Diabetes Concerns Every Family

 

#Diabetes is a major concern in Malaysia. Globally, 1 in 2 people currently living with diabetes remain undiagnosed. Diabetes concerns every family so we should be vigilant in spotting the warning signs.

Visit your GP as soon as possible if you experience the main symptoms of diabetes, which include:

  • feeling very thirsty
  • urinating more frequently than usual, particularly at night
  • feeling very tired
  • weight loss and loss of muscle bulk
  • itching around the penis or vagina, or frequent episodes of thrush
  • cuts or wounds that heal slowly
  • blurred vision

If you’re diagnosed with diabetes, you’ll need to eat healthily, take regular exercise and carry out regular blood tests to ensure your blood glucose levels stay balanced.
