Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms?

September 14, 2011

Here is a question I recently received from

Diabetes runs in my family and I think this puts me at risk.  Could you tell me what are the symptoms of type 2 diabetes?

Answer:  Having a family history can increase your risk for diabetes.  There are a number of lifestyle choices you can make to reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes.  These include maintaining a healthy weight, eating right, and regular exercise.

Here are some of the symptoms of type 2 diabetes:

  • increased thirst
  • increased urination
  • increased hunger
  • blurred vision
  • weight loss
  • fatigue

Regular check-ups with your doctor important.  Be sure to tell your doctor about your family history and any symptoms you are having.
