Symptoms of type 2 diabetes - Expert Video

Expert Video: Symptoms of type 2 diabetes

Experts in diabetes discuss the common symptoms of type 2 diabetes. Some patients may not realize they have type 2 diabetes because they may have no active symptoms, or their symptoms may develop very slowly. Common symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination and blurry eyesight caused by chemical imbalances in the blood due to high levels of blood sugar. Over time, complications may include numbness, burning sensations in the feet, and eye problems.
