Other symptoms are blurred vision, dizziness, nausea and decreased endurance during exercise, often feel tired, feel itchy and inflamed skin. Patients with poorly controlled diabetes are more susceptible to infection.
Severe diabetes symptoms:
- The occurrence of weight loss
- Occur itching or pain in your feet
- Occur at the foot of the difficult wounds healed
- Loss of consciousness or coma
Because of severe insulin deficiency, before treatment, patients with type 1 diabetes almost always lose weight. Most type 2 diabetics do not experience weight loss. In type 1 diabetes, symptoms occur suddenly and can quickly develop into a state of diabetic ketoacidosis. In blood sugar levels high, but since most cells can not use glucose without insulin, these cells take energy from other sources. Fat cells is broken down fields produce ketones, which is a toxic chemical that can cause blood to become acidic (ketoacidosis).
The early symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis is thirst and excessive urination, nausea, vomiting, fatigue and abdominal pain. Breathing becomes faster because the body attempts to improve levels of blood acid. Patient breath smell like acetone.
Without treatment, diabetic ketoacidosis bias developed into a coma, sometimes within just a few hours. Even after starting insulin therapy, patients with type 1 diabetes may develop ketoacidosis if they do not to injections of insulin or experiencing stress from infections, accidents or serious ill.
Patients with type 2 diabetes may not show symptoms for several years. If the more severe insulin deficiency, frequent urination symptoms emerge and often thirsty. Ketoacidosis is rare. If blood sugar is very high (more than 1000 mg / dL), usually occur because of stress, infection or drugs, then the patient will experience severe dehydration, which can cause mental disorders, dizziness, seizures, and a condition called coma hiperglikemik -non-ketotik hiperosmolar.
