An international group of doctors named eight main signs that can indicate the development of type II diabetes. Writes about this Express.
Experts advise paying special attention to the following symptoms: unexplained thirst, frequent urination, sudden weight gain or loss, tingling in the arms and legs, dizziness, vision problems, excessive fatigue, and long-term wounds or abrasions that do not heal.
According to experts, if a person has one or more symptoms from the list, then he needs to see a doctor and take a blood test. They warned that people over 40 years old, who have relatives with diabetes, or who are overweight should be especially careful.
Earlier, a group of scientists from the United States and Italy reported that excess weight is the main factor in the development of diabetes. Therefore, it is possible to prevent the onset of the disease with the help of weight loss. Most cases of type II diabetes can be prevented by keeping the body mass index below a threshold, experts say.
