Diabetes Mellitus
How can you tell if you have diabetes?

Dry hands are a frequently observed symptom of diabetes. As are excessive thirst, constipation, itching, hunger, weight loss, weakness and excessive urination.

Types of diabetes ::
Diabetes Mellitus results from insufficient production of insulin by the body. This makes it difficult for the body's cells to utilise glucose properly and pushes up blood sugar levels.

Diabetes Insipidus is marked by extreme thirst and heavy urination. It is caused by a lack of the hormone that limits the amount of urine produced by the body.

Treatment ::
Restrictive diets that limit intake of carbohydrates and fats. Regular exercise to enhance movement of glucose into muscle cells. And sometimes, insulin or a drug that lowers blood sugar.

Risk factors ::
Obesity. Stress. Pregnancy. Use of certain drugs, including oral contraceptive, thiazide diuretics, cortisone or phonation. Family history of Diabetes Mellitus. (If you think you run the risk of developing diabetes, consult your doctor.)
