10 Warning Signs You May Have Diabetes

Diabetes like many other health issues is best treated, and can be reversed, when caught at early stages. Perhaps you have diabetes or you think you might have diabetes; you must know that there are certain signs that will confirm if you really do have it or not.

Most of the time, these signs are easily ignored or mistaken for symptoms of something else, and if proper care is not taken, diabetes might become too late to treat. Read on to find out about the 10 warning signs that you may have diabetes:

1. Increased hunger

Increased hunger

When you have type 2 diabetes, your cells are starved for sugar because it’s stuck in the bloodstream, which automatically causes them to send signals to your brain indicating that “you are starving”.

2. Weight loss

Weight loss

Diabetes may be present once you notice a sudden loss of weight in your body. Your weight loss occurs in two major ways: one, from the water you lose when urinating and two, when you lose some calories in your urine and your body fails to absorb enough calories from sugar in the blood.

3. Increased Thirst

Increased thirst

Have you been drinking more than usual lately? There is a chance it’s because you have diabetes. What happens here is that the sugar found in the bloodstream pulls fluids from your tissues, thus constantly drying you out.

4. Frequent Urination

Increased urination

When you have diabetes, excess glucose builds in your blood. This causes your kidneys to work harder to filter out the extra sugar, which is carried out of your body through urination. So if you find yourself having to pee more often than usual, especially if you’re having to wake up at night to pee, then diabetes is a possible culprit.

5. Blurred Vision

Blurred Vision

Excess sugar pulls out fluid from your tissues, including the lenses of your eyes, which can blur your vision. What’s more, high blood sugar can damage blood vessels in the retina, causing diabetic retinopathy.

6. A Feeling of Fatigue

Dehydration causes by frequent urination and lack of sugar in the body cells can cause you to feel extremely fatigue. The moment you notice how often you become tire; then you are advised to get medical advice on what to do.

7.  Moodiness


Recent studies have shown that when your sugar levels are imbalanced, there is a tendency for you to become short-tempered compared to when you have balanced levels. Take note of this sign and consult a doctor if it is recurrent.

8. Tingling Feet

Tingling feet

Increased sugar levels bring about mild nerve damage, which can cause you to feel numbness in your feet. If you notice a strange numbness in your feet, coupled with any of the other signs in this article, then you will need to see a doctor for a proper consultation.

9. Increased Healing Time for Wounds

If by now you’ve noticed that your wounds are taking longer to heal, you should be concerned because this might leave you exposed to infections. But you should be even more concerned as this is one significant indicator that a person has diabetes.

10. You’re More Prone to Yeast and Urinary Tract Infections

This is mostly associated with women, as sugar in urine and vagina can become a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. It is recommended that you consult your doctor immediately, once you begin to perceive bad smells from that area even after washing up.

Watch out for these warning signs that usually accompany diabetes, and your chances of spotting the disease before it becomes advanced will be much enhanced and will allow you to prevent further damage.
