The symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes vary from person-to-person, but find out if you have any of the risks or symptoms with our risk and symptom checker below:

Do you suffer from 3 or more of those symptoms and risks?

Then you could be at risk, or already living with undiagnosed, type 2 diabetes.

The only way to know if these are Type 2 Diabetes symptoms is to order our HbA1c test kit and find out for sure.


What Are The Complications of Type 2 Diabetes?
