IT’S NOR­MAL TO GO TO THE BATH­ROOM ONCE AT NIGHT BUT

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - Your Best Body Ever -

if you’re reg­u­larly get­ting up a cou­ple of times and are uri­nat­ing more dur­ing the day, this can be a sign of Type 2 di­a­betes. Type 2 di­a­betes re­sults in high glu­cose levels in the blood, ex­plains Re­nae Roll, a di­a­betes ed­u­ca­tor. “The body tries to bal­ance this by draw­ing our fluid from the sur­round­ing tis­sues to di­lute it and as the tis­sues to be­come more de­hy­drated they sig­nal the per­son to drink more fluid.” This com­bi­na­tion of fluid over­load overwhelms the blad­der, mak­ing you visit the bath­room more.

Other symp­toms of type 2 di­a­betes in­clude in­creased thirst, tired­ness, re­cur­rent uri­nary tract in­fec­tions and blurred vi­sion. If your GP sus­pects di­a­betes, a blood test will be recommended to check glu­cose levels.
