What are the symptoms?

Early detection and treatment of diabetes can decrease the risk of developing the complications of diabetes. The following symptoms of diabetes are typical. However, some people with Type 2 diabetes have symptoms so mild that they go unnoticed so it is always best to get your blood sugar levels tested by a medical professional.

  4. Extreme fatigue
  5. Blurry vision
  6. Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
