the symptoms of Type I diabetes are obvious. That is not
true for Type II. Many people with Type II do not discover
they have diabetes until they are treated for a complication,
such as heart disease, blood vessel disease (atherosclerosis),
stroke, blindness, skin ulcers, kidney problems, nerve trouble
The warning signs and symptoms for both types are:
Type I: Frequent urination, increased thirst, extreme
hunger, unexplained weight loss, extreme fatigue, blurred
vision, irritability, nausea and vomiting.
Type II: Any Type I symptom, plus: unexplained weight
gain, pain, cramping, tingling or numbness in your feet,
unusual drowsiness, frequent vaginal or skin infections,
dry, itchy skin and slow healing sores.
Note: If a person is experiencing these symptoms, they should
see a doctor immediately.
