In brief: Many symptoms
There are many possible symptoms to diabetes, a condition where one's blood sugar is elevated.
These symptoms may include excessive thirst, excessive urination, disrupted sleep, hunger, unusual weight loss, fatigue, slow healing, frequent infections, blurred vision, tingling to the extremities, etc. In addition, some may notice no symptoms when first diagnosed through blood tests.

In brief: They can vary.
Many people with type 2 diabetes (the kind they get when they're an adult), have no symptoms at all.
The first indication of diabetes may be getting too many yeast infections, getting sick too often, or for men, erectile dysfuction. Clasically, the symptoms for type 1 are described peeing a lot, being very thirsty, and losing weight. A simple blood test can help with the diagnosis. Cheers!
