Managing Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms

Author: Roger Thompson

Type 2 diabetes symptoms are quite varied but they still need to be managed in order to prevent many of the health problems that you could potentially face.

The symptoms of type 2 diabetes due to high blood sugar may include:

. Increased thirst

. Increased hunger (especially after eating).

. Dry mouth.

. Frequent urination.

. Unexplained weight loss (even though you are eating and feel hungry).

. Fatigue (weak, tired feeling).

. Blurred vision.

. Headaches.

. Loss of consciousness (rare).

Contact your health care provider if you have any of the following type 2 diabetes symptoms or if you have further questions about type 2 diabetes. It's important to get diabetes testing and start a treatment plan early to prevent serious diabetes complications. Type 2 diabetes is usually not diagnosed until health complications have occurred. Most often, there are no diabetes symptoms or a very gradual development of the above symptoms of type 2 diabetes. In fact, about a third of all people who have type 2 diabetes don't know they have it.

Other symptoms of type 2 diabetes may include:

. Slow-healing sores or cuts.

. Itching of the skin (usually around the vaginal or groin area).

. Frequent yeast infections .

. Recent weight gain.

. Velvety dark skin changes of the neck, armpit and groin, called acanthosis nigricans.

. Numbness and tingling of the hands and feet.

. Decreased vision.

You need to check your blood sugar several times a day in order to get a better idea of when the numbers fluctuate to an unsafe range, so that you can make changes in your diet or medication. This will also help your doctor be able to take better, more complete care of you. For this reason, you need to document the levels if your machine does not have a built-in memory. It is also important to observe your food intake. Herein you should keep a food diary. This, along with your blood sugar testing results, can provide a much clearer picture for your physician when they are taking into consideration your medical status so that they can help you to more easily manage your type 2 diabetes symptoms. You will also be able to find patterns here in your food intake that will help you to discover ways in which to change your diet so that you can keep yourself healthier and your blood glucose levels more stable.

Your prescriptions need to be taken as instructed or you will not obtain the results that you need in managing your type 2 diabetes symptoms. So, make sure that you understand the information that your doctor gives you about the prescription in order that you can be sure that you take it exactly as your doctor wants you to. Another important part of managing your type 2 diabetes symptoms lies in becoming physically active. There are many different benefits to exercising such as helping your body to run more efficiently, which in turn can truly influence your blood sugar. If you find activities that you enjoy doing, like walking, running, biking or playing tennis, basketball, etc. you will be able to have fun giving your body one of the tools that it needs to keep you healthy. All it takes is 30 minutes a day.

In order to manage your type 2 diabetes symptoms you will also need to change your lifestyle and habits. This is well worth the extra time and effort that this takes because it can help you to stay healthier longer. So, monitor and document your food and blood sugar levels, take your medications as prescribed and get some exercise in order to reduce many of your type 2 diabetes symptoms.

    Headaches, Dizziness (mostly after eating), blurred vision…whats wrong?
    For the past week i’ve had headaches off and on pretty often, about 2 days ago i started getting slightly dizzy along with my headaches. and now I’m just having dizzy spells throughout the day (i had 2 today). also, my eyes have been sort of taking a minute to focus when i turn my head. (only when i have the dizzy spells)

    TODAY the minute i sat down for lunch and started eating, i got dizzy . I was fine up until then, and thats when they started up. I thought maybe the eating could have something to do with it? (blood sugar,, idk?)

    The dizzyness has been going on for a few days, and the headaches are still coming once in a while. What could this be? Should i wait it out longer or go to the doctor?

    also, i have contacts. but havent changed the prescription very recently and can see fine usually. Can this have anything to do with it or no?

      have you been eating any foods with a vast amount of salt.? to much fast food.? also this can be found in teens under the influence.? smoking to be exact.? other than that i believe your fine went away in about a week for me

    What is causing my blurred vision after meals?
    I’ve noticed recently that i after i’ve eaten a big meal, my eyesight goes all blurry. It only lasts a few minutes, but it’s worrying.
    Can anyone give me an idea of why this happens?
    Has anyone experienced the same?

    • dontalkwalk says:

      Sound like you could have hypoglycimia it’s a disorder that causes your body to have a difficult time processing sugar,(my dad has it)

      Check your blood sugar after meals or check with your doctor.

      It can be cured with a rigurus vegitarian diet.

      Hope this helps

    I have been having blurred vision or sensitivity to light and ringing in my ears after eating.?
    It comes on a little while after I eat and last several hours. Sometimes is goes away for a week or two then returns. I can’t relate it to something that I specifically eat.

      My suggestion is see a doctor before you get all the WRONG answers here. Ringing in the ears, blurred vision sounds like something serious and not food related. If it were me I would make a Doctor’s appointment.

    After eating one bite of frosting my mouth tingled and vision blurred. What could cause this?
    It has happened before and only with frosting. No other sweets cause this. The roof of my mouth tingles and my eyes feel like they are going to roll back into my head.

  5. Sarah says:

    why am i getting blurred vision, particularly worse after eating?

    • rachelle dianne says:

      There are many causes of having a blurred vision. You should consult a doctor that check your eyes so that it will be treated immediately and diagnose what is the cause of blur.
