- Slow Healing Process
If you have open wounds on your skin and it seems like forever to heal, it might be because your high blood sugar increases inflammation and also leads to poor circulation, not allowing the open cut wound to be healed by rushing blood towards it. This would mostly happen on your feet, as they’re the first thing we feel with poor circulation.
- Dark Patches of Skin
This condition is medically known as “acanthosis nigricans”, which in latin means dark patches of skin with a velvety texture. They usually appear where the skin is folding in our body parts, such as the armpits, inside the elbows, behind the knees and on the knuckle on the fingers. This condition can also attack an average person, but it’s most commonly treated as an early diabetes syndrome.
- Unexplainable Weight Loss
We spoke about increased hunger as an early diabetes symptom. If you have this and still are not gaining weight, even more – you’re losing weight, you definitely have diabetes and should consult your doctor for a preventive treatment. This doesn’t actually mean you’ve lost weight, but you lose liquids from your body, which are the first things your body releases when its sugar levels are high.
- Vision Problems :
When you have low vision and are unable to read some texts, it indicates changes due to age or diabetes. Vision problems are very common symptoms of metabolic disorders, which many people are unaware of.
