Tingling or Numbness In Hands And Feet - A Warning Sign of Diabetes?

Ask yourself these few questions:
1. Do you wake up each morning with tingling hands?
2. Do your feet tingle every time you sit down?
3. Do you just blame it on "sleeping on" your feet or hands?


If you answered "yes" to any or all of these questions, then I'm glad you're reading this. The tingling or numbness in your hands and feet may be a warning sign of diabetes.


This sensation of tingling or numbness has alternative names such as:
Loss of sensation
Neuropathy
Paresthesias
Restless leg syndrome
Sensory loss


Type 2 diabetes is gradual and many people aren't aware that they have it. Diabetes is a condition that causes the blood sugar level to be higher than normal. This high blood glucose, among other things, damages the nervous system causing the sensation of tingling or numbness.


If you're not sure if you have diabetes, look at these symptoms:
Blurry vision
Constant Numbness
Constant Tingling
Excessive thirst
Extreme hunger
Frequent urination
Increased fatigue
Irritability
Unusual weight loss


Don't self-diagnose diabetes. You must see a medical professional for an accurate diagnosis. Still, you should keep a log when you notice these symptoms so you will be able to intelligently answer questions your medical professional will need to ask you.


Though not a complete list, some of the medical complications caused by diabetes are:
Eye Disease
Heart Disease
Hypoglycemia (low blood glucose)
Kidney Disease
Kidney Failure
Stomach Nerve Damage
Stroke
Urologic Problems


The reason why tingling or numbness isn't caught in time before it gets serious is because these sensations are similar to the feeling of having a foot or a hand "fall asleep."


Tingling and numbness is defined as an inability to feel anything when it touches your skin. Thus, the "falling asleep" sensation.


Tingling or numbness can be serious. Call your doctor immediatley if:
1. You have a rash.
2. You have dizziness, muscle spasm, or other unusual symptoms.
3. You have tingling or numbness has no obvious cause like them "falling asleep."
4. You have tingling or numbness in the fingers and/or wrists.
5. You have tingling or numbness in your legs and it worsens when you walk around.
6. You have pain in your neck, forearms, or fingers.
7. You urinate more often.


These symptoms of tingling and/or numbness will be worse at nighttime.
