Do you have diabetes or pre-diabetes (your blood sugar is higher than normal but not yet abnormal enough to be diagnosed as having diabetes)? Are you sure?
By 2020 it’s estimated that 1/3 of Americans will either be diabetic or pre-diabetic. 366 million people in the world have it now and diabetes is killing someone in the world every 7 seconds.
According to the American Diabetes Association, these are the symptoms of diabetes:
Type 1 Diabetes
- Frequent urination
- Unusual thirst
- Extreme hunger
- Unusual weight loss
- Extreme fatigue and Irritability
Type 2 Diabetes*
- Any of the type 1 symptoms
- Frequent infections
- Blurred vision
- Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
- Tingling/numbness in the hands/feet
- Recurring skin, gum, or bladder infections
*Often people with type 2 diabetes have no symptoms
For many people, diabetes is preventable. I’ve created this educational music video to help you learn how. It’s 2 minutes long with lots of easy to remember information. Don’t let diabetes take control of you.
