Frequent urination,Excessive thirst,Extreme hunger,Unusual weight loss,increased fatigue,Blurry vision.you should go to endocrinologist and check you suger level.normal sugar in blood is 3.33 to 5.55 but after meal it can increase to 7 or 8.before checking blood suger level you should not have any meal.

i complained to my psychiatrist that the floor was always shaking. i suffer from hallucinations. i thought maybe It was a new one or had to do with my meds. he immediately told me to make an appointment with my regular doctor to get tested. i did and much to my surprise i found that i was a diabetic. my medicines that i take always make me feel very thirsty and the more i would drink the more i had to urinate. so it never occurred to me. i didi find out that i was taking about two or three different medicines that can cause diabetes. i found out of course after i developed it.

Life Happens....
I was watching the National Body Challenge and the twins were showing signs of pre-diabetes on the crease of their necks. The crease of the necks had a darker color then the rest of the neck.

So that is one sign of diabetes.

very tired,
drinking lots of drinks
urinating alot

Severe weight loss that kept going down and a numb patch on one leg that kept getting larger and larger. I didn't notice the other "symptoms" until after starting on oral meds for treatment of this problem.

I had no symptoms at all .I was diagnosed last year by my optic in

lethargic, drinking alot of water, yet your mouth feels dry, shaking when you haven't eaten in a few hours.

go get tested, and when you do, ask for a copy of your results.
i was told that i didn't have diabetes, but my mother asked for a copy, and my cholesteral was a bit high.

I am so lucky; I have never come close to having it. But, my friend Ray found out that he was diabetic when one day, he just all of a sudden could not see. Since he is not willing to change his diet, he is being treated the conventional way, and he has regained his sight.

I have diabetes and I didn't know it until the doctor told me because I have no symptoms.

If you have type I diabetes (younger age group) you will experience extreme thirst and hunger as well as frequent urination. These are very common symptoms. I wasn't able to make it through a 40 minute class without having to pee! Also, it's not so much weight loss but a lack of weight gain. I was underweight and, after starting insulin therapy, gained 30 lbs in 1.5 weeks!
See your doctor right away if you experience any of these symptoms (even to a lesser degree). If you're diagnosed with diabetes, I'd be happy to speak with you and help you get started. Feel free to email me ([email protected]).

Tired, drinkin craps loads and peeing, weight lost, blurred vison. Thought it would never happen to me as im only 21 weighed only 132 pounds and not like a couch pototoe. Was quite a shock

I wound up in the ER in DKA with a sugar of nearly 1000 when I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. Before that I had dropped over 15 pounds and was coping with the classic symptoms of diabetes on a hellish level.

slurred speech, like I had several marbles n my mouth.

i do not have diabetes but 2 of my sisters do and 1 of my brothers does...i don't remember about my brother being diagnosed but i do remember when my sis was. she was peeing a ton and we check her BS and it was like 600....so if you are always thirsty, lose weight without trying to, and pee a lot, you might want to call the doc...just incase

Diabetes Type 1: Symtoms of type 2

In type 1, the pancreas stop producing insulin, due to autuimmune response or possibly viral attack on pancreas. In absence of insulin, body cells does not get glucose for producing ATP (Adenosin Triphosphate) units which results into primary symptom in the form of nausea and vomiting. In latter stage which leads to ketoacidosis in which body starts breaking down muscle tissue and fat for energy, there is consequently fast weight loss. Dehydration is also usually observed due to electrolyte disturbance. In advance stages even coma and death, are being witnessed.

Diabetes Type 2:

* Increased fatigue : Due to inefficiency of cell to metabolise glucose, reserve fat of body is metabolised to gain energy. When fat is broken down in the body, it uses more energy as compared to glucose, hence body goes in negative calorie effect, which results in fatigue.
* Polydipsia : As the concentration of glucose increases in the blood, brain receives signal for diluting it and in its counteraction we feel thirsty.
* Polyuria: Increase in urine production is the result seen when excess of glucose is present in body. Body tries to get rid of the extra sugar in the blood by excreting it through the urine. This can also lead to dehydration because excreting the sugar which carries a large amount of water out of the body along with it.
* Polyphegia : The hormone insulin is also responsible for stimulating hunger. In order to cope up with high sugar levels in blood, body produces insulin which leads to increased hunger.
* Weight flactuation : Factors like loss of water (polyuria), glucosuria , metabolism of body fat and protein may lead to loss of weight. Few cases may show weight gain due to increased appetite.
* Blurry vision : Hyperosmolar hyperglycemia nonketotic syndrome is the condition when body fluid is pulled out of tissues including lenses of eye, which affects the ability of lenses to focus resulting in blurry vision.
* Irritability : It is one of the sign of high blood sugar because of the inefficient supply of glucose to brain and other body organs, which makes us feel tired and uneasy.
* Infections : Certain signals from the body is given whenever there is fluctuation of blood sugar (due to suppression of immune system) by frequent infections of fungal or bacterial like skin infection or UTI (urinary tract infection).
* Poor wound healing : High blood sugar resists the flourishing of WBC, (white blood cell) which are responsible for body immune system. When these cells do not function accordingly, wound healing is not at good pace. Secondly, long standing diabetes leads to thickening of blood vessels which may affect proper circulation of blood in different body parts.

And once you find out , DEPRESSION Is a complication of diabetes..

Wow , good question>
