HOW CAN I TELL IF I HAVE DIABETES??

TYPE 1 DIABETES
People with Type 1 diabetes usually have obvious symptoms and signs :
* Increases thirst and urination
* Constant hunger
* Weight loss
* Extreme tiredness
* Blurred vision
* In severe cases, lapsing into coma

TYPE 2 DIABETES

Many people with Type 2 diabetes may not be able to tell they have diabetes. Symptoms may not appear early and the disease may only be diagnosed several years after its onset, sometimes when complications are already present. When the blood glucose gets very high ( usually when the person is sick or under a lot of stress ), the may suffer from :
* Increased thirst
* Frequent urination
* Blurred vision
* Dry, itchy skin
* Poor wound healing
