Identifying Symptoms of Diabetes

While it can sometimes be difficult to determine if you have diabetes,c, there are some common signs and symptoms to look out for. These may include, but are not limited to:

Causes and Risks of Diabetic Conditions

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects how the body processes glucose. There are different types of diabetes, including type 1, type 2, gestational diabetes, and prediabetes. Patients with diabetes have a high level of glucose in their blood, which can damage organs and tissues. When diabetes is left untreated, it can lead to other serious health conditions, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Nerve damage
  • Foot damage
  • Kidney damage
  • Eye damage (retinopathy)

Diagnosing and Treating Diabetes

We encourage patients to get regular health checkups, in order to identify diabetes early on. This can involve a glycated hemoglobin blood test, a fasting blood glucose test, and/or a random blood glucose test. After a physical examination and review of your medical history, your provider will determine which test(s) are necessary. Once your diagnosis is confirmed, your care team will design a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific needs.
