1 in 2 people with diabetes is undiagnosed in South Africa. That’s why it’s so important to share the 5 symptoms of diabetes with everyone you know. That’s what the Know Diabetes movement is all about: we can change the diagnosis number by sharing these symptoms with family and friends, and asking them to share them far and wide.
1. Extreme hunger
2. Extreme thirst
3. Needing to pee a lot
5. Blurry vision
