  • Weight loss or gain.

The symptoms of type 2 diabetes vary from person to person but may include:

  • Increased thirst.
  • Increased hunger (especially after eating)

Both men and women may experience the following symptoms of undiagnosed diabetes:

  • increased thirst and hunger.
  • frequent urination.
  • weight loss or gain with no obvious cause.
  • fatigue.
  • blurred vision.
  • wounds that heal slowly.
  • nausea.
  • skin infections.

The most common initial symptoms of type 2 diabetes are increased thirst and frequent urination. Excess glucose in your bloodstream sucks water from tissues, forcing you to want to take in more liquid. Feeling lethargic, tired or chronically weak can be a sign of type 2 diabetes.When there’s no more insulin in the body, blood glucose levels rise quickly, and these symptoms can rapidly develop:

  • Extreme weakness and/or tiredness.
  • Extreme thirst—dehydration.
  • Increased urination.
  • Abdominal pain.
  • Nausea and/or vomiting.
  • Blurry vision.
  • Wounds that don’t heal well.
  • Irritability or quick mood changes.

Because they can worsen over a period of years, type 2 diabetes may remain undiagnosed longer than other, more obvious conditions.

  • Frequent Urination.
  • Extreme Thirst.
  • Increased Hunger.
  • Nerve Pain or Numbness.
  • Slow Healing Wounds.
  • Blurred Vision.
  • Dark Skin Patches.

These signs and symptoms include:

  • Increased thirst and frequent urination. Excess sugar building up in your child’s bloodstream pulls fluid from tissues.
  • Extreme hunger.
  • Weight loss.

Takeaway. Type 2 diabetes is a common condition that causes high blood sugar levels. Early signs and symptoms can include frequent urination, increased thirst, feeling tired and hungry, vision problems, slow wound healing, and yeast infections.

How do you know if you are diabetic or not?

Most early symptoms are from higher-than-normal levels of glucose, a kind of sugar, in your blood. The warning signs can be so mild that you don’t notice them. That’s especially true of type 2 diabetes. Some people don’t find out they have it until they get problems from long-term damage caused by the disease.

Can you test for diabetes at home?

People can test their blood glucose at home using a blood glucose monitor. Home blood glucose monitoring indicates how effectively the body is processing glucose. A home blood glucose kit reads glucose testing strips. These strips allow the machine to detect the level of glucose in a drop of blood.
