However, there are also silent symptoms of abnormality on our sugar levels that we may already feel, but we always ignore.
Here are the symptoms of diabetes which you may have taken for granted:
1. Your vision will improve
Taking off your reading glasses more often is not actually a good sign. Some patients who have been experiencing an increase on their blood sugar levels have claimed that their vision has suddenly improved and that they have stopped using their reading glasses.
But for the meantime, when the level of their insulin has been back to normal, they tend to use their glasses once again. Even though there has been no official studies have been taken to confirm this, some doctors’ claims that the improvement of eyesight is tightly connected with diabetes.
2. Changes on the skin
You will begin to see yourself having some dark patches on your skin, around your elbows, knuckles and on the back of your neck. This signs shows that your blood sugar level has risen.

The high levels of insulin increases the growth of the skin and the creation of melanin which makes some skin patches changes its color and become darker than the usual.
The tests can either show that the patient already has diabetes or just has an increase in blood sugar level. In order to fight against it, the patient has to lose weight and to consult on a medical professional adviser.
