People with type 2 diabetes frequently experience certain symptoms. These include:
- being very thirsty
- frequent urination
- blurry vision
- tingling or numbness in the hands or feet
- frequent skin, bladder or gum infections
- wounds that don’t heal
- extreme unexplained fatigue
In some cases of type 2 diabetes, there are no symptoms. In this case, people can live for months, even years, without knowing they have the disease. This form of diabetes comes on so gradually that symptoms may not even be recognized.
If you believe you are experiencing the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, contact your primary care physician and see if there is Joslin affiliate near you.
