ATTENTION: 5 Silent Diabetes Symptoms That Everyone Should Know!

Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. It has a symptom of numbness in hands and feet, constant urinating, and constantly being thirsty.

However, there are some symptoms, which shows that there is something wrong with our sugar levels.

With type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood.

Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause serious problems. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes can also cause heart disease, stroke.

Here are the symptoms of diabetes, which you could have never figured out before.


1. Changes on the skin

You will start noticing some dark patches on your skin, around your elbows, knuckles and on the back of your neck. This sign shows that your blood sugar level has risen.

Some scientist confirms that even though having some dark spots in your body might be a matter of genetics or a hormonal imbalance, still it can be also a sign of diabetes.

The high levels of insulin boosts the growth of the skin and creation of melanin, making some skin patches change color and become darker than usual.

The tests can either show that the patient already has diabetes or just has an increase in blood sugar level. In order to fight against it, the patient has to lose weight and to consult with a medical professional advisor.

2. You Snore
