Type 2 diabetes symptoms in detail
The first and most common type 2 diabetes symptom is the thirsty. Along with this you may feel the increment of urination frequency. This is due to the excess sugar in blood. How does excess blood sugar increase thirsty and frequency of urination? Excess blood sugar pulls more liquid out from tissues. Result of losing liquid from tissues is the thirst. Not only increased thirst but also excess fluid in blood generates more urination. That’s why type 2 diabetes increases thirsty and increases the frequency of urination.
If you feel an increment of urinate requisition especially at night, you can assume a type 2 diabetes. But increased urination is not only because of type 2 diabetes. More water consumption or high humid environment condition also triggers urination. So, increased urination and thirst is the next most common type 2 diabetes symptom.
But you could not assume type 2 diabetes from those two symptoms only.
The third type 2 diabetes symptom is increased hunger. In type 2 diabetes your body cells could not receive proper amount of glucose. Therefore this will trigger your brain as lack of glucose. Then your brain will stimulate a hunger feeling automatically.
This increased hunger will drive you to eat more food. Eating more food means eating more sugar. Your blood sugar will increase, due to the lack of proper glucose management.
So, if you feel hunger more than in previous normal days, you may assume you have diabetes. Furthermore altogether with the frequent hunger, frequent thirst and urination you can firmly assume you have diabetes.

Blurred vision is the most dangerous type 2 diabetes symptom. In higher blood sugar levels your eyes will also reduce fluid. Fluid comes out of the eye lens. This will increase the density of the inside matter of the lens. Therefore the lens transparency reduces and vision goes blurred.
If you feel a slow healing of a sore, you have to check your blood sugar. Healing process may slow down if you have diabetes. Chronic sores are more dangerous because you may lost your body parts.
If you feel losing sensitivity of your feet this may also due to high blood sugar. Losing feet sensitivity is also one of the type 2 diabetes symptoms.
