Could you have diabetes?

Even though diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S., experts say that many people don’t know they can often prevent Type 2 diabetes. Knowing your risk can help you make better decisions and decrease your chance of getting diabetes. 

You may be at risk for Type 2 diabetes if:

  • You are overweight
  • You smoke
  • You have high blood pressure
  • You are not active
  • You have high cholesterol
  • You eat unhealthy food

Diabetes is a very serious disease when it’s not controlled. When your blood sugar is very high (above 200 mg/dl), you may have some of these signs and symptoms:

  • Feeling very hungry
  • Urinating (peeing) a lot 
  • Fatigue (being very tired)
  • Blurry vision
  • Losing weight without trying
