There are symptoms that are not noticed in diabetics, which is an irreversible chronic disease in which metabolism produces excess glucose in the blood and urine due to a decrease in the secretion of the hormone insulin or a deficiency in its action.
Detecting diabetes in time can help start treatment to reduce symptoms and provide a very good quality of life to patients. These are a few symptoms of diabetes that are not noticed.

Excessive thirst and the desire to urinate
Excess glucose in the blood makes the kidneys work twice as much to eliminate it through urine, for that reason diabetics feel thirsty constantly and they believe the normal desire to urinate due to a vicious circle.
Weight loss and constant hunger
Although it has been said (and it is true) that obesity increases the risk of type II diabetes, constant weight loss and hunger must also be a concern. This is because by not getting the right energy from glucose, we regulate fat and muscle intake and by not doing the right diet, you may be more hungry than usual.
If you feel very tired, it can be a symptom of diabetes. When glucose does not arrive in sufficient quantities to produce energy, the body feels tired and tired.
Numbness in the feet and hands
High glucose for a long time causes damage to the nerves (which drive electrical impulses) that cause numbness and tingling, if you feel these symptoms, you should check your glucose now.
Vision can be greatly affected if blood glucose levels remain high for a long time and cause diabetic neuropathy, which cannot be restored.
