The warning signs for type 2 diabetes include:

  • Unusual thirst, appetite, or fatigue.
  • Frequent urination or urinary tract infections.
  • Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet.
  • Eye or vision problems.
  • Repeated skin infections or cuts and wounds that don't heal well.

Many people with diabetes have no diabetes symptoms at all and often go many months -- or even years -- before they're diagnosed. That's because diabetes symptoms may develop slowly and emerge suddenly.
