Often in type 2 diabetes signs and symptoms may not be present.
Type 1 diabetes, once known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin, a hormone needed to allow sugar (glucose) to enter cells to produce energy. The far more common type 2 diabetes occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin or does not make enough insulin.
Various factors may contribute to type 1 diabetes, including genetics and exposure to certain viruses. Although type 1 diabetes usually appears during childhood or adolescence, it also can begin in adults.
- Heart disease and stroke
- Kidney failure
- Blindness or other problems seeing
- Gum disease and tooth loss
- Nerve damage in the hands, feet, and organs
Type 1 diabetes signs and symptoms can surface rapidly and may include:
- Increased thirst
- Frequent urination
- Bedwetting in children who previously did not wet the bed during the night
- Extreme hunger
- Unintended weight loss
- Irritability and other mood changes
- Fatigue and weakness
- Blurred vision
- In females, a vaginal yeast infection
Type 2 diabetes, once known as adult-onset or noninsulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition that affects the way your body metabolizes sugar (glucose). Your body either resists the effects of insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells — or does not produce enough insulin to maintain a normal glucose level.
- Increased thirst and frequent urination. Excess sugar building up in your bloodstream causes fluid to be pulled from the tissues. This may leave you thirsty.
- Increased hunger. Without enough insulin to move sugar into your cells, your muscles and organs become depleted of energy. This triggers intense hunger.
- Weight loss. Despite eating more than usual to relieve hunger, you may lose weight. Without the ability to metabolize glucose, the body uses alternative fuels stored in muscle and fat.
- Fatigue. If your cells are deprived of sugar, you may become tired and irritable.
- Blurred vision. If your blood sugar is too high, fluid may be pulled from the lenses of your eyes. This may affect your ability to focus.
- Slow-healing sores or frequent infections. Type 2 diabetes affects your ability to heal and resist infections.
- Areas of darkened skin. Some diabetics have patches of dark, velvety skin in the folds and creases of their bodies — usually in the armpits and neck. This condition, called acanthosis nigricans, may be a sign of insulin resistance.
Pre-diabetes is a risk factor leading to the development of type 2 diabetes. It’s a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but still not diabetic. There are no defined symptoms, but risk factors include obesity, smoking, heart disease, polycystic ovary syndrome and high blood pressure. Without treatment, 33% of pre-diabetics will develop type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Excessive thirst and urination are typically the first indications of high blood glucose levels in kids. While younger children may begin enuresis (wetting the bed), some get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom (nocturia).. The loss of sugar in the urine, together with dehydration, and lack of blood sugar is a bad combination. This can lead to weight loss despite an increase in appetite (polyphagia). As the symptoms develop and worsen, a child can become tired, drowsy, and weak.
