Diabetes is an illness that occurs when blood sugar(blood glucose) is too high which can be due to insulin resistance(Type 2 diabetes) or the inability to create insulin(Type1diabetes).
Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed during childhood.In contrast,type 2 diabetes can develop at any age but is more common in older populations.
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease that affects millions of people worldwide.Uncontrolled cases can cause blindness,kidney failure,heart disease and other serious conditions.
Before diabetes is diagnosed,there is a period where blood sugar levels are high but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.This is known as prediabetes.
It is estimated that up to 70% of people with prediabetes go on to develop type 2 diabetes.Fortunately, progressing from prediabetes to diabetes isn’t inevitable.
Prediabetes occurs when your blood sugar is identified as higher than normal,but is high enough to be type 2 among other symptoms.
Additionally,the dehydration that accompanies more frequent urination is a common cause of fatigue in diabetics.
