Diabetes In The Workplace

Type 2 or adult diabetes is one of the fastest growing diseases today and if left untreated can affect long term health, family life and even your work place.

Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless. Recent studies indicate that the early detection, understanding its symptoms and treatment can decrease the chance of developing the complications of diabetes.

Listed below are just some of the symptoms and we - ll talk about how they can affect the worker.

' Frequent Urination
' Excessive Thirst
' Extreme hunger
' Unusual Weight Loss
' Increased Fatigue
' Irritability
' Depression

I don't feel it is necessary to go into detail in how the first 4 subjects can affect you in the work environment, but I will attempt to explain how diabetes causes the first 4 of these symptoms.

As the excessive amounts of sugar are absorbed in your bloodstream your body cannot produce enough insulin to process the sugar. Your body rejects the excessive amount of sugar through frequent urination thus causing dehydration. Many people begin to show signs of weight loss, dry mouth, and hunger. This triggers your brain to drink and eat more which snowballs the disease to worsen.


Before I was diagnosed with diabetes the symptom that I first noticed was I was tired all the time. I found that getting good nights sleep was a new oxymoron to add to my ever growing list. Nightly I would wake up hourly to urinate and never really falling back into a deep sleep. I dreaded the mornings, getting up out of bed for work was a chore I felt tired, and unmotivated. Life sucked!

After dragging my ass to work, by the end of the day I was completely exhausted. Forget about all the additional projects I had planned for the day. Simply cutting the grass took so much energy I felt like I ran marathon. Feeling depressed I found myself asking. Why was it that so many friends were able to work all day? Find a way to make extra money? And still be able to complete a few simple household chores? I finally decided to take action.

Life is slowly turning around, my energy is coming back and once again I feel life is worth pursuing.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please make an appointment to see your doctor for a checkup.
