Many people are surprised to find out they have type 2 diabetes because they don’t notice any symptoms. That’s because many of the early symptoms of the disease develop gradually and don’t jump out as being a sign that something is wrong. Or they’re so mild that they go unnoticed. If you do have noticeable symptoms, it often means your blood sugar levels are out of control and you may have started to develop complications from the disease.
Here are some of the most common symptoms of type 2 diabetes:
- Frequent urination
- Increased thirst
- Feeling hungry, even though you are eating
- Numbness or tingling in hands or feet
- Vision changes (blurry vision)
- Slow healing of cuts or bruises
