Diabetes is a chronic disease in which the body cannot produce enough insulin to control glucose levels. There are two kinds of diabetes, type 1 diabetes is a genetic disorder that often shows up early in life, and type 2 is largely diet-related and develops over time. If you have type 1 diabetes, your immune system is attacking and destroying the insulin-producing cells in your pancreas, medication can be required.

Who should undergo diabetes testing?

In its early stages, diabetes may or may not cause many symptoms. You should get tested if you experience any of the early symptoms that do sometimes occur, including:

  • being extremely thirsty
  • feel tired all the time
  • feel very hungry, even after eating
  • having blurred vision
  • urinating more often than usual
  • having wounds or cuts that won't heal

Some people should be tested for diabetes even if they aren't experiencing symptoms. It is recommended that you undergo diabetes testing if you're overweight (body mass index greater than 25) and fall into any of the following categories:

  • You have high blood pressure, high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, or heart disease.
  • You have a family history of diabetes.
  • You have a personal history of abnormal blood sugar levels or signs of insulin resistance.
  • You don't engage in regular physical activity.
  • You're a woman with a history of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) or gestational diabetes.
