“I constantly have to go to the bathroom.” “I tend to be thirstier now — compared to earlier in my life.” “My weight has suddenly dropped significantly.”
This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to their sudden diabetes I complaint.
In the case of diabetes, the pancreas produces insufficient insulin, a hormone that allows body cells to take in glucose. In this genetically based diabetes I disorder, which is mainly found in children and youth, the insulin-producing cells have been partially or fully destroyed. This almost always occurs following an infectious illness that triggers an autoimmune reaction against the insulin-building cells.
If left untreated, the later consequences can become quite serious. The disease can turn into arteriosclerosis, blindness, kidney damage, diabetic polyneuropathy or even may go so far as to require amputation of the feet.
