When to see a Diabetologist in Mumbai:

Many people have type 2 diabetes and not know it. Make sure to see a Diabetologist if you experience any of these diabetes symptoms.

1. Getting more thirsty than usual and urinating more often

Why is it so:

Blood sugar buildup pulls fluid out of your tissues, which makes you thirsty. Drinking more leads to urinating more often.


2. Getting hungrier than usual

Why is it so:

When insulin can’t move sugar into the muscle and organ cells, they become “starved” for energy, making you feel hungry, too.


3. Weight loss

Why is it so:

Even though you’re eating more you may be losing weight. The excess glucose your body can’t use along with the calories it represents are eliminated in your urine instead of contributing to your body weight.


4. Feeling more tired and restless than usual

Why is it so:

This happens when your body doesn’t have enough sugar for energy.


5. Blurry vision

Why is it so:

High blood sugar levels pulls fluid from the lenses in your eyes and hence you can’t focus clearly.


6. Slow healing and/or frequent infections

Why is it so:

Type 2 diabetes causes immune system deficiency, making it harder to heal and fight infections.


7. Patches of dark, velvety skin, most often in the neck and armpits

Why is it so:

This condition is often caused by obesity, which is commonly associated with type 2 diabetes.


There is no permanent cure for Type 2 diabetes, but eating healthy, exercising, and maintaining a healthy weight can help keep it under control. If these lifestyle choices aren’t enough, you may need to take diabetes medications and/or insulin treatment to your diabetes management program.


Type 2 Diabetes Risk Factors:

Obesity:

Being overweight makes it more likely that you’ll become insulin resistant and may also lead to many other health conditions.

Lack of regular exercise:

Physical activity can help you avoid type 2 diabetes, if you’re susceptible.


Family history:

Type 2 diabetes has a hereditary factor. If someone in your close family has/had it, you are more likely to develop it.


Race/ethnicity:

Certain ethnic groups are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, including African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans and Native Americans.


Advancing age:

The older you are, the more at risk you are for developing type 2 diabetes. At age 45, your risk starts to increase, and after age 65, your risk rises exponentially.


Gestational diabetes:

If you developed diabetes while you were pregnant, that increases your risk of developing type 2 diabetes later.


Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): Polycystic ovary syndrome also raises the risk for type 2 diabetes because it is related to insulin resistance. In PCOS, many cysts form in your ovaries, and insulin resistance is one possible cause. You may be insulin resistant if you have PCOS and therefore at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
