3. Symptoms

There are several symptoms of diabetes, but they are not always crystal clear, especially in the beginning. Typical symptoms include a constant feeling of being thirsty, frequent urination, and increased hunger. Weight loss is also a symptom, oddly enough. Feeling tired and irritable is also common. Diabetes also hinders the body's ability to fight infection, so sores tend to heal more slowly.
