Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms

According to the American Diabetes Association:

Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms

  • Increased urination
  • Increased thirst
  • Increased hunger
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Blurred vision
  • Cuts and/or bruises that are slow to heal
  • Tingling or numbness in the hands and/or feet
  • Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections

However, many people with type 2 diabetes may not have any symptoms. The Comprehensive Metabolic Panel is used to check your glucose level, as well as your electrolyte balance, fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function. It is a good initial screening test for type 2 diabetes.
