Dr. Suri Dadisheva declared that constant thirst, frequent urination and constant hunger are the symptoms of diabetes.
In an interview with the Russian RIA Novosti news agency, the doctor points out that all three of these symptoms are sufficient to diagnose diabetes before approaching the doctor.
“Diabetes is characterized by three main symptoms – thirst (mouth that does not come up regularly after drinking a lot of water), frequent urination and a persistent feeling of hunger,” he says.
He attributes the early symptoms of diabetes to weakness, sweating, dry skin and slow wound healing. The most common causes of diabetes are genetic, as well as obesity and high blood pressure.
“People in the risk group need to lead a healthy lifestyle, be physically active, avoid nervous situations and lose more weight,” he says.
The doctor recommends that you have a glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) test every six months to measure your average blood sugar level over the past 2-3 months to prevent diabetes. If the indicator is more than 6 percent, consult an endocrinologist.
“If the disease is diagnosed in a timely manner, the condition can be corrected by following a specific diet, even without the need for medication,” he says.
