What Is It Like to Have Uncontrolled Type 2 Diabetes?
One of the greatest dangers of type 2 diabetes is that it can be slow and silent. Many people with the condition don’t experience any symptoms at all, even though their unbalanced blood sugar is already affecting their cells and tissue.
You may be more likely to develop the condition if you:
- Are overweight, with a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or higher
- Are inactive
*Are age 45 or older
- Have a family history of type 2 diabetes
- Have high blood pressure
- Have low levels of HDL, or the “good” cholesterol
- Have high levels of triglycerides (a type of fat) in your blood
Although the telltale signs of type 2 diabetes may develop slowly over many years, the condition will cause symptoms for many people. Do any of these sound familiar?
Unexplained weight loss
Sores that are slow to heal
Skin, bladder, or gum infections
Whether you’re experiencing any of these symptoms or not, uncontrolled levels of high blood sugar over time can lead to tissue damage throughout your body, from your eyes to your toes.
