Is Diabetes Lurking In Your Body
Without You Even Knowing It?

We sail through our days never considering that we might be carrying around a deadly disease that could threaten our lives or our health. Believe it or not, it's entirely possible to be diabetic and miss the signs. If you get an annual physical, your doctor will be checking for indications that your blood sugar level is higher or lower than it should be, so you don't need to be anxious about it in that case. However, if you're not getting an annual physical, you need to know what to look for.

An alternative to visiting your doctor is to attend a free health fair where they are offering free screenings for diabetes, if only for your peace of mind. When these health screenings are offered, they almost invariably turn up some cases of diabetes that were not known about beforehand.

This article will give you some clues you can look for so you can determine whether or not you need a blood sugar screen so you can know for sure whether you do or do not have this disease.


  1. Frequent urination
  2. Excessive thirst
  3. Extreme hunger
  4. Unexplained loss of weight
  5. Extreme fatigue

If you have noticed any of these, you do need to be screened for diabetes either by a doctor or at a health clinic.


Included in symptoms are all the signs above, but the following also usually accompany diabetes:

  1. Frequent infections
  2. Blurred vision
  3. Cuts and bruises that are slow to heal
  4. Tingling and numbness in hands and feet
  5. Recurring skin infections
  6. Gum infections
  7. Bladder infections

You should have been diagnosed long before these begin to emerge; however, if you are experiencing this set of symptoms or even more than one of them, by all means, it's important that you be screened as soon as possible.

The purpose of this article is not to make you anxious about your health; it's to catch diabetes at its earliest possible stage so it can be successfully treated and you can look forward to a long and healthy life.
