Common symptoms of diabetes are:

  •     Being thirsty all the time
  •     Urinating often
  •     Always feeling hungry
  •     Feeling tired
  •     Losing weight without trying
  •     Sores that heal slowly
  •     Dry, itchy skin
  •     Feelings of pins and needles in your feet
  •     Less feeling in your feet
  •     Blurred eyesight

Not everyone with diabetes shows these symptoms. The only way to tell is to get a blood test. If you think you are at risk, or have one or more of the above symptoms then ask your doctor.

It is estimated that 50% of EU diabetes cases are undiagnosed.

Make sure you talk to your doctor and let them know of your concerns

This will help ensure you stay healthy.
