According to the Mayo Clinic, Diabetes refers to a group of diseases that affect how your body uses blood glucose, commonly called blood sugar. Glucose is vital to your health because it’s the main source of energy for the cells that make up your muscles and tissues. It’s your body’s main source of fuel. Diabetes is a common disease and often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless. Recent studies indicate that the early detection of diabetes symptoms and treatment can decrease the chance of developing the complications of diabetes.
If you have diabetes, no matter what type, it means you have too much glucose in your blood, although the reasons may differ. Too much glucose can lead to serious health problems.
According to the Connecticut Department of Health, more than 163,000 adults age 18 years and older have been diagnosed with Diabetes. There are over 70,000 Connecticut adults who are estimated to have undiagnosed diabetes.
