How to Tell if You Have Type 2 Diabetes

American Diabetes MonthSymptoms of type 2 diabetes can appear slowly (and some people don't even notice the symptoms). Symptoms can include:
  • Losing weight without trying 
  • Having blurry eyesight
  • Having sores that heal slowly
  • Urinating often
  • Feeling very hungry
  • Being very thirsty
  • Feeling very tired
If you suspect you may have diabetes, talk to your doctor. A blood test can confirm if you have it or not.

If you do have diabetes, don't feel overwhelmed. A diabetes management professional can help you set up a diabetes management plan and answer any questions you may have about exercise, diets, and medications. Managing diabetes is most often done by living a healthy lifestyle.
