I know that talking about diabetes and the damaging effect it may cause on your health is not a sexy topic. Its not the topic of conversation that most people want to talk about. But diabetes is serious business and should not be taken lightly - actually it is an epidemic. The good news is that most times diabetes is actually preventable.

Your health is very important - you only have one body so you got to treat it right. The top 3 first diabetes symptoms to look out for are:

  • Frequent urination (polyuria)-this is the body’s way of trying to flush itself of the excess glucose in the blood.
  • Frequent thirst (polydipsia) -This is the body’s way of trying to correct the fluid imbalance caused by the excess urination.
  • Frequent hunger cravings (polyphagia)-This is the body’s way of trying to force you to eat something as the cells and muscle tissues are starving from lack of energy.


Why should I be concerned?
