Symptoms of Diabetes, Hypoglycemia, and Diabetic Children

Diabetes is an Increasing Problem (Contd)

Cortisol is found adjacent to the kidneys and is released in response to either physical or psychological stress. It breaks down muscle protein into its component amino acid which then circulates the bloodstream. These amino acids are used by the liver in the manufacture of glucose for energy, increasing blood sugar level and at the same time lowering the use of glucose as fuel. The excess and deficiency of cortisol in the body may trigger some system disorders such as autoimmunity damaging the insulin-producing beta cells thus resulting in insulin deficiency.

Children showing symptoms of diabetes, or already diagnosed as having diabetes, who experience frequent episodes of severe low blood sugar or hypoglycemia, particularly at an early age, may have more reduced long-term memory performance than diabetic children who experience severe hypoglycemia at a later age. A diabetic child’s spatial memory performance may be greatly affected by episodes of extreme low blood sugar. Hypoglycemia is an abnormally low level of glucose in the blood or low blood sugar.

Overweigt and obese kids often display symptoms of diabetes like darkness around neck and armpits area, and frequently get urinary tract infection (UTI).

Treatment of Diabetes

Anti-diabetic medicines that are taken orally by the mouth are as effective as insulin injection in controlling symptoms of diabetes.

The Cost of Ignoring the Signs of Diabetes

Diabetes if not properly managed can lead to many complications such as amputation and damage to key organs of the body like the eyes, kidney and the heart. It takes every ounce of restraint and discipline on the part of the patient to be able to follow the rigid diet and medication regime required for the management of disease.
