Do you believe you may be experiencing symptoms of diabetes? If so, you should read this article on how to recognize symptoms of diabetes. This article discusses the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, as type 2 diabetes is a life long disease that needs to be treated as soon as it is diagnosed. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the cells inside your body can’t use insulin correctly or when the pancreas can’t create enough insulin. When insulin is unable to do it’s job properly, the cells inside your body will not be able to receive the amount of sugar needed. This causes too much sugar to build up inside your blood. Over time this can cause serious damage to your eyes, heart, blood vessels, nerves and kidneys. Diagnosing diabetes early on is essential, as treating the disease will help prevent irreversible damage to your body. It’s also important to diagnose the disease early on if you have children, as they may be at risk for diabetes if you have the disease and this means you must keep an eye on any possible symptoms of diabetes in your children, as well.

- Always thirsty
- Constant Urinating (Urinating more than usual)
- Suddenly losing weight without being on a diet
- Blurry vision
- Always hungry
