The number of people with diabetes is on the rise, with around seven million people living with diabetes mellitus in Germany alone, according to the Federal Center for Health Education (BZgA). The most common type of diabetes is type 2, affecting around 93 percent of those with the disease.
Diabetes mellitus is associated with a variety of symptoms, but do these symptoms differ between men and women? According to the Hescuro Clinic, men and women generally experience the same symptoms, but there are some differences.
Both men and women with diabetes may experience psychological changes, such as aggressive behavior. However, men may be more likely to experience a loss of libido and erectile dysfunction. On the other hand, women may be more likely to suffer from menstrual disorders. It’s important for both men and women to be aware of these symptoms and seek medical attention if they experience any of them.
Diabetes is a chronic and progressive disease that affects millions of people worldwide. It’s important to understand the symptoms associated with the disease and to seek early detection and treatment. It is also important for individuals with symptoms of diabetes to act quickly in order to prevent potentially serious complications such as a diabetic coma.
According to the University Hospital of Zurich (USZ), diabetes symptoms occur particularly when the sugar level in the blood is high and the metabolism is derailed. In addition to the symptoms mentioned above, symptoms of diabetes may also include constant thirst, increased urge to urinate, weakness, fatigue, concentration difficulties, itching, dry skin, vision problems, weakened immune system, and susceptibility to infections.
Medical researchers are also exploring new ways to detect and manage diabetes. For example, a study has suggested that exercise can be a breakthrough in managing type 2 diabetes. Additionally, new developments in artificial intelligence (AI) may enable the identification of diabetes through an individual’s voice.
As the number of people with diabetes continues to rise, it’s crucial to educate the public about the symptoms of the disease and to find innovative ways to detect and manage it effectively.]
