Learn which symptoms to routinely check for when managing diabetes.

Let’s get serious and take a hard look at the statistics: as many as 29 million Americans are currently diagnosed with diabetes—over 9 percent of the entire population.

Diabetes is more rampant in the United States than ever before, and providing care for a loved one impacted by diabetes symptoms is an everyday event. While each person’s experience with the disease is unique, there are certain diabetes symptoms that can crop up with little to no warning, requiring that diabetics and their care providers alike be on the lookout each and every day.

Following are just a few important examples from the American Diabetes Association of diabetes symptoms to watch for on a routine basis:

 

    • Overwhelming fatigue
    • Blurred vision
    • Cuts and/or bruises that are slow to heal
    • Reduced weight – even when you are eating more
  • Tingling, numbness, or pain in the hands and/or feet

 

Be sure to call the physician if you or a loved one who is diabetic experiences any of these diabetes symptoms.
