Common Symptoms of Diabetes
Diabetes presents itself with many symptoms. It is important to know and recognize the symptoms so that you can seek help early and avoid complications associated with the condition. All symptoms can be eased by turning to natural remedies for diabetes.
The most common symptoms of diabetes are:
- Frequent urination
- Often feeling very thirsty
- Feeling hungry even while eating
- Extreme fatigue
- Blurred vision
- Slow healing of minor cuts and bruises

Gestational diabetes often presents no outward symptoms at all. It is vital that all pregnant women are tested. It typically develops around the twenty-fourth week of the pregnancy and is only present during the pregnancy. Though it goes away after birth, it is very important that women diagnosed with the condition properly manage their glucose levels to ensure their health as well as the health of their baby.Common Causes of Diabetes
The different forms of diabetes have different causes. Type 1 diabetes is still not completely understood by conventional doctors. Type 1 is sometimes referred to as "juvenile" diabetes because it usually presents itself during childhood. The body's immune system, for unknown reasons, will attack the pancreas. The cells in the organ that produce insulin are irreparably damaged or destroyed. Without insulin the other cells in the body are incapable of using glucose as energy and it just accumulates. This begins starving the body of the energy it needs. This damages the other organs, can lead to coma and eventually death.
Type 2 diabetes is less insulin-dependent than type 1 and is known as "adult onset" diabetes. Despite the nickname, it is appearing more and more in children that fall into certain risk categories. These sufferers can often produce insulin just not enough. In other cases, their cells do not respond properly to their own insulin. Again, the body is starved of its energy source and the glucose accumulates. The biggest risk factors are being overweight and leading a sedentary life.
Managing any diabetes is difficult. The correct amount of insulin needed is a constant guessing game because it is affected by different factors each day. The food you consume, exercise levels, stress levels, your emotional as well as your general health all play a role in insulin needs. Holistic, natural remedies for diabetes actually take all of these factors into consideration in order to achieve the best results for each different diabetic patient. Nutrition Response Testing can pinpoint major places of imbalance and then works to combat the imbalances through natural means.Free Consultation for Natural Diabetes Remedies
