What are the symptoms for being a diabetic?

Just wondering if someone could give me some symptoms for being diabetic. Also can bowel problems (constipation, diarrhea) be part of this?
Can pains in the stomach along with feeling ill also be because of this?

    When I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes my symptoms were:
    an unquenchable thirst
    frequent peeing (which was dark as I was dehydrated) Also started wetting the bed
    stomach pains
    blurred vision (I already were glasses but this was different, it was my peripheral (outer) vision that went blurry)
    blue lips after exercising/running, due to lack of oxygen (I was 9 years old and my teacher began noticing this after every physical education lesson)
    I lost a massive amount of weight over the summer holidays and my skin turned grey
    My hair around my forehead began falling out
    My breath smelled sweet like pear drops/red wine
    I was always tired

    Another symptom to look for is slow healing wounds. Some of the symptoms I mentioned above are not noted in many diabetes websites etc, however the nurses at the hospital I was admitted to confirmed that they were all attributed to the diabetes. Hope this helps :)
