Type II Diabetes Symptoms

Contact your health care provider if you experience any of the following signs:

  • Fatigue - The feeling of tiredness and weak even when you have not done any work or performed heavy tasks.
  • Weight loss - This happens with no particular reason.You realize you are cutting down weight yet you eat well. This happens because the fats stored in our bodies get broken down to supply cells with energy.
  • Increased thirst - Dehydration is what brings about the urge to drink more.
  • Increased appetite - When the cells starve, they compel one to eat more to supply energy needed to carry out body functions.
  • Headaches - They occur frequently and do not improve fully on taking painkillers.
  • Frequented urination - This comes as a result of drinking a lot of fluids which are later expelled from the system as urine.

  • Dry mouth and throat.
  • blurred vision which can eventually lead to blindness.

Skin irritability often occur and show no signs of healing even upon application of medicated creams, oils or bathing with anti-bacterial soaps.
