Many people have diabetes and don’t even know it, because the symptoms don’t necessarily make you feel unwell.
“If you have any of symptoms of diabetes, you should contact your GP,” urged charity Diabetes UK.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean you have diabetes, but it’s worth checking – early diagnosis, treatment and good control are vital for good health and reduce the chances of developing serious complications.”
Around 3.7 million people have diabetes in the UK. About 90 per cent of those cases are caused by type 2 diabetes.
