Diabetes - Symptoms

Sometimes Diabetes can develop without any warnings signs. In fact, about a third of all people who have Diabetes don't know they have it; most of them have Type 2 Diabetes. That's why it's important to talk to your doctor about your risk for Diabetes and determine if you should be tested, even if you have none of the warning signs.

Early symptoms of diabetes may include:

Fatigue- As your cells are deprived of sugar you may feel tired.

Frequent infections and slow healing sores - Type 2 diabetes decreases your ability to heal and resist infections.

Increased thirst- The extra sugar build up in your body causes fluids to be pulled out from tissues. This may make you feel thirsty frequently.

Frequent urination- As a result of having more water, you will urinate more.

Hunger pangs- Your body is not able to convert food into energy due to lack of insulin, which carries sugar to the cells and produces energy. When we are low on energy we feel hungry more often.

Blurred vision- Just like in the case of other cells when the blood sugar level is high then fluid may be pulled out from lenses of your eyes, leading to blurry vision.

Unexplained weight loss- Despite eating more than usual, you may experience unexplained weight loss. Being unable to metabolize glucose, the body uses alternative fuels stored in muscles and fat leading to weight loss. Calories are depleted as extra glucose go out with the urine.

Darkened skin areas- People with type 2 diabetes sometimes have velvety dark patches on their skin, usually on neck and armpits. This condition is known as acanthosis nigricans and may be a sign of insulin resistance.

Type 2 diabetes may also include symptoms like leg pain and dry mouth.

Common symptoms of diabetes in women:

-Yeast infection

-Vaginal infection

-PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)

What Is a cardiac risk?

What is a cardiac risk calculator? Assessing cardiovascular risk involves taking a number of measurements and calculating the percentage risk of heart problems. A cardiac risk calculator takes data for an individual's predictors of disease, such as  blood pressure , and compares the results with population-level statistics. Based on this information, the calculator tries to predict their chances of ASCVD, and the person will find out their percentage risk of having heart and blood vessel problems. This information can help the individual take measures to prevent cardiovascular health issues, if necessary. If the risk is very low, no further screening or treatment is necessary. If the calculator shows a high risk, a health professional will discuss lifestyle adjustments and other measures that may prevent an adverse event. People undergoing treatment for a cardiovascular condition will probably not use a calculator, as they are already managing their risks through treatment. Measura

Flames Calculator

How does this flames calculator work? It is always hard to define the  relationship between two people  in a simple word like friendship,  love , affection and enemy or to predict the outcome, like  marriage . The above tool tries to find the answer to questions likes "what is our relationship?" or to give you a sense of what is going on between you and another person. You are only asked to enter the two names between which you want to calculate the relationship. The flames calculator is based on quite a simple algorithm in which  FLAMES  stands for: ■  F riendship; ■  L ove; ■  A ffection; ■  M arriage; ■  E nemy; ■  S iblings. The FLAMES test is actually a  compatibility analysis   that reveals to what extent the  relationship between two persons can go , defining that into 6 simple words. You can use it as a  love meter  to see whether you and your crush have any chance to get serious or simply to see what future holds between you and the person you just met. This is just

Learn Analog

The Analog clock: At first, it’s best to focus on ensuring the child understands the significance of each hand: When we start playing with the clock, first of all, we teach the hours, before we start moving the minute hand five minutes at a time: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55. Once they’ve played with the clock for a while, and understand what each hand indicates, we can teach them quarters; a quarter of an hour, half an hour, and three-quarters of an hour. At the same time, we can show them the time on a digital clock, which helps simplify the exercise since the exact minutes are shown in number form. Since the numbers on an analog clock only go up to 12 and a day consists of 24 hours, when we read the time in analog we need to add  “am”   or  “pm”  to indicate the correct time.
