According to the British Health service the symptoms of type 1 and type 2 diabetes are similar. However, type 1 diabetes usually develops suddenly over weeks or even days.

Many people have type 2 diabetes for years without knowing it because early symptoms can be vague and may not seem important at the time.

It’s important to seek medical advice if you think you might have signs of diabetes. Early diagnosis reduces your risk of developing complications.

Symptoms of diabetes can include:

feeling thirsty all the time,
frequent urination,
tiredness,
weight loss,
muscle wasting,
frequent infections or slow-healing sores,
itchiness around the vagina or penis,
regular episodes of thrush, and
blurred vision.
These symptoms may be due to other conditions, so it's important you seek medical advice and diagnosis.
