Weight loss can occur for many reasons and involuntary weight loss is a sign of serious illness.
Spontaneous weight loss can occur even with an increase in appetite and thirst. Some causes of the ESTA situation are lack of food absorption (such as chronic diarrhea), endocrine disorders that cause the body to burn more energy (such as hyperthyroidism) and the body including intestinal disorders that cause uncontrolled diabetes resulting in loss of additional calories, the sugar was spilled in the urine.
Diabetes is an elevated blood sugar disorder. Sometimes, sugar increases slightly during diagnosis. However, it can sometimes increase considerably before blood sugar levels are diagnosed.
As blood sugar increases, the body is filtered naturally through the kidneys and the sugar can not reabsorb all the sugar spilled in the urine. It is very thirsty for people with a lot of sugar and will urinate very often. Patients often have a sudden significant weight loss associated with these symptoms. Because these same things often lead to a controller of sweet drinks (such as soft drinks, juices or sweetened coffee drinks, etc.) the weight loss is more serious, because the sugar is higher, so patients thirsty . It can suddenly become a dangerous cycle.
Why does diabetes cause weight loss?
Insulin is a hormone that causes the body to use glucose (sugar) as energy.
If you have type 2 diabetes, your body will not use insulin effectively and will not be able to transport glucose to the cell. Instead, it accumulates in the blood.
When glucose does not reach your cell, your body thinks it is hungry and finds a way to compensate for it. Burn fat and muscles quickly and create energy. This causes an unexplained weight loss.
Your kidney will also start overtime to eliminate excess blood sugar. It uses additional energy and can damage the kidneys.
Type 1 diabetes is a similar pattern, but instead of using insulin, your body will not produce it completely.
Although unexplained weight loss can occur in people with type 2 diabetes, it is common in type 1 people. It is the parents who noticed abnormal weight loss in children with type 1 diabetes.
How should I control other symptoms?
Weight loss due to diabetes is not usually an independent symptom. It usually involves other signs and symptoms, which include:
- Excessive hunger and hunger
- Excessive urination
- Itchy skin
- Dark skin on the neck and armpits
- Slow healing of wounds and wounds
- Yeast infection
- Abnormal fatigue
- Change in mood, including hypersensitivity
- Change in vision
Weight loss and type 1 diabetes
A sudden weight loss, or failure to gain a child’s weight, is one of the most prominent signs of type 1 diabetes.
If the body can not make enough insulin, it prevents the glucose in the body from entering the cell from the blood. To compensate for this, the body breaks down fat and protein to produce a ketone, an alternative source of energy.
The sudden weight loss of diagnosed type 1 diabetes can occur by deliberately omitting insulin injection. This is known as diabulimia and can greatly increase the chances of developing diabetic complications early.
Weight loss and type 2 diabetes
Decreasing muscle mass is a relatively common sign of type 2 diabetes and should encourage doctors to seek diagnosis.
A dramatic decrease in body weight can also occur in people diagnosed with diabetes if the body significantly loses the ability to produce insulin.
Your health team should measure the A1c at least once a year and treat it when the blood sugar level increases.
