1. Changes in Your Memory (Forgetfulness)

2. Difficulty in Learning New Things 

3. Getting Exasperated Even With Minor Problems

4. Not Being Able to Think Deeply or Coherently As Before 

What could Diabetes be saying?

If you've answered positively to any of the questions, it might be diabetes signaling potential cognitive issues.


Diabetes increases the risk of cognitive impairments, including mild cognitive impairment, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease.

Elevated blood sugar levels over time can harm nerve cells and blood vessels in the brain, leading to cognitive difficulties.

Initially, these cognitive changes can be subtle, affecting memory, attention, planning, reasoning, decision-making, and processing speed. These changes can impact your ability to manage diabetes effectively. 

As the condition progresses, you might notice more pronounced cognitive challenges. Being aware of these changes is crucial for managing your diabetes and maintaining your cognitive health

1. Frequent Mood Shifts 

2. Feeling Unusually Sad

3. Being Irritable 

4. Experiencing Anxiety 

What Could Diabetes Be Saying?

If you've answered positively to any of the questions, it could be a sign of diabetes alerting you about your mental health.


Individuals with diabetes have a higher risk of experiencing depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and eating disorders.

Diabetes can be emotionally taxing, leading to distress, common mental health issues like anxiety and depression, sleep disorders, and even an increased risk of suicide. 

There's often a stigma associated with discussing mental health in diabetes, leading many to remain silent during medical appointments.

Discussing your feelings about diabetes is crucial, even though it may be difficult. Sharing your emotions can be beneficial for both you and your loved ones. 


Fatigue and Energy Levels

Question 3

Does This Apply To You?

1. Unexplained Weight Loss or Gain

2. Changes in Libido

3. Experiencing Mental Fatigue

What Could Diabetes Be Saying?

If You have answered Yes to any of these questions, it might be a sign that Diabetes is alerting you about your well-being and sexual health.

Fatigue is a common symptom of diabetes and can result from high blood sugar levels and other diabetes complications, or be due to medication side effects.

Diabetes may lower testosterone levels, and reduce libido in both men and women. Women may experience decreased arousal and lubrication, leading to discomfort during intercourse and reduced orgasmic ability.

The fatigue due to the constant management of diabetes can also further affect sexual desire and energy levels.


Diabetes may trigger hormonal changes, contributing to weight gain and increased stress and anxiety due to elevated cortisol levels.
