Diabetes

Diabetes happens when your body’s blood sugar levels are consistently higher than normal. Over time, diabetes can cause damage to your eyes, kidneys, nerves and heart. It’s important to check with your doctor if you have the following symptoms, even if they’re mild:

  • Increased thirst
  • Increased hunger
  • Feeling tired
  • Frequent peeing
  • Blurred vision
  • Sores or infections that heal slowly or won’t go away
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Tingling, pain or numbness in hands, legs and feet

With proper treatment and healthy habits, the millions of Americans living with diabetes can lead normal, active lives. If you think you might have diabetes, call your primary care provider (PCP) today.
