Symptoms of type 1 diabetes
The signs and symptoms of type 1 diabetes appear and worsen at a much faster rate compared to type 2 diabetes. The evolution generally spreads over 1-3 weeks, but sometimes it can be extremely fast, in just a few days. Type 1 diabetes in children can evolve undiagnosed for some time. The longer the delay of the correct diagnosis, the higher the chances of an onset with diabetic ketoacidosis.
Diabetic ketoacidosis is a formidable complication of diabetes. It can lead to coma and even the death of the patient. Hence how important it is to know the signs and symptoms of diabetes in making an early diagnosis.
