Your symptoms are probably the first sign. The over weigth issues and the non healing of a problem  like infection are the signs that the Doctor should suspect one has Diabetes. It is not dangerous to know but it is dangerous if you do not act on it even after knowing it. One should know the status of the same and keep the blood sugar levels under control.
