The symptoms of type 1 diabetes usually develop over a short period of time.  They include:

  • Unusual  increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Extreme fatigue and irritability
  • Blurred vision

If not diagnosed and treated with insulin, the person with type 1 diabetes will eventually lapse into a life-threatening condition known as diabetic ketoacidosis (KEY-toe-asi-DOE-sis) or DKA.
