Symptoms often come on more suddenly than symptoms of other types of diabetes. While older people can also develop type 1 diabetes, it usually makes its appearance during childhood, the teenage years, or young adulthood.
Symptoms generally develop very gradually, compared to type 1 diabetes symptoms. As your body becomes less responsive to insulin, symptoms usually get worse. However, sometimes people with type 2 diabetes experience no diabetes symptoms at all.
Women with gestational diabetes often experience no symptoms. However, since gestational diabetes can increase your risk of high blood pressure during pregnancy, developing hypertension may be a sign you have gestational diabetes.
