The 4 Ts Of Type 1 Diabetes – Know The Symptoms | #The4Ts | Diabetes UK
We believe that everyone who knows a child, of any age, should be aware of the symptoms of Type 1 diabetes – the 4 Ts.
Remember them, and know what to do if they spot them.
Toilet – Going to the toilet a lot, bed wetting by a previously dry child or heavier nappies in babies.
Thirsty – Being really thirsty and not being able to quench the thirst.
Tired – Feeling more tired than usual.
Thinner – Losing weight or looking thinner than usual.
If you recognise any of these symptoms in a child, see your doctor and ask for a finger prick blood test.
