Diabetes Warning Signs
Because Type 2 Diabetes can lead to serious health complications, it’s important to be aware of any diabetes warning signs and get tested for diabetes if you have any of these symptoms. Treating diabetes early can help prevent serious complications.
Warning Signs of Diabetes
Sometimes Type 2 Diabetes can develop without any warnings signs. In fact, about a third of all people who have Type 2 Diabetes don’t know they have it. That’s why it’s important to talk to your doctor about your risk for diabetes and determine if you should be tested.
Common warnings signs of diabetes include:
- Increased thirst
- Increased hunger (especially after eating)
- Dry mouth
- Frequent urination or urine infections
- Unexplained weight loss (even though you are eating and feel hungry)
- Fatigue (weak, tired feeling)
- Blurred vision
If you have any of the above mentioned warnings signs of diabetes, give your doctor a call and schedule a diabetes test. With the right diabetes diet, regular exercise, and medications, if needed, you can manage Type 2 Diabetes and live an active, productive life.
