April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 234

Signs of diabetes in men:

Feeling thirsty always with frequently increasing urination. This is caused as a result from the increased of glucose level that affects the filtering functionality of renal system. The kidneys takes in too much drinking water that will cause dehydration.

The second one is weight loss; this is the actually the most common sign among all diabetes symptoms. The hormone should be the one that changes the glucose from food absorbed by the blood stream to convert into energy. Insufficient insulin level will make the 'reserve' energy under the topmost layer of the skin is continually used while the blood stream takes the increasing quantity of glucose.

One the most common diabetes symptoms in men is the level of appetite. However, as mentioned above, the normal sign would be excessive weight loss. Very few people suffering diabetes will experience such symptom. Irrespectively, the body weight will keep on decreasing even if men are eating more. The insulin is not available to modify the glucose into energy; glucose will still be glucose in the blood and the energy is not anymore produced in a sufficient number.

So what are the common signs of diabetes in women? The most common sign of diabetes in women is when a person is frequently getting thirsty and always wanting to take a gulp of water.

Also frequently urinating, especially during night time is also one of the most common diabetes symptoms in women.

Sometimes severe weight loss or weight gain.

You can also crave for more and more food or have your appetite suppressed.

Women's eyesight may become blurred.

Women may tend to experience bit numbness on their hands and feet.

Other common signs of diabetes in women can be:

Sores and a number of infections might be experience and it could take a long time to get healed. Yeast infection severe fatigue during the day and night. Frequent vaginal infections Frequent feeling of vomiting Fainting and feeling weak most of the time. Excessive sweating Trembling and dizziness when hungry

Are there any other issues when comparing with men with diabetes?

Research has shown that more women had family histories of diabetes and higher BMIs than men. Both family history of diabetes and a high BMI are known risk factors for diabetes in men and women. Obesity increases the risk of developing not only type 2 diabetes, but also hypertension, dyslipidemia, CVD, stroke, osteoarthritis, and some forms of cancer.

Reseach suggests also that psychosocial, behavioural, and clinical differences between men and women with diabetes that might affect their risk of getting diabetes, their attitudes and behaviour toward self-care for diabetes, and consequently their health outcomes.
