You may have type 2 diabetes for years before you start to have symptoms. If your symptoms are initially mild, and they gradually increase, they may be hard to notice. In fact, up to 40% of type 2 diabetes patients have no symptoms at the time of diagnosis.
Symptoms of type 2 diabetes may be related either to high blood sugar or due to diabetic complications affecting the eyes, blood vessels and heart, or nerves.
Symptoms may include the following:
- Weight loss
- Increased urination (especially at night, which can lead to insomnia)
- Increased thirst
- Increased hunger
- Blurry vision
- Frequent or recurring infections
- Slow wound healing
- Foot ulcers
