What are the effects that can be generated from a combination of diabetes and the menopause?
Changes in blood sugar levels.
Hormones estrogen and progesterone affect the performance of the body's cells to respond to insulin. After menopause, these hormones could have an imbalance and affect blood sugar levels. If the blood sugar can not be controlled, will increase the risk of complications of diabetes sufferers experience.
Weight will generally increase during menopause.
Increased risk of infection.
For example, in the vaginal area. If infection occurs in the urinary tract, can cause difficulties for urinary incontinence, for example, when you're coughing or laughing. Urinary tract infections also cause pain during urination.
Usually the sufferer will be sweating, feeling hot while sleeping at night, making sleep soundly and often feel tired easily.
Diabetes can damage nerves slowly on in the vaginal tissue, causing the sufferer to experience difficulty in sexual intercourse and orgasm. Vagina feels dry so it will also cause pain or itching.
To prevent further negative effects, do a balanced and healthy diet. You can consult a doctor for a proper diet for your condition. Do exercise regularly. Routine checks blood sugar levels are also very helpful.
