Think you may have diabetes?
Diabetes is a common condition that affects 37.3 million Americans with approximately 8.5 million undiagnosed.¹ Diabetes can be managed through education, lifestyle changes, and clinically proven diabetes supplies.
What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a condition in which the body has a lack of effective insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas. Insulin helps the body turn the sugar in food into energy. Individuals with diabetes either do not make insulin or are unable to use the insulin that their body makes.
- Type 1 diabetes (T1D): Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune reaction that stops the body from making insulin.
- Type 2 diabetes (T2D): Type 2 diabetes is when the body is unable to use the insulin it makes (insulin resistance). Eventually the body does not make enough insulin (insulin deficiency).
- Gestational diabetes (GD): Gestational diabetes is when women develop insulin resistance during pregnancy.
You may notice the following symptoms:
- Frequent urination
- Unusual thirst
- Weight loss
- Extreme fatigue
- Tingling in hands & feet
- Blurry vision
- Changes in appetite
- Weight gain/insulin resistance (T2D)
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, visit your healthcare provider to further discuss.
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, most insurances will cover diabetes supplies such as continuous glucose monitors (CGM), insulin pumps, testing meters, and related supplies.
