Type 2 Diabetes
What are the symptoms of diabetes?
If you have diabetes, you might experience some of the following symptoms:
- Extreme hunger
- Unexplained weight loss
- Frequent thirst
- Increased urination
- Blurry vision
- Frequent infections
- Slow-healing wounds
You may not notice diabetes symptoms, especially in its early stages, so it’s important to get screened for diabetes if you’re at risk of developing it.
What are my diabetes treatment options?
Your New York Medical Vascular Care provider reviews your medical history and symptoms and uses a blood test to confirm diabetes. They might recommend additional diagnostic tests to detect or rule out other health problems.
Diabetes treatments often include weight loss, healthy eating, controlling carbohydrate intake, regular exercise, and taking oral medications or insulin as needed.
Don’t let uncontrolled diabetes cause serious health problems when simple treatments are available. Schedule an appointment with New York Medical Vascular Care by phone or book online today.
