Have Ants On A Child’s Underwear, Do You Have Diabetes?
Good evening … I want to ask my child’s underwear in the ant garden, does my child have diabetes? ,,,, please explain, thank you
Hi Zahra. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The presence of ants in your underwear does not always indicate a definite sign of diabetes. Underpants that are soaked in may be due to whitish sticking to the underwear (especially if the child is a young woman or a young woman), or putting the underwear in a place where ants already exist due to food debris around it. While diabetes mellitus (DM) is a collection of symptoms caused by high blood glucose levels. This is due to insulin deficiency due to the failure of the beta cells of the pancreas gland to produce insulin. There are 2 main types of diabetes mellitus that are most often found, namely diabetes mellitus type 1 which is genetic and usually appears since childhood and requires insulin to control blood sugar levels. Meanwhile, type 2 diabetes mellitus is a type of diabetes that is more common in adults and is usually caused by reduced levels of insulin produced by pancreatic beta cells or insulin resistance, which is the decreased sensitivity of the body's tissues to the hormone insulin, so that glucose in the blood cannot transported into body cells. This in turn causes an increase in glucose levels in the blood. Glucose is an important source of energy for human body cells, especially brain and muscle.
Common symptoms of diabetes mellitus are as follows:
Excessive thirst (polydipsi) Weight loss Always feeling hungry and eating a lot (polyphagia) Frequent urination (polyuria) Itching Feeling lethargic The process of wound healing takes a long time To determine whether your child has diabetes or not, it is necessary to do an examination physical and supporting examinations such as checking fasting blood sugar levels or while. Consult a doctor especially if the above symptoms are experienced by your child. Hopefully this information can be useful. Best regards, Dr. Shirly
