Is it possible to tell if someone is diabetic just by looking at them?
If so, how?

no. diabetics are just like normal people. you will only know if you asked them. just to add, the common signs of diabetes are frequent urination, excessive thirst and frequent hunger.

No you cannot most. Most don't even know they have it until diagnosed through blood tests.

I'm married to a diabetic and no i cant tell by looking at her


johnandeileen2000
No.

Yes and no. There are some skin conditions that are common in untreated diabetes that a great doctor can see which will lead them to order the appropriate tests to confirm their suspicions. I am in the middle of this myself and am awaiting blood test results right now.

It could be...

If you should happen to notice a medic alert bracelet and be able to read what it says...

Maybe you will recognize an insulin pump that is clipped to a person's waistband...

You see someone take a shot of insulin or check their sugar...

Can you tell by just a brief glance...nothing more than you would give a stranger on the street...no...why would you?

And what does it matter?

Being diabetic does not give you a certain look that would tell you that the person is or is not diabetic. I am type 1 diabetic and if you seen me you would never be able to tell that I have the disease. I do everything that anyone else would do in normal life.


mrsdarth72au
No it isn't. We (well most of us) are perfectly normal looking!

Absolutely not. I'm thin and fit. My skin texture, eyes, hair... everything is completely normal. The only way you could ever tell is by watching them very closely to see how they eat. Even then, it would be difficult as they eat the same as anyone who is into good health. You won't see a diabetic pigging out on frosted cake or doughnuts, however.

If you caught them taking their medication, though, that might give it away. Some diabetics might wear a medic alert bracelet, also. With me, you would never know unless you asked. In which case, I would be happy to tell you I'm diabetic. We're no different than anyone else except our blood sugar can be difficult to manage at times.
