Symptoms of Diabetes in a Woman

Symptoms of Diabetes in a Woman

Diabetes mellitus is a disease that affects the usage of blood sugar or glucose by your body. Glucose is vital for your health because it is an important source of energy for the cells of the body that make up your muscles and tissues. It is also an important source of fuel for your brain. If you are suffering from diabetes, no matter whatever is the type, it means you have excess sugar in your blood, which can lead to serious health problems.

Diabetes in a Woman:

Whether it is a man or a woman both can suffer from Type 1 (Insulin Dependent Diabetes) or Type 2 (Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes) diabetes. Although the following conditions can also trigger diabetes in a woman:

  • Polycystic ovarian Disease:

Polycystic ovarian Disease is a condition characterized by irregular menstrual periods, excess hair growth and obesity. In young women with PCOS, high insulin levels can cause the ovaries to make more androgen hormones such as testosterone. Having insulin resistance can increase your risk of developing diabetes.

  • Gestational diabetes

During pregnancy, the placenta produces hormones to sustain the pregnancy. These hormones make your cells more resistant to insulin. Normally, your pancreas responds by producing enough extra insulin to overcome this resistance. But sometimes your pancreas cannot meet the requirement. When this happens, too little glucose gets into your cells and too much stays in your blood, resulting in gestational diabetes. Women older than age 25 are at increased risk. Being overweight before pregnancy increases your risk. Untreated gestational diabetes can result in a baby's death either before or shortly after birth. Once you've had gestational diabetes in one pregnancy, you're more likely to have it again with the next pregnancy. You are also more likely to develop type 2 diabetes as you get older.
