Type 2 diabetes's short-term consequences and symptoms

 

 

Some diabetes-related short-term consequences are a serious disorder that can impact you from head to toe. Even still, many people are unconcerned with their health. It's possible that this is due to the fact that the prevalence of this disease has skyrocketed in recent decades.  

When you've been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, it's critical to keep your blood sugar levels under control by eating well, living a healthy lifestyle, and taking your prescriptions on time. It may increase the danger of life-threatening illnesses if left untreated. Those who have had diabetes for a long time are at a greater risk. Learning about the risks of diabetes may enable you to take the necessary precautions to avoid the situation and manage it when it arises. Here are some diabetes-related problems. 

  

Hypoglycemia: 

A dip in blood sugar level below the usual mark is referred to as hypoglycemia. When blood sugar levels fall below 70 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter), symptoms such as shakiness, dizziness, and acute sickness appear. Excess insulin medication or less carbohydrate intakes in a day are the most typical causes of hypoglycemia. Both of these things have the potential to raise blood sugar levels to hazardous levels. If the person is left alone, he or she may fall into a coma. Eat a proper amount of carbohydrates each day and take drugs as directed by a doctor to avoid this problem.

Hyperglycemia:  

A high blood sugar level is referred to as hyperglycemia. The level of glucose in the blood rises to dangerously high levels in this illness. It could be caused by a shortage of insulin. Vomiting, extreme appetite and thirst, rapid heartbeat, eyesight issues, and other symptoms occur when blood sugar levels rise above 180 to 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). If you see any of these symptoms, you should see your doctor right once. He or she may prescribe medication to restore normalcy. 

  

Diabetic ketoacidosis:  

Ketoacidosis, also known as diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), is a life-threatening condition that affects diabetics. It occurs when the body begins to break down fat at a faster rate than usual. It gradually has an effect on the body's insulin levels, causing them to decline. In this instance, the body begins to break down fat in order to generate energy. Ketones are created throughout the process, causing the blood to become acidic. To get rid of ketones (a waste product), the body produces more urine, which causes you to go to the bathroom more frequently. Even then, the body is unable to control the ketones, and they begin to build up in the blood, resulting in ketoacidosis. Shortness of breath or heavy breathing, severely dry mouth, nausea, and vomiting are all signs that require emergency medical attention. 

Hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state:  

This is an uncommon disorder that primarily affects older folks or those who have a concomitant illness or infection. The blood sugar level rises too high, yet there are no ketones present. Vision loss, hallucinations, weakness down one side of the body, confusion, and excessive thirst are all possible symptoms. To avoid this, it's a good idea to check your blood sugar levels on a regular basis.
