Diabetes Symptoms Guide
Type 1 diabetes symptoms
If you have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, you probably already know the main symptoms, which include:
- Extreme tiredness
- Feeling very thirsty
- Frequent urination
- Blurred vision
- Cuts and grazes that won't heal
- Losing weight without trying
- Thrush that keeps returning
But what is the likely course of your condition, over time? And how do you know if you would benefit from our unique approach to diabetes care?
The symptoms of type 1 diabetes develop fast, typically over the course of several weeks. Type 1 diabetes, which was once known as juvenile diabetes, usually develops in childhood or adolescence. But it’s possible to get type 1 diabetes later in life.
Long term care and support
Over time diabetes can cause complications in the body – affecting the eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and blood vessels. (See Long term complications, for more detailed information.)
The consequences can be severe, debilitating, and expensive to treat. They may even be life-threatening. So whether you’re diagnosed with diabetes, or have had it for some time, you need the very best support, advice and ongoing care.
