Are there symptoms i should be aware of that may indicate i am an adult onset diabetic?

Type 2 is disorder of the way the body uses and regulates glucose and results in too much sugar in the bloodstream and can lead to disorders of the circulatory, immune system, and nervous system. In adult onset of the disease there are multiple reasons that your body cannot regulate your blood glucose levels.

  • Your pancreas is not producing enough insulin; a hormone that regulates sugar moving into your cells and out of your circulation
  • Your cells are no longer responding to insulin and so are not taking the sugar into them.

Adult onset is more common as you age and usually is caused by a sedentary lifestyle and poor diet. Signs and symptoms may include…

  • Increase in thirst
  • Urination that is frequent
  • Increase in hunger
  • Weight loss that is unintentional
  • Fatigue
  • Darkened skin in armpits and neck
  • Numbness in the hands or feet
  • Infections
  • Wounds that are slow to heal
  • Fatigue

What is the difference between the 2 different kinds of diabetics?

Type 1 diabetics have an autoimmune disease that causes their immune system to attack the cells of the pancreas that produce insulin. This results in the poor production and lack of insulin meaning the cells cannot uptake glucose properly and so it circulates and begins to have an adverse effect on various organ systems. Type 2 diabetics are also called adult onset. They become diabetic later in life due to poor lifestyle choices like inactivity, obesity, and poor diets.

What are the causes and treatment options of hormonal disruption?
