Diabetes Information

Diabetes is a very serious issue

Diabetes symptoms occur when glucose (blood sugar) levels in the body become abnormally elevated. The most common symptoms of diabetes include thirst, fatigue, frequent or increased urination, and blurry vision, but symptoms do vary from one person to the next and depend on which type of diabetes you have. Symptoms of type 1 diabetes tend to begin abruptly and dramatically. In type 2 diabetes, the symptoms are similar but develop slowly, or there may be no symptoms at all. It is common for no symptoms to be present in gestational diabetes. In some cases, your symptoms may seem vague or harmless. It is essential that if you experience one or more of these symptoms on a regular basis, you see your doctor immediately for a diabetes screening and blood tests.
