Is it true that a lot of people don't know they even have diabetes?

As hard as it may seem to believe, a lot of people don't even realize or know that they have diabetes. There are variety of reasons why this happens, but what's even more shocking is the fact that there are literally millions of people who have a condition referred to as pre-diabetes. This is basically a situation in which a person is one or two steps away from being a full-blown diabetic.

There are certain symptoms typically associated with having diabetes. If you notice the symptoms are occurring to you on a relatively frequent basis, there's a reasonable chance that you may have diabetes, and you should definitely get a blood test to confirm whether or not that's the case. But let's talk a little bit about what some of the symptoms are, just so you have a basic idea of what we're talking about.

One very common symptom associated with diabetes is constantly feeling a high degree of fatigue. Needless to say, anybody can feel a bit fatigued after a long day at work. However, if you notice that this type of symptom is one that is occurring on a frequent basis, it could suggest you may have diabetes.

Another symptom that is oftentimes associated with diabetes is feeling numbness or tingling in your hands or feet. The reason why these symptoms occur is because diabetes can ultimately affect the blood flow to your hands and feet. As a result, the tingling is caused by a lack of blood circulation. Therefore, you really need to take that particular type of symptom seriously.

Something else to keep in mind is that you can sometimes begin to experience blurry vision. Again, any one of these symptoms taken by itself doesn't necessarily mean you have diabetes. It's only when you start to notice a trend. A simple blood test can tell you for sure whether or not you have diabetes.

So yeah, a lot of people actually don't know they have diabetes. Don't let yourself be one of those people, and then ultimately suffer the consequences of having ignored your diabetes for many years.
