People with diabetes have to be very careful about what they eat. But if you are fasting or are on a diet, then there are chances that it can lead to severe changes in blood glucose, which can indicate a medical emergency. Dr Behram S. Pardiwalla, Head of Medicine, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mumbai sheds light on four common signs of a medical emergency, which indicate you should consult a doctor immediately if you are a diabetic.
Vomiting: If you feel nauseated or are vomiting persistently, then it is a sign of a diabetic emergency. Do not ignore this sign as a mere problem with digestion.
Unconsiousness: If you suddenly become unconsciousness or have become comatose, it is a sign that you should call for medical attention at the earliest.
Drowsiness: If a diabetic patient feels drowsy all day without any underlying cause, then it might be a sign of a diabetic emergency. Consult your doctor before it's too late.
Confusion: Lastly, if you are diabetic and are not able to look after yourself and feel confused most of the time, then it could be a sign of a diabetic emergency.
