Diabetes Aware Health Assessment
Are you concerned that you or a loved one may have a form of diabetes? The American Diabetes Association recommends that adults should have a fasting blood glucose test at age 45. Those with normal results should be re-tested every three years to ensure good health.
Adults and children are susceptible to developing diabetes at any age. Many people with diabetes often fail to notice symptoms. If you notice any of the following symptoms, contact your physician:
- Frequent urination
- Blurred Vision
- Unexplained Weight Loss
- Frequent infections
- Wounds/sores that will not heal
