Diabetes

What is Prediabetes?

Pre-diabetes means your blood sugar is higher than normal, but not high enough to be diabetes. It's a warning sign. You can still make changes to prevent diabetes.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a condition where your body has trouble managing sugar levels in your blood.

There are two main types:

  • Type 1 Diabetes: Your body doesn’t make insulin.
  • Type 2 Diabetes: Your body doesn’t use insulin well.

Both types mean sugar can't get into your cells right, so it builds up in your blood. Too much sugar in your blood can cause a lot of different problems.

What to Do if You Have Symptoms

Common symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Feeling very thirsty
  • Going to the bathroom a lot, especially at night
  • Feeling very tired
  • Losing weight without trying
  • Genital itching or thrush
  • Cuts and wounds take longer to heal
  • Blurred vision
