    Good question.  Because my family has this history, I knew the signs for the disease: great thirst, dizzy spells, tired feeling, craving for sweets, etc.  I follow a healthy diet and exercise and I believe this has kept me from getting this disease.

    The major symptom of having Diabetes is 'NO SYMPTOMS'. Thus getting an annual check up done with your doctor is good. Few Risk factors like family history, being overweight, unhealthy diet pattern,etc make you prone to the disease.
    Commonly seen symptoms are Frequent Thirst, Frequent Urination, Increased hunger ,Tiredness, fatigue. delayed wound healing. It is not necessary that everyone may experience these symptoms. Symptoms may vary.

    I don't think you can know for sure without going to a doctor and getting some blood tests. If you have the symptoms listed by teaches or if you have a family history of diabetes, then blood tests should be done. There is one called  a hemoglobin A1c test that will reflect your blood sugar levels over a 3 month period.

      Get some dipsticks from the chemist and test your urine for glucose, but if you have any concerns, the best thing is to consult your doctor or you health care provider for the appropriate tests.

    Individuals can experience different signs and symptoms of diabetes, and sometimes there may be no signs. Some of the signs commonly experienced include:

    Frequent urination
    Excessive thirst
    Increased hunger
    Weight loss
    Lack of interest and concentration
    A tingling sensation or numbness in the hands or feet
    Blurred vision
    Frequent infections
    Slow-healing wounds
    Vomiting and stomach pain (often mistaken as the flu)
    The development of type 1 diabetes is usually sudden and dramatic while the symptoms can often be mild or absent in people with type 2 diabetes, making this type of diabetes hard to detect.

    If you show these signs and symptoms, consult a health professional.For more information, visit the following link … ennai.html
