8 Commonly Missed Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes
One of the most common symptoms of type 2 diabetes is diabetic neuropathy, which occurs when spikes in blood sugar cause nerve damage. In most cases, the nerve endings become damaged, which increases the risk of a numbing sensation. It usually starts in the feet and travels to the hands, arms, and legs. A numbing sensation may begin as tingling skin and can lead to complete loss of sensation in the extremities as the disease progresses.
