In brief: Diabetes
The primary initial signs of diabetes are an insatiable thirst, polyuria (frequent urination), and polyphagia (increased appetite.
) if you these signs and are worried about diabetes, you should visit your doctor and they can run tests as simple as a blood glucose test initially to determine if more tests are warranted.

In brief: UsuallyNoneforYears
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.
