Diabetes is where a person’s blood sugar levels become too high and millions around the world are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. This means that their body doesn’t produce enough insulin to keep blood sugar levels down. Now, according to a new research, a team of scientists has revealed seven warning signs you should see a doctor as soon as possible, to see if you are having Type 2 diabetes, reports Express.co.uk.

The seven signs are:

- Feeling very thirsty

- Urinating more frequently than usual, particularly at night

- Feeling very tired

- Weight loss and loss of muscle bulk

- Itching around the penis or vagina, or frequent episodes of thrush

- Cuts or wounds that heal slowly

- Blurred vision

These symptoms may be more apparent after meals, as per the team. While symptoms may not seem too serious - and could even be caused by something else - however it is important not to ignore them. Left untreated, Type 2 diabetes could cause problems with the heart, blood vessels, nerves, eyes and kidneys.
