It is not easy to know if your symptoms are related to diabetes or not. Some of them might be so mild that you do not even notice them.
If you have a family history it is very important to pay attention to diabetes and this list of complaints might help you. The complaints in this list do not mean that you are diabetic. It is a way to early detect symptoms that are related to diabetes. By detecting diabetes in an early stage the treatment can prevent the complications of diabetes
Common signs of early diabetes
- Urinating often
- Feeling very thirsty
- Feeling very hungry – even though you are eating
- Extreme fatigue
- Blurry vision
- Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
- Weight loss – even though you are eating more (type 1)
- Tingling, pain, or numbness in the hands/feet (type 2)

There are people that think that since their parents had diabetes they will sooner or later become diabetes but this is not true.
Diabetes is not something you inherited from your parents. It is something that developed because of eating the wrong food.
There is a lot more to tell about diabetes in general and I wrote more about that in this post. There you can read that diabetes has been around for a long time and that it was only about a hundred year ago that they discovered that people with diabetes had an insulin deficiency.
