While many people with diabetes have symptoms that include voracious thirst, excessive hunger, frequent urination, fatigue and mood swings, it is estimated that up to one-third of all diabetics have virtually no symptoms and are unaware that they have the disease.
Early screening is essential in getting diabetes under control, before complications from the disease develop. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that all adults over the age of 45 get screened of type 2 diabetes every three years – especially if you’re overweight and/or if you have a family history of diabetes. If you at high risk, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists recommends that you get tested annually once you turn 30.
