As April wraps up, Defeat Diabetes Month comes to a close. Diabetes is a metabolism disorder that has three main forms; type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. One can be more susceptible to diabetes depending on family history, weight, and ethnicity. Common symptoms include hunger, fatigue, urinating more often and being thirstier, dry mouth, itchy skin, and blurred vision. If you’re older than 45 or have other risks for diabetes it’s important to get tested. When you spot the condition early, you can avoid nerve damage, heart trouble, and other complications. Call Knott County Family Healthcare today to schedule your appointment to get tested for diabetes.
