Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem harmless. Early detection and treatment is critical to decreasing the risk of developing complications of diabetes.

Diabetes symptoms may include:

  • Frequent urination
  • Excessive thirst
  • Extreme hunger
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Increased fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Blurry vision

If you have one or more of these diabetes symptoms, see your doctor right away. You can also take The American Diabetes Association's Online Diabetes Risk Test to find out if you are at risk for diabetes. To learn more, call 508-992-6553 Ext. 218.
