Your nails turn yellow and brittle
Sometimes, your nails can turn yellow. It’s probably because of an infection caused by fungus. In some very rare cases, the yellow color on your nails could be from a condition called yellow nail syndrome.

Shortened nails
Some of us have the habit of biting our nails a lot. If you’re always biting your nails, they’re going to be shorter. There would even be breakage, because of the constant biting.

Blush on the nails
If your nails are healthy, they’re usually pink in color. The color of your nails also tends to be even.

Lines across your nails
Vertical ridges on your nails are a normal occurrence. It’s just a consequence of aging. But if you see horizontal ridges, then you might be suffering from type-2 diabetes.

Frequent urination
One of the indications of diabetes is when you start to urinate at a much higher frequency than usual. This happens because of the high blood sugar levels in your body.

Blurry vision
Diabetes can also cause blurry vision. It can be a minor issue you can fix by taking some eye drops or even getting your blood sugar levels to stabilize. In some cases, however, it can be a more serious issue.

Extreme fatigue
One of the most common symptoms you face when you have diabetes is fatigue. It’s not a simple correlation either. The disease itself causes extreme fatigue because of your glucose and blood sugar levels.

Wound healing
If you suffer a minor injury and the wound does not heal as quickly as it usually does, it could be a symptom of diabetes. When your blood sugar levels are high, it hampers your body’s ability to heal wounds.

Thickening of skin
Digital sclerosis is another tell-tale sign of diabetes. This condition makes the skin on the back of your hands look waxy and tight. Over time, your fingers will get so stiff that it will be hard for them to even move.
