Symptoms of Diabetes

Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless.

Early detection of diabetes symptoms and treatment can decrease the chance of developing the complications of diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes

  • Frequent urination 
  • Increased thirst 
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Extreme fatigue and Irritability

Type 2 Diabetes

  • Any of the type 1 symptoms
  • Frequent infections
  • Blurred vision
  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
  • Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet
  • Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections

You most likely will not have all the above symptoms. Often people with Type 2 Diabetes have no symptoms or don’t recognize them as symptoms.
