Check Out This Diabetes Quiz To See If YOU Have The Most Common Diabetes Type 2 Symptom ...



And when you take the diabetes quiz, what is the most common diabetes type 2 symptom you'll find? Out of all the symptoms that identify the possibility of having diabetes, the most common diabetes type 2 symptom that people will recognise is a dry mouth or excessive thirst. Now that in and of itself may not be enough of an indicator of diabetes. You will see below other symptoms that indicate a possibility of diabetes.

You will notice that this web page has not only a diabetes quiz and insulin resistance quiz (commonly known as metabolic syndrome), but also there are links to symptoms of other health conditions. That is because these health conditions are often related and can be off-shoots of each other and trigger vicious cycles of weight gain, yo-yo dieting and food cravings.

So what are some other common diabetes type 2 symptoms you have to watch out for listed in the Diabetes Quiz?

Check out this list of common diabetes type 2 symptoms that point to the possibility of having diabetes (you'll find them in the diabetes quiz):

Diabetes type 2 symptoms you'll find in the diabetes quiz:

  • dry mouth and increased, excessive thirst ...

    • this is the most common diabetes type 2 symptom and often the first symptom that people notice as unusual

  • increased urination, particularly at night ...

    • the second most common diabetes type 2 symptom, this symptom is often explained away as "I'm just getting older"!

  • fatigue ...

    • unusual or excessive fatigue that has no explanation is another very common diabetes type 2 symptom and a strong red flag that shouldn't be ignored, yet so many people do ignore it because it is so common in our overworked society.

  • increased hunger ...

    • this diabetes type 2 symptom is often overlooked, especially if weight gain is involved because people think it's normal ... but it isn't. Weight gain caused by increased hunger often triggers insulin resistance / metabolic syndrome which is a pre-cursor to diabetes.

  • food cravings (especially for refined carbohydrate sweets) ...

    • this diabetes type 2 symptom is an off-shoot of the above diabetes symptom, increased hunger, as well as insulin resistance / metabolic syndrome. Weight gain caused by insulin resistance triggers a vicious cycle including food cravings.  (Weight gain is so important, it is the number one symptom listed in the Diabetes Quiz)

  • irritability or mood change ...

    • here is another diabetes type 2 symptom that is often overlooked because people just attribute it to PMS or many other reasons and just don't think of diabetes.

  • tingling or numbness in hands or feet ...

    • this diabetes type 2 symptom signifies one of the most dangerous off-shoot conditions of diabetes ... circulation problems. Circulation problems cause most of the complications of diabetes like high blood pressure, blood vessel blockage in the heart, blood vessel blockage in the brain (stroke), blood vessel blockage to the legs, kidney damage, and nerve damage and eye damage (retinopathy). Of all the diabetes type 2 symptoms, this one should never be ignored ... regular visits to the doctor are a must to make sure that diabetes is not causing circulation problems.

  • and blurry vision ...

    • again, this diabetes type 2 symptom is caused by circulation problems.

"Did you know that there are many health conditions that trigger weight gain?" Imagine ... Finally understanding WHY you have trouble losing weight ... and keeping it off! And guess what? In many cases, it is a physiological, health condition that is causing the problem!

Yes, that's right ... you could very well have a medical condition that is causing all your weight problems!  (Check out the diabetes quiz to see if your symptoms could point to this.)

The “Fatty Liver Detox Diet” is different from other diets on the market in that it looks at physical conditions that could be triggering weight gain and vicious cycles that keep you trapped in a never-ending cycle of weight gain and weight loss (commonly known as yo-yo dieting).

There are many conditions that can cause these vicious cycles and many of these conditions are inter-related so that it can be difficult to know what exactly is causing the problem. This weight loss program explores these different conditions; you may find that as you read different symptoms you recognize that you have some of these symptoms yourself. If so, then you may be able to piece together a few pieces of the puzzle and come up with what may possibly be causing some of your health problems, including weight gain.  (Check out the diabetes quiz for some of these symptoms.)

