November 14 is World Diabetes Day and Texas Gulf Coast offers diabetes management with two Endocrinologists.
Both type 1 and type 2 of diabetes, if not controlled, share many similar symptoms, including:
• frequent urination
• feeling very thirsty and drinking a lot
• feeling very hungry
• feeling very fatigued
• blurry vision
• cuts or sores that don’t heal properly
People with type 1 diabetes may also experience irritability and mood changes, and unintentionally lose weight. People with type 2 diabetes may also have numbness and tingling in their hands or feet.
Although many of the symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are similar, they present in very different ways. People with type 2 diabetes may not have symptoms for many years because they develop slowly over the course of time. They may have no symptoms at all and don’t discover their condition until complications develop.
Type 1 diabetes develops fast, over the course of several weeks. Type 1 diabetes, which is known as juvenile diabetes, usually develops in childhood or adolescence. It is possible to get type 1 diabetes later in life.
Please contact our Endocrinologists at 281.604.1300 if have any of these symptoms. We see all ages.
