When kidneys are not able to keep up, the excess sugar gets excreted into urine. This triggers frequent urination and in turn more thirst as well.

Fatigue or Tiredness

Dehydration due to increased urination and body's inability to function properly as it is less able to use sugar for energy needs lead to constant tiredness in the body.

Weight Loss

On losing sugar through frequent urination, a lot of calories are also lost. Also, diabetes keep the sugar from food to reach cells resulting in potentially rapid weight loss.

Blurred Vision

Increased levels of blood sugar bring out fluid from tissues, including the lenses of eyes. This affects ability to focus and vision.

Slow Healing Sores and Recurrent Infections

In diabetics infections are seen more commonly. High levels of blood sugar impair body's natural healing process and ability to fight infections. In diabetic women, bladder and vaginal infections become more common.
