The Bay - Could I Have Diabetes and Not Even Know it?


Signs of Silent or Undiagnosed Diabetes
• Increased Urination
• More Frequent Urination at Night
• Increased Thirst
• Unexplained Weight Loss
• Increased Hunger
• Nerve Pain or Numbness


At least 1 in 14 people has diabetes, and the risk of diabetes for people of color over the age of 45 can be four times  greater. Although there is no cure, diabetes can be managed by keeping blood sugar levels normal, maintaining proper  nutrition and exercise, and monitoring insulin and other medications.

Signs of silent or undiagnosed diabetes can include: increased urination, more frequent urination at night,Dr. Harleen Kaur, MD Family Medicine Practitioner increased thirst,  unexplained weight loss, increased hunger, nerve pain or numbness. “If you are experiencing all or a combination of these symptoms, see your doctor,” says Dr. Kaur. “And remember, having diabetes doesn’t mean you have to go it  alone.”

People with diabetes should work with a diabetes care team which may include a family medicine physician, dietitian,  diabetes educator, eye doctor, foot doctor, dentist, and possibly an exercise trainer. But remember, you are the most  important member of your diabetes care team. Your health care team is there to help you manage your diabetes and maintain your good health.

Dr. Kaur encourages anyone recently diagnosed with diabetes to work closely with their family physician to learn all  they can to monitor their diabetes. “Together you will find that, with proper management, people with diabetes can  lead a full and active life,” says Dr. Kaur.
