According to the American Diabetes Association, about 37 million Americans have diabetes and another 96 million are considered to be pre-diabetic, and though they may be dealing with symptoms of the disease, almost 90% have no idea they are at risk.

It is important to be aware of the symptoms associated with diabetes. Common symptoms include frequent urination; extreme thirst; feeling hungry, though you are eating or recently did so; extreme fatigue; blurred vision; and slow healing cuts or bruises.
