According to “express”, one of the signs that should be noticed is the presence of sweet-smelling urine.
A person with uncontrolled diabetes may have dangerously high blood glucose levels, and as the body tries to get rid of excess glucose in the urine, it can cause a sweet odor, according to Medical News Today.
“People who suffer from sweet-smelling urine due to diabetes may notice other symptoms, including fatigue, extreme thirst, changes in appetite, and unexplained weight loss,” the doctors said.
Doctors also said a person may also pass abnormally excessive or large amounts of urine each time they urinate.
Diabetes.co.uk explains: “Urination is defined as the frequent passage of large quantities of urine – more than three liters per day compared to the normal daily urine production in adults of one to two liters.”
The most common sign of urination is reported to be producing abnormally large amounts of urine at regular intervals throughout the day and night.
The diabetes charity adds: “Urination is usually the result of drinking excessive amounts of fluids, especially water and fluids containing caffeine or alcohol.”
Other symptoms of diabetes:
Feeling more tired than usual.
Genital itching or thrush.
Wounds take longer to heal.
