9 Early Symptoms of Diabetes

Urination and thirst increase

A rise in thirst (polydipsia) and frequent urine leaks (polyuria) can be among the most frequently reported signs of diabetes. If you have diabetes, your kidneys can’t take in all the sugar that is accumulated. Instead, it gets deposited in your urine, bringing the fluids out of your tissues. The result is that you are more likely to pee and leaves you feeling thirsty. To satisfy that thirst, you drink more, leading to frequent peeing.
The average person can urinate 7 to 8 times per day. Between 4 and 10 times per day is normal, provided you’re healthy, and their frequency of bathroom breaks hasn’t changed.

More hunger

Hyper-hunger (polyphagia) Together with the increase in thirst and urination discussed in the previous paragraphs constitute the three major indicators of diabetes. If your body doesn’t make enough (or at all) insulin or does not respond to it normally, the body can’t turn food into glucose that cells require to fuel their energy. It can cause an increased appetite that won’t stop following a meal. All food does is grow blood sugar levels.
If you are eating and your appetite doesn’t go away, it is better to see your doctor even if you aren’t suffering from any other symptoms of diabetes.
