As many as 25% of all adults over the age of 60 are currently living with diabetes – a  demanding disease that should never go untreated and that requires careful, ongoing management. If neglected, diabetes can lead to:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Blindness
  • And even amputation

Managing diabetes symptoms is an everyday occurrence, and there will be certain days that you naturally will feel better than others. Contact us online or call us at (866) 940-4343 to learn how we can help you keep your loved one’s diabetes under control.

Red flag signs of diabetes symptoms

Yet, there are some signs of diabetes symptoms that should never be ignored, and that call for the immediate attention of a physician: 

  • Urinating frequently
  • Feeling extremely hungry or thirsty
  • Feelings similar to drunkenness
  • Unusual behaviors, which may also indicate low blood sugar
  • Infections, bloody or swollen gums, or foot sores
  • Sudden changes in the eyes: vision, pain, or seeing lights or spots floating within the field of vision
  • Any signs that could indicate heart problems or disease
