Signs And Symptoms Of Juvenile Diabetes (Diabetes Mellitus)

Diabetes, though a really common disease, is not as simple as it seems. Those who suffer know how much they have to compromise in eating and energy levels.

Diabetes, as most of us know is of three types- Type I Diabetes, Type II Diabetes and Gestational Diabetes.

Juvenile diabetes mellitus, one of the most common forms of diabetes, is popularly referred to as type I diabetes. It is the disease where imbalance in metabolism and unnecessary high blood glucose levels lead to some real big problems. The juvenile type 1 diabetes is also called insulin dependent diabetes as it is caused due to the deficiency of insulin secretion in the pancreas.

Juvenile type 1 diabetes patients suffer the problem of either little or no insulin production in their body, which leads to high sugar levels in the body. People who have family history of diabetes should take special care in prevention and diet control for the disease. Even those who do not have a family history should be cautious enough to identify the symptoms.

Symptoms of Juvenile Diabetes

Juvenile diabetes or Type 1 diabetes has many symptoms that can be easily identified. In case you have doubts, check the symptoms given below. If more than three symptoms match your conditions, then it is time you went for a check up from your doctor.

A Type I diabetes patient:

Urinates more than normal.
Feels extreme urge of binging every now and then
Experiences unusual thirst after eating sweets
Dramatic weight loss
Constant fatigue, irritability and dizziness
Blurred vision and nausea in acute cases

Type I diabetes can hit kids as well. Kids with type 1 diabetes are restless, weak and have the tendency to lose weight despite good appetite. Kids with Juvenile Type 1 Diabetes tend to have bed-wetting tendency as well.

One should get proactive once diagnosed with juvenile Type 1 Diabetes as it can lead to serious complications such as renal and coronary problems later in life.

As insulin levels drop in type I Diabetes, patients are treated with insulin injections on a regular basis. However as injections tend to be slightly inconvenient, scientists are working on insulin pumps to enable patients to inject insulin in their body. Scientists are also working on possible cures that include increasing insulin levels through pancreas transplantation, islet cell transplantation and artificial pancreas development.
