Type 2 diabetes has a host of symptoms beyond the more commonly known symptoms, like weight gain and increased thirst. If you’re experiencing symptoms of prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, reach out to your doctor. They can schedule some labs to see if your blood glucose is elevated.
Type 2 diabetes symptoms include:
Increased thirst and dry mouth
Frequent vaginal or urinary infections
Neuropathy (numbness, tingling in feet and hands)
Slow-healing sores or frequent infections
It is important to keep an eye out for symptoms of prediabetes so you can take action before it progresses to type 2 diabetes.
