What are the Diabetes signs in Women?

What are the Diabetes signs in Women?

I have over the last few years been asked, especially as my parents are diabetic if it’s possible for men and women to have different symptoms of diabetes. Well apart from the known diabetes signs, there are apparently and only based on my findings just a few additional diabetes signs in women.

These diabetes signs are not necessarily common and may be thought to be completely harmless, but don't take this for granted, for the following reasons:

The Diabetes signs that are typically found in both Men and Women are:

- Increase in thirst

- Increase in appetite

- Frequent urination

- Tiredness

- Weight loss and weight gain

- Nausea or vomiting

- Dry mouth

- Vision loss

- Itchy skin

- Slow healing

The Diabetes signs in women:

- Vaginal infection

- Yeast infection

- Affects hormonal functioning

- May develop polycystic ovarian syndrome

- Depression

- Higher levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol than men

I have read that the Diabetes signs in women sometimes go unnoticed, or maybe even get ignored for something else and so must not be misunderstood. Remember it is ONLY a medical professional that can identify if your symptoms are diabetes and if these diabetes signs are curable conditions or the diabetes signs can actually lead and develop into diabetes.
