In brief: 3 poly's

Polydipsia (excessive thirst), polyuria (excessive urination), and polyphagia (excessive hunger) are some of the classic signs of uncontrolled diabetes.
You may also get dizziness, weakness, fatigue, weight loss, or blurred vision.

Type i often sudden, type ii dm commonly progresses slowly for decades without symptoms, is missed by docs, though artery disease & other problems also progress more rapidly.
Symptoms finally occur: slow unusual feelings & loss of feelings in legs, kidney failure, blindness, combined with sudden loss of blood supply to body (heart attack, stroke, peripheral artery disease); ulcers, gangrene, etc.
