Diabetes increases the risk of some deadly complications, including heart disease and strokes.
Many people may have diabetes without even knowing it, because the signs and symptoms don’t necessarily make you feel unwell.
Common diabetes symptoms include having cuts or wounds that take longer to heal, having an unquenchable thirst, and passing more urine than normal.
Blurred vision, extreme tiredness, and having unexplained itchy skin could also be caused by the condition.
