Diabetes symptoms can develop very slowly, so you may not even know that you are at risk of developing high blood sugar.
However, there are some key signs you should look out for.
Diabetes occurs because the body does not produce enough of the hormone insulin, or the body does not react to insulin.
Diagnosing the condition early is crucial, as patients are more at risk of developing some fatal complications, including strokes.
Diabetes.co.uk warns that one of the most common warning signs of diabetes is unexplained fatigue. You may feel unusually tired during the day, or you may wake up feeling tired despite getting enough sleep.
Some diabetics also feel very hungry most of the time, even after eating a meal.
Diabetes symptoms also include persistent itching – especially around the genitals.
Type 2 diabetes often develops slowly over years, so symptoms can also develop gradually. Upon diagnosis, people with type 2 diabetes may show few or no symptoms of the condition.

Feeling tired during the day.
