YOU’RE DROPPING POUNDS = WITHOUT TRYING
Losing weight without trying is an indicator that something isn’t right inside the body, and if you’ve lost 10 pounds or more over a period of 6 to 12 months without any changes to your diet and lifestyle, then the underlying problem could be type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
In men and women who have diabetes mellitus, a lack of the essential hormone insulin can prevent the body from moving glucose from the blood into the body’s cells to be used as energy. When this occurs, the body naturally begins to burn fat and muscle for energy.
At the same time, frequent and excessive urination from diabetes – if it occurs – may cause a person to lose sugar and calories. These effects combined can lead to rapid, “unexplained” weight loss.
