Diabetes Signs in Women


You may be wondering if it is possible for men and women to have different symptoms of diabetes. Apart from the known diabetes signs there are a few additional diabetes signs in women. These diabetes signs are not commonly known and may be considered harmless, but don’t be fooled; we draw the line between diabetes signs in women and men.

Symptoms of Diabetes: Diabetes Signs That Are Common to Men and Women:

  • Increase in thirst
  • Increase in appetite
  • Frequent urination
  • Tiredness
  • Weight loss and weight gain
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dry mouth
  • Vision loss
  • Itchy skin
  • Slow healing


Diabetes Signs in Women:

  • Vaginal infection
  • Yeast infection
  • Affects hormonal functioning
  • May develop polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Depression
  • Higher levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol than men


Diabetes signs in women often go unnoticed and must not be misunderstood. A medical professional can pinpoint if these diabetes signs are curable conditions or the diabetes signs can actually lead to diabetes.
