Symptoms of Diabetes in Children.
Diabetes in children can be fatal if you’re not aware of the symptoms and appropriate treatment is not provided. It’s important to know the symptoms of diabetes in children so you can act quickly. 1. Feequent Urination: It can be hard to tell if your toddler is urinating more than often. But if you notice your youngster wetting their shorts (or bed) more often or complaining about needing to use the bathroom more frequently, it could be a cause for concern. 2. Excersive Thirst: The urge to drink fluids all the time also increases the need to urinate,It’s not just getting thirstier at various intervals the thirst can be continuous. If your child is always whining for another glass of juice or water, it may be more than their love of those drinks it could be they’re trying to quench their insatiable thirst triggered by diabetes. 3. Weight Loss: When your child’s body can’t regulate blood sugar levels, it will start using other sources of energy besides sugars. This means it will start burning off fats and sugars. This can result in noticeable weight loss. You should watch for symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, and abdominal pain. Do take your child to emergency room if this happens. 4. Impaired Vision. 5. Moodiness: Your child may not be acting like their usual sunny self, which could be a sign that something is happening with their blood sugars. 6. Extreme Hunger: Among the most common signs and symptoms of type 1 and 2 diabetes is extreme hunger. A child who is showing signs of diabetes will experience intense feelings of hunger, because their body isn’t producing enough of the hormone that regulates the amount of glucose in the blood. As a result, it’s not moving sugar into cells or organs, which causes a lack of energy in the organs. 7. Slow Healing Sores: A child that is suffering from diabetes will begin to show slow-healing sores. 8. Fruity smelling breath: One of the strangest symptoms of all is that diabetes can cause a person’s breath to smell fruity of all things. I suppose there are worse things than this!
