Webinar on Management of Diabetes in Women

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic condition characterized by elevated blood glucose or blood sugar levels. The pancreas either produces insufficient insulin or the cells of the body do not use it adequately. If you have diabetes, irrespective of the type, it means your blood sugar levels are excessively high leads to health concerns.

Diabetes increases the risk of cardiovascular events in women by fourfold but just twofold in men, and women have worse results after a heart attack. In general, women with diabetes are more prone to have complications such as renal problems, blindness, and depression.

When a woman has diabetes, she may have similar symptoms (excessive thirst, increased hunger, or frequent urination) to those seen in a man. Diabetic symptoms that are specific to women include vaginal and oral yeast infections, vaginal thrush, urinary tract infections, female sexual dysfunction, and polycystic ovary syndrome. Knowing about these symptoms will help recognize diabetes and receiving treatment as soon as possible. It’s crucial to remember, however, that many people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms at all.
