What happens if you are diabetic but never get it diagnosed ?

What happens if you're diabetic but never get it diagnosed or treated? Like if someone pees all the time, stays thirsty, has the round diabetic belly, but never goes to the doctor and feels fine except for a bit lethargic and low energy? Will you suddenly die or something?

Not like that. But the chances of other organs getting damaged are high along with weakness. The organs that can be affected are retina(eye), nerves, kidneys, heart and brain as well which will have a severe impact on life. Also diabetics will be more prone for infection which can even lead to amputations.
