Symptom #2: Polyuria
Any healthy person is likely to urinate several times throughout a single day. This is a necessary process as waste fluids need to be emptied from the bladder, which has a limited capacity. If you think you are urinating more often than you should be, however, then you should try to get it checked out.
Glucose is usually reabsorbed in the kidneys, but patients with type 2 diabetes, have higher levels of glucose in the blood. When the reabsorption mechanisms in the kidney become overwhelmed, glucose goes into the urine (excretion), and with it, comes water. The result is called polyuria, and it refers to the increase in urine volume, not urine frequency.
