7 Symptoms of Diabetes You Need to Know

by Jodee on April 7, 2009

Since the symptoms of diabetes can seem harmless, you may not immediately think of this disorder if you have them. Many people have diabetes and aren’t aware that they have this condition. Here are some signs to be on the lookout for:

  • Blurred vision
  • Excessive thirst
  • Fatigue
  • Increased appetite
  • Irritability
  • Frequent urination
  • Weight loss

If you experience two or more symptoms on this list, you need to make an appointment to see your doctor to find out whether you have diabetes. If you do have this condition, you will need to monitor your blood sugar levels on a regular basis so that they remain in the normal range.

The other part of treating diabetes involves injecting yourself with insulin on a daily basis. Some patients are given an insulin pump, where the insulin is administered through a tube that is placed under the skin.
