Is Excessive Thirst a Symptom of Diabetes? |

Angie Placeres, Registered Dietitian with Baptist Health South Florida, says a symptom of diabetes is excessive thirst, and it happens because sugar starts to accumulate in the blood, and insulin is not able to do its job, so you have a rise in the blood sugar.

She also explains other symptoms are frequent urination, blurry vision, fatigue, being tired, and sluggish.
