Diabetes is the No. 6 leading causes of deaths in the United States, according to 2001 data  from the United States National Center for Health Statistics.

Type 1 Diabetes Symptoms

Type 1 diabetes takes only a few weeks to develop. The initial symptoms are:

  • increased production of urine (because the body tries to get rid of the excess glucose in the urine, diluting it with water),
  • excessive thirst,
  • fatigue (because the glucose is not being converted into energy),
  • loss of weight,
  • increased appetite,
  • feeling sick,
  • blurred vision,
  • infections such as thrush or irritation of the genitals.

If type 1 diabetes is not treated at this stage, the body begins to produce chemicals called ketones that build up in the blood. This condition ? diabetic ketoacidosis ? causes additional symptoms:

  • vomiting,
  • stomach pain,
  • rapid breathing,
  • increased pulse rate,
  • sleepiness.

Without treatment, diabetic ketoacidosis can lead to coma or death.

Signs and tests   

The following tests can be used to diagnose diabetes:

  • urinalysis shows glucose and ketone bodies in the urine, but a blood test is required for diagnosis
  • fasting blood glucose is 126 mg/dL or higher
  • random (nonfasting) blood glucose exceeds 200 mg/dL (this must be confimed with a fasting test)
  • insulin test (low or undetectable level of insulin)
  • C-peptide test (low or undetectable level of the protein C-peptide, a by-product of insulin production)
