Signs of Diabetes in Men


While there is no cure for diabetes, it is possible for most men to reverse their symptoms. In many cases, a man with prediabetes can make lifestyle changes and avoid type 2 diabetes.

Early Signs of Diabetes in Men

Luckily, diabetes is not a disease that comes on suddenly; there are warning signs.

The most common early warning signs include:

  • Frequent need to urinate;
  • increase in thirst;
  • rapid weight loss;
  • blurry vision;
  • rash or itching skin that can result in an infection;
  • frequent tingling sensation in the hands and feet; and
  • fatigue

Even one or two of these early symptoms can indicate diabetes

If a man is experiencing any of the early signs of diabetes, he needs to visit the doctor. A urine sample and blood sample along with the symptoms will be enough for the doctor to make a diagnosis.

Both urine and blood samples can detect higher-than-normal amounts of glucose.

Preventing Diabetes

Before getting to that stage, the best way to prevent diabetes is eat a healthy well balanced diet and exercise regularly. People who are overweight or obese with sedentary lifestyles are at high risk.
