Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common chronic conditions, the first signs of which some patients may not know. However, it is precisely the rapid diagnosis of the disease that is very important and can help prevent complications.
Celebrating World Diabetes Day, professionals remember more that they help the disease to recognize this disease and notes, but the best way to make sure is to measure blood sugar and consult your doctor.
Elva Ramaškienė, a Eurovision pharmacist, says early diagnosis is important for both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes as the consequences of delay are as painful in both cases. It is true that type I diabetes is much more intense and more recognizable, and here is type II – you can tune quietly for several years.


"The first type of diabetes is diagnosed when human immunity starts killing pancreatic insulin-producing cells, usually affecting young people, aged 35-40 years, often diagnosed in children and adolescents, which can lead to inheritance but not only The second type of diabetes is usually determined by the human lifestyle, illness or complications, which is more common in the elderly, "says E. Ramaškienė.
According to the pharmacist, the symptoms of the first type of diabetes are rather intense and occur quite quickly. The first five symptoms include high levels of thirst, excessive urination, increased fatigue, weakness and noticeable weight loss. After some time there is another distinctive sign – the aroma of acetone begins to start in the mouth.
But type II diabetes seems less clear. The symptoms of this diabetes are very similar, but not so drastic. And, unlike type 1 diabetes, weight gain in this case usually increases significantly, obesity, overweight is recorded.
The sooner you diagnose diabetes, the more serious the complications are and the more serious it is.A large proportion of people with type 2 diabetes suffer from cardiovascular disease because it is too late for their doctor.While it is precisely this kind of diabetes , when early observation of the points, it is still possible to fully restore the body ", – notes E. Ramaškienė.
According to her, complications often affect not only the vascular system, but also vision, nerves and kidneys, and therefore, having the best suspicion, check and consult physicians in time.

Check – for everyone

In case of suspicion, it is best to determine your blood sugar level. This is important for everyone, especially for those with a family history of illness, as well as for the overweight and the elderly.
"Elderly people often have problems with the liver, pancreas, cardiovascular disease, these diseases promote diabetes, another cause of the disease is low activity when sugar begins to accumulate in the body and breaks so quickly," – distinguishes the pharmacist.
E. Ramaškienė points out that diabetes may end with a very serious complication of influenza. If the flu symptoms are vague and flu-free, it's worth knowing what causes them.
Every year in November, various health care institutions and organizations are traditionally more active in inviting them to release their blood and see their blood sugar.
Last year, this campaign took place in four major Lithuanian cities, at the initiative of the Eurobanks network of drug addicts and people who associate people with diabetes.
The results showed that among about 1,000 randomized individuals, more than 12 high-risk patients had to be sent immediately to family doctors for advice.
Blood sugar can be checked for free, this year, on 17-18 November at the largest pharmacies in the Acropolis supermarkets in Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipėda and Šiauliai.
E. Ramaškienė points out that there is no need for specific training, but it is recommended that you do not eat before testing as some foods can affect blood glucose levels.
