How Do I Know If I Have Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects how your body turns food into energy. There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes occurs when your body doesn't produce enough insulin, which is a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. Type 2 diabetes occurs when your body doesn't use insulin properly.

Here are some common symptoms of diabetes :
- You have to pee more often than usual.
- You feel thirsty more often than usual.
- You're more hungry than usual.
- You're losing weight without trying.
- Your vision is blurry.
- You're tired all the time.
- You have cuts or sores that take longer to heal.
- You have dry or itchy skin.
- You have numbness or tingling in your hands or feet.

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it's important to see a doctor as soon as possible. They can perform tests to determine if you have diabetes and recommend treatment options if necessary.