If so, then hopefully this diabetes quiz will help you to do something about it, including talking to your family doctor about a plan of attack to put your life back on track again. Many of these conditions also cause "off-shoot" conditions that may seem to be un-related, but could also be tied in to these problems too. (Some examples of "off-shoot" conditions may be Candida (yeast overgrowth), leaky gut syndrome, food intolerances, fibromyalgia and myofascial pain, digestion problems including reflux and gallbladder disease, thyroid dysfunctions, cellulite, weight gain, adrenal exhaustion, high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and much, much more!)

This weight loss program is specifically geared towards people who have had or may have problems with the above conditions as well as...

What are YOUR nagging symptoms trying to tell you?

Now I'm sure you're thinking how wonderful it would be if you didn't have any of those annoying aches, pains and other various symptoms that let you know that something is just not quite right, but actually, these annoying symptoms can be very helpful! Without these symptoms, how would you even know anything was wrong? The important thing is to use these symptoms to try to identify health conditions and imbalances that have developed over the years. Knowledge is power! Once you know what is wrong, then you can take the steps to correct it!

How do you know if you are biologically programmed to store body fat instead of burn it?

Many of these health conditions are inter-related, but in most cases, Insulin Resistance or Metabolic Syndrome seems to be at the core of these problems. Why is this a problem? Because Insulin Resistance / Metabolic Syndrome causes the body to be a "fat storer" not a "fat burner". Here's a clue to help you figure out if you have a problem with these conditions: do you find that eating highly refined carbohydrates trigger intense food cravings?

If so, check out the following Diabetes Quiz and see how many questions you answer yes to. (Note: This diabetes quiz is for informational purposes only and in no way is intended to replace the advice of a qualified practitioner.)

Diabetes Quiz (plus Insulin Resistance / Metabolic Syndrome):

Are you overweight and have trouble following a weight loss program or maintaining your ideal weight?

Do you suffer from yo-yo dieting, that is, are you constantly caught in a vicious cycle of weight loss / weight gain?

Do you have difficulty losing weight or fat?

Do you tend to be tired all the time, for no particular reason (a diabetes type 2 symptom)?

Do you get very sleepy in the late afternoon, or 2 – 3 hours after eating?

Do you often feel faint, dizzy, weak or shaky if you miss a meal or go too long between meals?

Do you have intense food cravings, particularly for refined carbohydrate sweets (another diabetes type 2 symptom)?

Do you have a "sweet tooth" (or did one of your parents)?

Are you an alcoholic or a child of an alcoholic?

Did you eat a lot of refined carbohydrate sweets as a child?

Have you ever hidden sweets or lied about how much sweets you eat?

Do you suffer from tremors, internal trembling or heart palpitations?

Do you often get mood swings or feel depressed or edgy (another diabetes type 2 symptom)?

Do you suffer from frequent headaches, particularly if you go too long without eating?

Do you often find that you feel confused, “spaced out”, forgetful, or find it hard to concentrate?

Do you have thrush (Candida or yeast overgrowth)?

Do you have a problem with high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, obesity, diabetes or high blood pressure?

So how many of these did YOU tick off on the diabetes quiz? Obviously in this case, more is NOT better! If you have ticked off a number of these on the diabetes quiz, you may find that you have a problem with Insulin Resistance / Metabolic Syndrome ... which means you are at higher risk of developing diabetes type 2 symptoms. But that is not the only problem ... you are also at increased risk of developing Estrogen Dominance and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) which are very closely linked to Insulin Resistance / Metabolic Syndrome. (Click on these links above to check out the symptoms for these disorders)

This Diabetes Quiz indicates an increased risk of Diabetes:

Do you have a family history of diabetes or obesity?

Are you frequently thirsty or have a dry mouth (the most common diabetes type 2 symptom)?

Are you over 40, overweight, or have had diabetes during pregnancy (gestational diabetes)?

Are you insulin resistant or have high blood pressure?

Have you experienced weight gain (particularly in the abdominal area) or have trouble losing weight or following a weight loss program (another common diabetes type 2 symptom)?

Are you unusually tired (another main diabetes type 2 symptom)?

Have you noticed an increase in frequency of urination, particularly at night (probably the second most common diabetes type 2 symptom)?

