Today’s topic is about the symptoms you may have if you have type 1 diabetes.
There are 10 main physical indications that you may have type 1 diabetes, that include:
- Increased thirst
- Frequent urination
- Bedwetting in children who previously didn’t wet the bed.
- Extreme hunger
- Unintended weight loss
- Blurred vision
- (Girls) Having regular bouts of thrush ( yeast infections)
- Slow healing cuts and grazes
Later signs so need urgent medical care is needed when you have:
- A loss of appetite
- Nausea or vomiting
- A high temperature
- Stomach pain
- Sweet smelling breath for no reason (you are usually unable to smell it yourself)
Disclaimer: Anything I say regarding diabetes, don’t take it as the holy grail as I am no expert and I’m just trying to figure it out as I go, and if you have any queries make sure to ask your local diabetic team.
I have also done a Youtube video on the topic linked below.
