Know the signs of diabetes

In Maryland, an estimated 623,000 people have diabetes. Of these approximately 156,000 have diabetes and do not know it. *
Common symptoms:

  • Urinating often
  • Feeling very thirsty
  • Feeling very hungry—even though you are eating
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
  • Weight loss—even though you are eating more (type 1)

Early detection and treatment of diabetes can decrease the risk of developing the complications of diabetes.
