  • Increased thirst due to dehydration in the body
  • Increase in urination due to the lack of insulin to break down the sugar in the body
  • Increase in appetite to fill in the lack of energy in the cells of the body
  • Drastic loss of weight because of shortage of sugar absorbed in the body
  • Blurred vision since the blood vessels form blockages on the retina, gradually leading to blindness
  • Fatigue, tiredness due to lack of energy
  • Irregular menstrual cycles (in women)
