A sizeable population across the globe have diabetes. Many realise it while some are still in the denial phase, or ignore the signs that indicate towards raised blood sugar levels. One should know that diabetes is a silent killer and can affect your vessels, nerves and organs. Gone are the days when diabetes was only limited to older adults. With an erratic lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits and lack of movement, now diabetes has become common in youngsters too. It is essential to be able to recognise the early warning signs of high blood sugar and to protect yourself from future risks. This video warns us about those signs that may seem to be healthy but maybe underlying indication of diabetes. Some common signs and symptoms include: 

  • Sudden weight loss: Do not take sudden weight loss as a sign of your diet correction. The reason could be something else as the person might feel more hungry than usual, and the diet will also be double, which would not be in sync with the weight loss. 
  • More thirst: It is good to have lots of water, but excessive thirst, immediately after having a glass of water can be a worrisome sign. 
  • Tingling sensation in hands and feet: Initial signs of diabetes can also lead to a tingling sensation in hands and feet. 
  • Fatigue: Those who have borderline diabetes may feel more tired than usual. Despite a proper diet, one may feel low on energy all the time.
