As a parent, I’m genuinely concerned for the health and future of my children (as I’m sure you are). Diabetes can be a very destructive disease, and that’s why it’s important to exercise and eat right. Symptoms of diabetes are often subtle and can go on unnoticed, which is why it’s important to get your check your blood sugar levels regularly and make adjustments of insulin, food, and physical activities to maintain normal sugar levels.

    Below are some symptoms of type 1 diabetes; but always consult with a health care professional if you are experiencing any of these. You can always help fight the cause at: Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation

    The symptoms of type 1 diabetes are often subtle, but they can become severe. They include:

    • Increased thirst
    • Increased hunger (especially after eating)
    • Dry mouth
    • Nausea and occasionally vomiting
    • Abdominal pain
    • Frequent urination
    • Unexplained weight loss (even though you are eating and feel hungry)
    • Fatigue (weak, tired feeling)
    • Blurred vision
    • Heavy, labored breathing (Kussmaul respiration)
    • Frequent infections of the skin, urinary tract, or vagina

    Signs of an emergency with type 1 diabetes include:

    • Shaking and confusion
    • Rapid breathing
    • Fruity smell to the breath
    • Abdominal pain
    • Loss of consciousness (rare)

    How Is Type 1 Diabetes Diagnosed?

    If your health care provider suspects type 1 diabetes, he will first check for abnormalities in your blood (high blood sugar level). In addition, he may look for glucose or ketone bodies in the urine.

    There is currently no way to screen for or prevent the development of type 1 diabetes.
