Diabetes Symptoms & Warning Signs for Older Adults: Diabetes (3 of 6)

Diabetes often goes undiagnosed, because many of its symptoms seem so harmless. And in many cases, people with type-2 diabetes display no symptoms at all. For both type-1 and type-2 diabetes, there are several symptoms in common. Be sure to pay attention to the signals your body sends, and see your doctor if any of these symptoms start to appear.

    Generally women don't feel any symptoms. Someone litsed the general symptoms of diabetes but the way diabetes works, you have to have had high blood sugars for a long period of time before experiencing symptoms. Symptoms build up gradually, they don't show up overnight. And most women who get gestational diabetes develop it quickly. They don't have high blood sugars long enough to develop the symptoms. If you did have those symptoms it would be more likely you were a type 2 diabetic before you got pregnant. That happens to plenty of women they find out when they're pregnant. Good luck on the test!
