Is there a way to find out if you have diabetes? Most of your early symptoms are caused by high levels of glucose, a type of sugar, in your blood. If you don't pay attention to the warning signs, they might not be there at al. That's especially true if you have type 2.
It may be a while before people with type 2 diabetes notice that their blood sugar is too high. This is because their bodies show signs of being resistant to insulin. Learn how to read your body's signs that you have too much sugar in your blood.
There are signs that something is wrong with your neck and armpits.
Skin that is darker than the rest and feels like velvet.
It could be because you have too much insulin in your blood if you have a dark patch of velvety skin on the back of your neck, armpit, groin, or somewhere else. This is often a sign of pre-diabetes, but it doesn't always happen.
The medical name for this skin condition is acanthosis nigricans, or dark spots on the skin. Almost half of diabetic patients don't know they have the condition and don't follow a treatment plan to keep their blood sugar levels in check.
Patches on your skin that are yellow, red, or brown (Necrobiosis Lipoidica)
Initially, it looks like a pimple, but then it turns into swollen, hard, and raised bumps on the surface of the skin. Patches can be yellow, reddish, or brown in color, and they can also be white. If they are red, swollen, and hard, they are called necrobiosis lipoidica. The skin around it is shiny and sometimes painful. It rises and falls in terms of how busy it is.
The tags on your skin
Many people have skin tags, which are small growths that hang from a stalk. Many skin tags on your neck and armpits may be a sign that you have too much insulin in your blood or type 2 diabetes.
It's important to see a dermatologist at the right time.
There are many other skin problems that can happen if you have diabetes, as well. Most skin problems aren't dangerous, but even a small one can be very bad for people who have diabetes. It's important to see your dermatologist right away if you have two or more of these symptoms on your body.
