Diagnosing Diabetes

A third of the 9 million American women who have diabetes don't know it, aren't getting treatment and are at risk for more serious problems, including kidney failure, heart disease and blindness, according to the U.S. General Services Administration. See your health care provider if you have any of these symptoms: frequent urination, excessive thirst, extreme fatigue or weakness, slow healing of wounds and infections, blurred vision or numbness or tingling in hands or feet.
