Doctor

A:   Signs of diabetes usually include high blood sugars, increased thirst, increased appetite and increased urination. If you feel you have the following symptoms then you need to see a physician in person to conduct some blood tests and check you blood sugar levels to make a confirmed diagnosis and then start you on the necesary course of treatment which would include medication as well as lifestyle changes. I hope this helps.
