Diabetes Symptoms to Take Seriously

professional caretakers diabetes careLet’s get serious and take a closer look at the numbers: About 29 million Americans have diabetes—that’s over 9 percent of the population.

Diabetes is more prevalent in the U.S. than ever before, and caring for someone affected by the disease is an everyday event. Naturally, some days will be better than others, and certain symptoms may crop up that require a physician’s attention and should not be ignored.

Here are a few important examples from the American Diabetes Association:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
  • Weight loss – even though you are eating more
  • Tingling, pain, or numbness in the hands/feet

Contact your physician if you or a family member with diabetes is experiencing any of these symptoms.
