Has your weight started to fluctuate? Eating constantly and still losing weight should be a red flag. Are the weight changes a recent development? Was there no change in diet that could have triggered the weight fluctuations? This is one of the most obvious signs of the onset of diabetes. Weight fluctuation happens because diabetes causes your potassium levels to go crazy which reduces the amount of water in your body. As your water levels fluctuate so does your weight. If you notice your weight fluctuating wildly, contact your doctor immediately.
Excessive thirst is one of the diabetes signs that are well known. Because of books in which trendy characters discuss their diabetes diagnoses, a lot of people compare excessive thirst with diabetes. All humans get thirsty. Excessive thirst is where you are drinking way more than the recommended daily amount, which is 64 ounces and you still feel like you are "dying" of thirst. Nothing can be done about this thirst. If you undergo thirst like this, you should discuss it with your medical professional. It may be dehydration.

One of the signs of diabetes that is more difficult to realize, especially in yourself is when you are feeling kind of funny. We all have days when we have trouble concentrating. If you are all of a sudden feeling agitated, confused or even irritable and can’t seem to figure out why you feel that way, it could be due to the fact you are feeling one of the syndromes of diabetes. It is not hard to realize this in others, however it is more difficult to see it in yourself.
You might not even know that you’re acting out of sorts. It’s when someone asks "what’s wrong with you" that you should be alert. Occasionally it is just a bad mood. Infrequently, it is an indicator that something is not going the way it should internally and physically.
Diabetes is often difficult to diagnose. This is as a result of not everyone being familiar with the main signs of diabetes so they don’t know what to watch out for. A good rule of thumb is if you are acting unlike your normal self, it is time to consult your physician.
Don’t forget the indicators that are directly related to diabetes are not usually exhibited outwardly. A blood test and test of your pancreas will be necessary to appropriately diagnose you. Once you get the right diagnosis, you’ll be able to figure out how to feel better and get back to normal.
