Millions of American with Undiagnosed Diabetes

Make sure you are screened for diabetes! A new study in the Annals of Internal Medicine showed that nearly 3 in 10 Americans (8 million) with diabetes don’t know that they have it! Furthermore, about 2/3 of the undiagnosed patients had been to the doctor 2-3 times in the past year. Some of the risk factors for diabetes are being overweight or obese, having a family history of the disease, and a lack of physical activity. Diabetes symptoms include fatigue, blurred vision, slow-healing cuts and scrapes, and frequent urination. Diabetes is a major cause of death and the leading cause of adult-onset blindness, kidney failure and limb amputations. Be your own best advocate and monitor your health. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor questions. http://ow.ly/FeF2P
