Risk factors for Diabetes include:

   •  Having family members with diabetes
   •  Obesity
   •  Not getting regular cardiovascular exercise
   •  Having high blood pressure or high cholesterol
   •  Having pre-diabetes, or slightly high faster blood sugar levels
   •  Having a history of gestational diabetes

Although, it is important to remember that there are people who develop diabetes who do not have any of these risk factors. Some early symptoms of diabetes include:

   •  Increased thirst
   •  Increased urination
   •  Increased hunger
   •  Vision changes

Stay Healthy, Dr. Jeff M.D. • If you have any of these, it is important to follow up with your doctor!
