WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF DIABETES

The symptoms of Diabetes are usually first noted as drinking more because of a dry mouth or increased thirst, urinating more, irritability, and feeling fatigued. The symptoms often but not always begin with those and progress to either weight gain or weight loss. If untreated, diabetes can have the common complications such as diabetic ketoacidosis (which can be fatal), diabetic neuropathy (which can cause loss of use of feet and hands), blindness, kidney failure, heart failure, and death.

Sometimes it can simply begin with a sense of not feeling well, lethargy, or tiredness not helped by rest. Every adult should get a fasting blood glucose level check every year (because many people are without symptoms). However, they can unknowingly be causing damage to their body -- vascular, coronary, artery, kidney, and eye damage.

Below is a list of symptoms.
A diabetic may experience some of the symptoms or all of them.


  • Frequent urination
  • Dry mouth (with or without thirst)
  • Increased thirst
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Little or no energy
  • Increased hunger
  • Itching of the skin
  • Genital itching
  • Yeast infections
  • Tingling or numbness of hands/fingers or feet/toes
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Significant weight gain (or weight loss) can occur with type 2 diabetes
  • Blurred Vision
  • Slow healing of cuts and bruises
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Muscle spasms

Sometimes type 2 diabetes can go unnoticed and untreated if the symptoms are not yet present, especially if the person is borderline diabetic.

Occasionally, people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms even though they are unwell. In addition, you do not need to be overweight to develop type 2 diabetes if there is a family history. Type 2 diabetes can sometimes go undetected for years. It's important to get regular medical check-ups. In some countries, such as the UK, many pharmacies offer free blood tests.

If you suspect that you may be diabetic, or borderline diabetic, please consult with your physician or medical adviser as soon as possible.

Symptoms for type one diabetes are urinating frequently, unusual thirst, excess hunger, excessive weight loss, and extreme fatigue and irritability. Type 2 symptoms are any of the type 1 symptoms plus frequent infections, blurred vision, cuts or bruises that heal slowly, tingling or numbness in either the hands or feet, and recurring infections on the skin or in the bladder or gums.

The problem with either type of diabetes is that the symptoms can be of any other disease or condition. Some symptoms are extreme hunger and thirst, frequent urination, extreme fatigue and weight loss. Often the person thinks he might have the flu, but any long lasting symptoms should cause a red flag to have your sugar checked.

There are many types of diabetes. The most common ones are type 1 and type 2. They are both characterized by having higher than normal blood sugar levels and they can cause weight loss, increased urination and thirst.

The most common symptom of diabetes is painful urination, followed by viscous urine as the kidneys do not lack the amount of insulin to properly filter urine.
