What are the symptoms and signs of diabetes?

Symptoms of diabetes include excessive thirst and frequent urination. You may also have unintentionally lost a little weight recently and feel tired. In addition, you may notice that wounds take longer than normal to heal.

Excessive body weight (especially around the abdomen), high blood pressure and abnormal cholesterol levels are common signs that raise the likelihood of type 2 diabetes.
