Diabetes is a chronic disease marked by high sugar levels in the blood.
There are three major types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes and Gestational diabetes.
This article will focus on symptoms of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, both of which have similar symptoms, too much glucose in the blood and not enough in the cells of the body.
Some of the top signs are frequent urination and unquenchable thirst.
The kidney can't filter glucose back to the blood if insulin is nonexistent or ineffective, and therefore try to draw extra water out of the blood to dilute the glucose.
If the body keeps drawing extra water out, the body also becomes dehydrated and feels the need to consume more water.
Among other symptoms are: loss of weight, fatigue, numbness in extremities, blurred vision, dry skin, and cuts or bruises that take unusually long to heal.
