Almost 10 million Americans have undiagnosed diabetes and another 86 million have prediabetes, a condition that often leads to diabetes. And most people with diabetes don’t experience symptoms until it’s too late.

Risk factors include:

  • A family history of diabetes (such as a mother, father, aunt, or uncle with diabetes)
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Having a sedentary lifestyle
  • Eating a high-carbohydrate, high-sugar diet
  • Previously having had diabetes during pregnancy

Have any of these risk factors? One of the most important things you can do is visit a primary care doctor who can order the right tests and evaluate your overall health.
