Type 1 Diabetes Symptom: Know It, As it is A Chronic Disorder

Type 1 diabetes is also known as insulin dependant diabetes or juvenile. This is a chronic (lifelong) disease that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels appropriately. This is mainly in the case of young people.

The sugar remains unbroken and thus unutilized and remains in the blood. This is because the insulin as produced by pancreas is less. In about 5 to 10 years, the insulin producing beta cells of the pancreas are completely destroyed and no more insulin is produced. This is a chronic situation. You may have blood pressure and heart troubles at later stage. You may also get gangrene and kidney troubles, blindness etc.

Some of the symptoms of diabetes type 1 are weight loss despite increased appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, fatigue, irregularity of menstruation in women. You can identify that you are diabetic with the tests. The result is:

  • Urinalysis shows glucose and ketone bodies in the urine
  • Fasting blood glucose is 126 mg/dL or higher
  • Random (non fasting) blood glucose exceeds 200 mg/dL ( this has to be confirmed with a fasting test)
  • Insulin test
  • C-peptide test is low.

Through educating the patient you can help him. The use of regular blood sugar testing, weight control, meal planning and self- discipline is really beneficial in patient's life.
