We received Gwen's urinalysis test results and they are all clear. Yeah! No sugar, No protein, no bacteria! Even though it came back negative I will forever watch for the signs of diabetes to strike again. For my friends who came to the site not really knowing alot about type 1 diabetes the symptoms are...
Symptoms of type 1 diabetes usually develop quickly, over a few hours or a few days. Often symptoms are first noticed after an illness, such as the flu. Early warning signs of diabetes that are often overlooked include:
- Frequent urination.
- Extreme thirst.
- Increased hunger (possibly).
- Weight loss.
As blood sugar levels increase, more noticeable symptoms may develop, including blurred vision; drowsiness; fast and shallow breathing; a strong, fruity breath odor; loss of appetite; abdominal pain; and vomiting.
Olivia showed the signs of frequent urination, extreme thirst, and labored breathing and the day she was diagnosed we found out that she lost 5 pounds!
