      Sometimes diabetes can present with people being very unwell however more and more people are understanding the signs of diabetes and seeing their doctor early.
      You may of heard of the four Ts:
      What are the 4 Ts?
      Toilet – Going to the toilet a lot, bed wetting by a previously dry child or heavier nappies in babies
      Thirsty – Being really thirsty and not being able to quench the thirst
      Tired – Feeling more tired than usual
      Thinner – Losing weight or looking thinner than usual
      Hope that is helpful!