Have you ever suffered from blurred vision (a diabetes type 2 symptom not many people know about)?

 If you ticked more than 3 questions on this diabetes quiz, you are at an increased risk of developing Diabetes. (Remember, the first and second most common diabetes type 2 symptoms of increased thirst and increased urination can be a very good clue to increased risk of diabetes.  Also, please note that this diabetes quiz is for informational purposes only and in no way is intended to replace the advice of a qualified practitioner.) 

Learn how reversing Leptin Resistance will re-establish your natural "weight regulation system" and stop yo-yo dieting forever ... and help to reverse Insulin Resistance!

... And what is Leptin Resistance?

Leptin Resistance is something that not many people have heard about, even though it has been in the research papers since about 1994.  At that time, researchers thought that this was the answer to obesity.

They thought this because studies had been done with rats where if they gave leptin to obese rats, the rats started to lose weight.  That made them think that that if they put leptin in a tablet and gave it to overweight people, they would lose weight, but unfortunately this has not been the case.  As usual, human biology is too complicated for such a simplistic solution!

When leptin works properly, when we gain weight, our own fat tissues release the hormone leptin which suppresses our appetite and speeds up our metabolism to burn off the fat so that we return to our original weight.  Can you believe it?  Our fat actually regulates itself and returns us to our optimal weight or set-point!  Leptin also helps us to feel full and satisfied after eating and reduces sugar and food cravings.  Basically, it tells us when to eat and when to stop.

This is why you will often see healthy slim people who eat amazing amounts of food, but they burn it all off.  We enviously attribute this to their incredible fast metabolisms.

And this is perfectly correct.  They do have fast metabolisms.  But the interesting thing is that this is the natural order of things. 

This is how our bodies were created and all human beings have this capability … until we unbalance our body’s natural weight-regulation system.  Yes, that’s right … if our bodies were working as nature intended, then if you gained a few pounds, your body’s natural weight-regulation system would burn them off automatically.

Simply put, leptin is the hormone that regulates our appetites and our metabolism.  It also regulates how much fat we are going to store and how much fat we are going to burn.  It is the hormone that regulates our body’s set-point, that is, the weight that our body naturally wants to settle at.  Quite obviously, this is an incredibly important hormone!

When leptin is working properly in a healthy body, it perpetuates a delicate balance of speeding up and slowing down metabolism, storing and burning fat and suppressing and triggering appetite in order to keep your weight balanced.  When this mechanism is tampered with, it doesn’t work properly and you develop leptin resistance. 

Once this happens, that delicate balance is destroyed and we are caught in an endless loop of slow metabolism, fat-storage, increased food cravings, hunger and increased appetite and of course the end result of this is endless weight gain.  On top of that, the body will develop various annoying symptoms, including low serotonin levels.  Low Serotonin Levels can trigger many different symptoms including painful symptoms like fibromyalgia, muscle aches and pain, burning sensations, sleep disorders and even hot flashes!

There is a very strong correlation between leptin resistance and insulin resistance and diabetes.  Leptin is a hormone and you will often find that people with diabetes have many different hormonal imbalances including leptin resistance, impaired thyroid, exhausted adrenal glands and insulin resistance.  All these different hormones are inter-connected and rely on a healthy hormonal system to work efficiently and often when one is imbalanced, others will be imbalanced as well, triggering a vicious cycle that seems never-ending.

This is why weight gain is a symptom of each of the above-mentioned hormonal imbalances, as well as one of the symptoms of diabetes.  Leptin Resistance is the key-pin hormone that starts the vicious cycle ... and then perpetuates it. 

So, What Now?

If after completing this diabetes quiz, you think you are at an increased risk of developing Diabetes, there are many things you can do to prevent this from happening.  And they are all centred around changing your lifestyle to include a healthy diet and exercise.  But there is a bit more to it than just eating healthy.  You can eat a healthy diet and still be inadvertently increasing your chances of developing insulin resistance and diabetes. 

How?

Because there are certain foods that trigger unstable blood sugar levels, even if they are healthy.  It is important to know which foods stabilise blood sugar levels, decrease food cravings and improve your health.
