Tingling, Pain, or numbness in the hands/feet?
Obviously, if you are feeling any of these symptoms I highly recommend you go see a doctor ASAP. Putting this off can result in very serious repercussions. Think of it like this, if you have to contemplate any of these symptoms then GET CHECKED. It is better to be safe than sorry, especially with something this serious.
Don’t think its real serious? Check out the statistics.Diabetes affects 24 millionpeople in the U.S., but only 18 million know they have it. About 90% of those people have type two diabetes.Diabetes is often called the silent killer because of its easy-to-miss symptoms.
The statistics are amazing, and so many people do not even know they have this disease. The stats state that 24 million people are affected by diabetes in the United States, and only 18 million know that they have it or have been diagnosed. That means there is a total of 6 million people that do not even realize they have diabetes. I remember when I was part of that 6 million, and now that I have been diagnosed its scary to realize that I had such a serious disease and did not even know!
