get up slowly
Diabetic patients, especially the elderly who suffer from deficiency of blood and Qi, insufficient blood supply to the brain and hypoxia, are prone to fainting when they get up quickly. Therefore, when changing your posture, remember to stand up slowly, stand firmly and then walk again.
2. Get up slowly
The vast majority of diabetic patients suffer from qi and blood stasis. After resting in bed, blood tends to thicken. After waking up early in the morning, it is recommended to lie in bed for a few minutes before getting dressed and getting up.
3. Defecate slowly
There are not a few people who have died of ruptured blood vessels caused by excessive defecation. It is recommended that people who are often constipated and cannot get rid of constipation within 20 minutes, do not panic when defecating.
C. Diabetes diet management, to achieve “three low and one more”
1. Low protein diet
For diabetic nephropathy patients, attention should be paid to control protein intake (the specific situation varies with individual proteinuria, can not be generalized), and reduce the intake of non-animal protein, such as mixed beans and so on.
2. Low salt diet
The study found that when the habits of life and diet are the same, the risk of diabetes increases up to two times in people who eat more salt.
The explanation given by the researchers is:
Excessive salt increases the amount of “hunger hormone”. This substance inhibits insulin secretion, making the body “resistant” and directly weakening the ability of insulin to lower blood sugar. The “hunger hormone” will make people appetite. Eat too much will naturally become fat, obesity is very bad for sugar lovers.
In addition, salt increases blood pressure, and hyperlipidemia and hypertension also aggravate blood vessel damage and increase the risk of diabetes.
Therefore, in order to prevent diabetes and control blood sugar, in addition to eating less sweets, but also remember to eat less salty food Oh.
3. Low spicy food stimulation
Most diabetic patients have the symptoms of wasting and not eating enough, and dryness is also a big sign. In the face of this situation, it is easy to consume the health of patients and aggravate the dryness and heat. Therefore, diabetic patients need to stay away from onion, ginger, garlic, chili, pepper and other foods.
4. Drink more water
In hot weather, it is important to hydrate. You should drink about 1000-1500 ml of water a day, more than the amount of urine and sweating throughout the day. If you are more active and sweat a lot, you should also continue to hydrate. In the hot summer, people with diabetes should develop the habit of “drinking water often, even if you are not thirsty”.
When drinking water, you can add some small plants that are good for diabetic health, the taste will be better.
Chicory: diuretic, slightly bitter taste, suitable for summer drinking.
Gardenia: better for the stomach and blood pressure stability.

Regular medical checkups, early detection, and finally and we emphasize that prevention is the most important!
If you want to prevent regular checkups at an early stage, find any abnormalities must go to the doctor. Once diagnosed, annual screenings are required. For those with diabetes “age” greater than or equal to 5 years, it is recommended to have regular annual checkups, including kidney function, urine protein and creatinine values. In addition, a fundus exam should be done and daily fluctuations in blood pressure should be noted.
The key to dealing with diabetes and its complications is prevention. We hope that sugar lovers will pay close attention to the changes in their bodies and have regular medical checkups!
