What are the symptoms of diabetes?

In type 1 diabetes, symptoms usually include extreme thirst, increased hunger, frequent urination, weight loss and fatigue. These symptoms can quickly lead to serious problems including coma and even death. If these symptoms occur, seek medical assistance immediately.

In type 2 diabetes, the symptoms can be vague, or there may be no symptoms. Vague symptoms include blurry vision, poor wound healing, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet and frequent infections. These vague symptoms can go unnoticed, and type 2 diabetes can sometimes be present for years without being detected.

In gestational diabetes, there are no symptoms. All pregnant women need to be tested for diabetes during the second trimester. This is especially important for women who are at risk.
