Pigmentation, odor, itching – if these changes occur with your skin, type 2 diabetes may develop in the body.
According to British doctors, certain changes observed on the skin are one of the signs that type 2 diabetes can be diagnosed.
The development of Type 2 diabetes is linked to the inability of the human pancreas to produce the necessary amount of insulin to control blood sugar. Diabetes requires lifelong blood glucose control because its increased concentration leads to cardiovascular disease, increasing the risk of stroke.
British experts say: one of the signs of diabetes is hyperpigmentation of the skin. In particular, in a person with diabetes, it may be possible to observe skin darkening in the neck, groin, armpits, in the areas between the fingers.
Also, with the development of this disease, the skin can emit an unpleasant odor, is prone to itching.
If symptoms such as increased thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, and unreasonable weight loss are present at the same time, the assumption of diabetes is likely to be justified.
Experts note that the most appropriate ways to prevent high blood sugar are maintaining a healthy diet with limited intake of sugar and salt, as well as regular moderate physical activity.
