In brief: Multiple

The most common symptoms of out of control diabetes are excessive urination, excessive thirst, and unexplained weight loss.
Other possible symptoms may be yeast infections, tingling in the feet, and blurry vision. But very importantly diabetes may have no symptoms therefore those at risk needed to be screened for diabetes.

In brief: High blood sugar

Diabetes is when a person cannot make any or enough Insulin to transfer blood sugar into his body's cells.
The sugar stays in the blood, and starts to leak through the kidneys into the urine. A person urinates a lot, day or night. Type 1 patients (usually kids) get weak, get dehydrated, and can go into a coma. Type 2 teens & adults are often obese, are hungry, feel tired, and have more infections.
