Type 1 Diabetes. Symptoms

What is type 1 diabetes
It is also called juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent.

Diabetes means that blood sugar or blood glucose is high. With type 1 diabetes, the pancreas produces no insulin. Insulin is the hormone that helps sugar or glucose into the cells for energy. Without insulin, a very high amount of sugar or glucose stays in the blood and over time this can cause serious problems for the heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, gums and teeth. Type 1 diabetes is more common in children and young people but can be diagnosed at any age.

Symptoms of type 1 diabetes
Symptoms include:
* Being very thirsty
* Frequent urination
* Feeling very hungry
* Feeling very tired (a)
* Losing weight without trying
* Keep wounds that heal slowly
* Dry and itchy skin
* Losing the feeling in your feet or having tingling in the feet
* Blurred vision

A blood test can show if you have diabetes. If that is the case, you probably have to inject insulin for the rest of his life.
