Could You Have Diabetes?

Approximately 500,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed every year. More than 16 million Americans are believed to have diabetes, but half are not aware that they may have the disease. Symptoms vary or may not even be apparent. A simple blood screening is the first step. Common symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Intense hunger
  • Blurred vision
  • Unexplained weight loss or weight gain
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Itchy skin
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Skin infections
  • Numbness or tingling in fingers or toes
  • Sores that are slow to heal (especially on the feet)

Diabetes Management programs are available to individuals with diabetes by a physician's referral only. If you do not have a personal physician, you may select a physician on the Corpus Christi Medical Center website, visit www.ccmedicalcenter.com.
