A sudden loss of weight   The body weight of the person has a great link in determining whether you are suffering from diabetes . Most diabetics are actually overweight  . It’s when the diabetes actually begins when the sudden weight loss occurs  . This is due to the fact that the body suddenly begins to use body fat stores for nutrition and energy  .

Often and frequent Urination    Frequent urination is the most classic symptom of diabetes  . This occurs because the body is unable to reabsorb water  . Because of the sudden increase in glucose present in the body, the kidneys are busy flushing and extracting more water than usual  .

Are You Suffering From Unquenchable Thirst?   This relates to the frequent urination  . To restock the supply of water the body gives signal that it is extremely thirsty.
