What are the symptoms of type 2 diabetes?

The most common symptoms of type 2 diabetes (T2D) are:

  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Increased hunger/appetite 
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fatigue, or a feeling of being run-down and tired
  • Rapid breathing
  • Blurred vision
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • A headache
  • Tingling or burning pain in the feet, legs, hands or other parts of the body
  • High blood pressure
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability, depression
  • Frequent or recurring infections, such as urinary tract infections, yeast infections and skin infections
  • Slow healing of cuts and bruises

Symptoms of T2D are very similar to symptoms of type 1 diabetes (T1D). However, T2D symptoms often come on more gradually; not everyone with T2D will display signs of having the disease. Blood tests are needed to confirm diabetes.
