According to healthline It's well known that diabetes' telltale symptom—high blood sugar levels—can be fatal. The beta cells in the pancreas may produce less insulin or cells may be less effective at using insulin to breakdown sugar, both of which contribute significantly to the problem.
Healthline states that the warning signs of diabetes are comparable between the sexes. Yet, females are more prone than males to experience diabetes's adverse effects. Using information from a Healthline article, we'll take a look at a few of the signs that women may have diabetes. Let yourself unwind and absorb in this wealth of information.
What exactly are the warning signs that a woman has diabetes?
Candida overgrowth causes recurrent oral and vaginal yeast infections. Vaginal and oral yeast infections are more common in diabetic women, according to studies. That happens because glucose is essential for the bacteria's survival.
High blood sugar may be the cause of recurrent UTIs despite treatment. Urinary tract infections are more likely in people with high blood sugar, thus monitoring your blood sugar levels is important.
Last but not least, women who have diabetes have more frequent bathroom breaks than the general population. In spite of the fact that it seems like the same sign would apply to both sexes. Very high blood sugar levels might cause an increase in urine production by the kidneys.
Acanthosis nigricans, often known as skin darkening, Most often, this occurs in the armpits, groin, and knees, although it can happen anywhere there are creases in the skin. Acanthosis nigricans causes the affected areas to darken as a protective response to the harm caused by high blood sugar.
