Do You Know These Diabetes Symptoms?

Symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Increased thirst and urination
  • Increased hunger
  • Fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • Numbness or tingling in the feet or hands
  • Sores that do not heal
  • Unexplained weight loss

Symptoms of type 1 diabetes can start quickly, in a matter of weeks.  Symptoms of type 2 diabetes often develop slowly – over the course of several years – and can be so mild that you might not even notice them.  Many people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms.  Some people do not find out they have the disease until they have diabetes-related health problems, such as blurred vision or heart trouble.
