Signs and symptoms of diabetes

6 November 2019

Diabetes can appear a little differently in everyone. Sometimes the symptoms seem sudden and other times it is a gradually-occurring nuisance.

There are eight signs or symptoms of diabetes that should cause you to take notice. For instance, have you noticed lately that you or someone you know has a lack of energy, seems to be hungry all the time, and goes to the toilet more frequently?

If you notice one or more of these signs, it is a good idea to talk to your doctor about what might be causing these changes.

With a simple blood test you will get the information you need to determine the next steps. Left untreated or unmanaged, diabetes can lead to life-changing complications. 

You know your body better than anyone—trust what it is telling you. For yourself and for your family, pay attention to the signs of diabetes!
