WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF DIABETES?
- Dry mouth
- Blurred vision
- Increased thirst
- Weak, tired feeling
- Frequent urination
- Unexplained weight loss
- Frequent unexplained infections
- Slow-healing cuts or sores
- Tingling or numbness in the feet or hands
Other nonspecific symptoms may include:
- In women: itchy and dry skin, frequent yeast infections, and urinary tract infections.
- In men: low sex drive, decreased muscle strength as well as erectile dysfunction symptoms such as the inability to achieve and attain erections.
The symptoms associated with type one diabetes can develop fairly fast, within a few weeks or months. These symptoms usually start when you are relatively young. Other potential symptoms may include nausea, urinary tract infections, vomiting, or stomach upsets.
On the other hand, the symptoms of type two diabetes usually start to appear when you are an adult.
If poorly managed or controlled in the long run, diabetes can lead to serious health complications, ranging from kidney failure, amputations, to heart disease and vision issues, among others.
