A Look at Diabetes Type 3 Symptoms

Those who are prone to developing diabetes are always on the lookout for symptoms of the disease. But now, there may be reason to be concerned about the threat of another form of the disease: type 3 diabetes.

It stands to reason that if type 1 diabetes typically appears in adolescents, and type 2 is more prone to occur in adults, that type 3 might be reserved for the elderly. That is not the case. Type 3 is actually a hybrid form of the disease. However, having either type 1 or type 2 diabetes may be a pre-cursor for developing this third strain.

Complicating matters is the fact that there is no agreement on the definition of type 3 diabetes (gestational diabetes is sometimes referred to as "type 3") or if it even exists at all. To the extent that it has been researched, it has been determined that it tends to affect women more than men and that weight seems to play a role in acquiring it.


Symptoms

Type 3 diabetes is associated with an increased heart rate and spikes in blood glucose levels. Researchers use the treadmill to prove this theory. Placing individuals who are at risk on treadmills shows an increase in blood sugar levels versus the same level of exercise from walking outside.

Electropollution

So what causes type 3 diabetes? Scientists believe that the culprit is something called electropollution. This is the electrical fields that are generated from the use of electrical appliances, such as TVs, microwaves, computers, fluorescent light bulbs, cell phones, etc. It appears that some people are more sensitive to these electrical pulses than others.

However, electropollution itself is controversial - some believe that it is a pervasive danger to almost everyone, while others dismiss it as the subject of quacks.


For now, the list of symptoms will be confined to just increased heart rate and glucose spikes. Scientists hope to learn more about this strain of diabetes as time goes on.
