Diabetes impacts the lives of more than 34 million Americans, which adds up to more than 10% of the population. When you consider the magnitude of that number, it’s easy to understand why everyone needs to be aware of the signs of the disease. Untreated diabetes can cause serious complications and eventually become life threatening, but early detection increases the likelihood of successfully managing the disease with an effective treatment plan.

In fact, if you spot the signs of a potential problem at the prediabetes stage of the disease, you may be able to halt the progression before you ever develop Type 2 diabetes. Start by familiarizing yourself with the risk factors for diabetes and the signs you need to watch for that could indicate the onset of the disease.
