The initial symptoms of Type 1 diabetes often occur relatively suddenly and are sometimes quite alarming. Common symptoms may include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Excessive thirst
  • Excessive hunger
  • Weight loss despite increased food intake
  • Dry or flushed skin
  • Dehydration

Diabetic ketoacidosis—a medical emergency that can lead to a coma or, rarely, death—may be the first sign of type 1 diabetes in some people. Symptoms may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Breath that smells like fruit or nail polish remover
  • Rapid breathing
  • Mental confusion

The initial symptoms of Type 2 diabetes usually develops gradually over many years, and the initial symptoms may be almost unnoticeable. In fact, many people discover that they have type 2 diabetes only when a routine laboratory test shows high blood glucose levels. Common symptoms may include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Increased thirst and fluid intake
  • Increased hunger
  • Weight loss despite increased food intake
  • Blurred vision
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Recurrent vaginal yeast infections
  • Infections of the skin and gums

In some people, complications of diabetes—such as peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage in the hands or feet) or coronary heart disease—are the first indication of diabetes.

Another possible initial symptom of diabetes is hyperosmolar hyperglycemic (nonketotic) syndrome. It can occur when the stress of an injury or a major illness, such as a stroke, heart attack, or severe infection, causes extremely high blood glucose levels (above 600 mg/dL). Symptoms of this medical emergency may include a dry, parched mouth; increased hunger; nausea or vomiting; and warm, dry skin. In people who are severely dehydrated lethargy, confusion, and loss of consciousness can occur.
