At home, you can make a test of diabetes symptoms, on the basis of results to confirm or deny the disease.
1. Ask your partner to stand upright and try to move the thumbs on their feet. If they are able to lift each toe at 50-60 degrees from the floor, it is good, but if they can barely raise them, the metabolism is slower.
2. Let your partner fold their palms. If the fingers of both hands with their length are covering each other, it’s good. Namely, diabetics overlap only the joints of the fingers, because their tendons are shortened.
3. If you rest more often, it is one of the indicators of diabetes.
Of course, this test is not as reliable as diagnostic blood tests. But it will be an indicator for further examination with a doctor.
