Distinct Early Warning Signs of Diabetes That Should Not Be Taken Lightly

By Xylene Belita

It is often felt in ordinary circumstances that warning signs diabetes are the same as symptoms that people feel. They are not. There is a great deal of difference between the two even though it is easy to take one for the other and draw inferences of them both. It must be noted though that despite the similarities they are two distinct entities in medical science. This article strives to clarify this aspect of the disease presentation.

Irregularities in functioning of the pancreas are considered abnormal. During routine physical examinations doctors often do a urinalysis which tells whether there is any sugar escaping into the urine. If there is any evidence that it does then there is a valid reason to have further investigations conducted.

Besides a urinalysis, the primary care physician would ultimately order a blood work or what is professionally known as blood culture. Specially to confirm a provisional diagnosis a fasting blood sugar evaluation could be ordered. There are normal and abnormal blood sugar levels.

In the event that any abnormal readings are observed when evaluating the blood culture it becomes a matter of concerns. The physician may choose to use this as an indicator in diagnosing the disease. Alternatively a postponement of can be made and a process of re-evaluation conducted since there can be a number of other factors to be considered.

In the absence of such sophisticated scientific screening measures to diagnose the disease each time a visit is made to the doctor a weight chart is maintained. This chart monitors the persons with to determine whether there is significant gain or loss.

Precisely, progressive weight loss over a period of six months raises an alarm. This often is supportive of preceding evaluations where there is elevated glucose levels and presence of sugar in the urine. Definitely this is indicative of an abnormal functioning of the pancreas. The physician now has evidence to make a firm diagnosis of the disease.

Of utmost importance is for the physician to conduct an analysis of the pancreatic enzymes. These are substances produced by the organ responsible for storing sugar in the body. Measuring enzymes and hormones produced by the pancreas gives ideas of its function. Inappropriate levels indicate abnormalities which need to be addressed.

Ultimately, warning signs of diabetes is derived when a thorough physical examination is conducted. It is when a physician through urine analysis, blood culture and enzymatic evaluations determines abnormalities in the functioning of organs. In this case the organ is the pancreas.
