“It’s very important for people to learn to recognise the symptoms of diabetes as early as possible, as the condition will get progressively worse if left untreated, and can lead to other serious health problems including strokes and heart disease.”
“We should all educate our families, friends and children alike on the ‘4 Ts’. These may not always be symptoms of diabetes but it’s better to get them checked out and get help if needed.”
“I would encourage anyone who is living with diabetes to share their story with others if they feel comfortable to do so, whether that’s in person over a cup of tea, or online during Diabetes Week using the hashtag #DiabetesStories. The more we talk about the signs of diabetes, the more likely it is that others will be able to identify and treat the condition earlier.”
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high, due to ineffective control by a hormone called insulin. The two types of diabetes are:
Type 1: Where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin.
Type 2: Where the body does not produce enough insulin, or the body’s cells do not react to insulin.
If you have any of the ‘4 Ts’ symptoms of diabetes, you should contact your GP as soon as possible.
National charity Diabetes UK will be using Diabetes Week 2021 to tell diabetes stories from all corners of the UK. You can read more or share your own experience on social media using the hashtag #DiabetesStories, or visit their website here for more information.
