Dermatologists Sanjiv Saini from Edgewater, Maryland (USA) said: "Although genetic factors or hormones can cause pigmentation disorders but after noticing the dark skin, the first thing I do is first check the patient's blood glucose levels alone ".

Normally, the test results will detect blood glucose levels higher than normal, early signs of diabetes. Therefore, if you are in this stage, be reduced by at least 5 kg to reduce blood sugar levels.

"You often read the news that blurred vision is one of the symptoms of diabetes. But in fact, views can change for the better or worse ", Prof. Dr. Howard Baum diabetes specialist at Vanderbilt University (USA) - said.

"I have had patients say that their vision was improved when blood sugar levels rise. However, after starting the treatment of diabetes, they have to wear glasses again, "he said. Diabetes causes the body fluid changes, including those contained in the eyes, leading to abnormal vision.

Itching incessantly

If you think it is absurd for itchy skin that diabetes go to the doctor, then you're wrong. Diabetes impairs blood circulation, which can lead to dry skin and itching. "Some patients newly diagnosed with diabetes say they hear of me tingling in the hands, legs, feet.

A recent study from Canada showed that 23% of patients are diagnosed with sleep apnea, sleep disorders continue to develop diabetes over 5.5 years. It is unclear the relationship between snoring, sleep apnea and diabetes, but the researchers said patients may sleep disorders and breathing tend to liberate stress hormones during sleep, causing sugar in the blood rises.
