All About Diabetes
By: Melissa Callahan
What is diabetes? What are the signs and symptoms? What is the first aid steps? How do you prevent it?
Signs and symptoms are frequent urination, always thirsty, always hungry, extreme fatigue, blurry vision, cuts and bruises that slowly heel, weight loss (type 1), tingling, pain, or numbness in hands and feet (type 2).
The first aid is very easy. If they are unconscious, support the patient on their side, call 9-1-1, and wait for an ambulance. If they are conscious, give them some sugar.
It's easy to prevent type 2 diabetes, but you can't prevent type 1. To prevent type 2, exercise, get plenty of fiber, whole grains, lose extra weight, and make healthy choices.
