The symptoms of all forms of diabetes are alike. One symptom is having to urinate a lot. Other symptoms include blurry vision, itchy skin or skin infections, sores that take a long time to heal, unusual thirst, tiredness, dizzy spells, nerve pain, and losing weight while being hungry all the time. If you have type 2 diabetes, you may have mild symptoms for many years before learning you have the illness. You may have no symptoms but find out you have the disease after ascreening test at the doctor’s office. Diagnosis is important, even when symptoms are mild or absent. Early detection can prevent the health problems that arise sooner or later from untreated type 2 diabetes.
