Know the Symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus
As one of the most dangerous health problems found in Indonesian society, diabetes must be treated as early as possible to avoid worse effects in the future.
Diabetes often appears without symptoms. However, there are some symptoms to watch out for as a condition for the possibility of diabetes.
o In Type I DM the classic symptoms that are commonly complained of are polyuria, polydipsia, polyphagia, weight loss, feeling tired quickly (fatigue), irritability, and pruritus (itching of the skin).
o In Type 2 DM, the symptoms complained of are generally almost non-existent. Type 2 DM often appears unnoticed, and treatment is only started several years later when the disease has progressed and complications have occurred. Type 2 DM sufferers are generally more susceptible to infection, have difficulty recovering from injuries, have poorer vision, and generally suffer from hypertension, hyperlipidemia, obesity, as well as complications in blood vessels and nerves.
One of the steps that can be taken by the community to get treatment as early as possible is to know and be sensitive to the various symptoms of diabetes mellitus that appear in the body.
