You probably know someone who has diabetes – more than 30 million Americans live with the disease that
limits the body’s ability to process food into usable energy. The good news is that diabetes can be well managed
by taking oral medications and making healthy changes to your weight, eating habits and physical activity. But is
diabetes something you should talk to your doctor about?
Feeling very thirsty or hungry and urinating more often are common symptoms of diabetes. But some people
with type 2 diabetes have very mild symptoms that may go unnoticed. Early detection and treatment can
decrease the risk of developing complications from diabetes.
You may have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if you:
- Are between the ages of 40–70
- Are overweight
- Had gestational diabetes
- Have a family history of diabetes
- Have high blood pressure
- Lack regular physical activity
A Laborers Health & Wellness clinician can talk with you about other risks factors and lifestyle changes you
can make to reduce your risk for diabetes or pre–diabetes. You don’t need a special appointment – simply
schedule your next annual preventive checkup. Your clinician will ask you questions about your medical history
and symptoms and may order blood tests to measure the amount of glucose in your blood.
