How do I know if I have diabetes?

You can have your fasting blood glucose tested at your primary care physician's office.  A fasting blood glucose level of 126 mg/dl or higher is indicative of diabetes. 

 

Symptoms of diabetes include:

Frequent urination

Frequent thirst

Extreme hunger even if you are eating

Slow healing wounds

 

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, schedule a visit with your physician.
