Early Signs Of Diabetes You Should Know To Avoid Amputation

Diabetes is a chronic disease that has undoubtedly claimed the lives of millions of people worldwide. This is largely due to the fact that there is no cure and that it is only managed through a lifestyle that many people do not understand.

Amputation is one of the chronic stages of Diabetes and one of the most feared because no one wants to lose an arm, leg, or any other part of their body. People frequently wonder why so many diabetics require amputation.

So that's what I'm going to talk about, as well as some of the early warning signs.

Any diabetic patients have amputations as a result of diabetic neuropathy, which leads to diabetic ulcers.

It begins as a wound in the legs or arms but does not heal; it worsens by the day and eventually necessitates amputation of the affected area by experts.

Well, I'll also show you some of the early symptoms of diabetic neuropathy.

1. Numbness or tingling in the hands and legs

This occurs when not enough blood reaches those areas. Tingling and numbness in the hands and legs are usually caused by nerve damage. Excess sugar in your system gradually damages your nerves, resulting in nerve damage.

2. Hair loss in the affected area

Because of the loss of blood and nutrients to these areas, the amount of hair that grew in those areas begins to diminish.

3. Discolored skin in the affected areas

This may appear to be patches caused by the use of beaching creams, but it is not. Don't be fooled by what you see on your body. Before you confirm your suspicions, see a doctor.

4. Impaired ability to detect cold or heat in those areas

With the affected areas, the level at which you can tell if an area is hot or cold decreases but does not completely disappear.
