Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition in which the body cells aren't able to effectively use the hormone insulin responsible for converting glucose from the food into energy, resulting in a rise of blood sugar levels.
Though it can be treated with a proper diet, exercise, and insulin therapy, most of the time, its symptoms go unnoticed and cause serious problems like heart diseases or brain damage.

- Increased Appetite
Polyphagia or Intense hunger is one of the early warning signs of type 2 diabetes which happens when your body cells do not get their energy from the food you eat.
When the cells cannot absorb enough glucose from the blood, your body looks for more fuel to work and thus causes persistent hunger.

Too much sugar in your blood causes excessive thirst.
Frequent urination to get rid of these extra sugar leaves you dehydrated and make you even more thirsty than usual.
