2. Thirst and Frequent Urination
Another combination is thirst and frequent urination. This is another situation where older people think that is just as side effect of aging. In addition, since being thirsty makes you drink more, which in turn causes more frequent urination, it can be difficult to connect the symptoms.
However, these are definitely symptoms of diabetes and if you have these two early warning signs together then you need to get your blood sugar checked. Your doctor is the only person that can tell you whether the thirst and urination symptoms you are experiencing is caused by diabetes or normal aging.
