This National Diabetes Month, our focus is simple: sharing the 5 symptoms of diabetes throughout South Africa. That’s what the Know Diabetes movement is all about. Did you know that half of all people with diabetes in South Africa are undiagnosed? We can change that by sharing these symptoms with everyone we know – family and friends – and asking them to share.
1. Extreme hunger
2. Extreme thirst
3. Needing to pee a lot
5. Blurry vision
Getting your blood sugar checked is quick and simple – the results are immediate and it only takes 5 minutes. Please encourage everyone you know to get their blood sugar checked every year!
