Diabetes Screening in Bellevue & Redmond
Diabetes is a common and serious disease. However, most people are unaware that they have this serious illness. Because often there are no symptoms with diabetes, early screening may help people avoid the more serious complications of this disease, including chronic hyperglycemia that’s associated with long-term damage of the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart, and blood vessels.
Persons with undiagnosed diabetes have a significantly higher risk for stroke, coronary heart disease, and peripheral vascular disease. Individuals with diabetes also have a greater likelihood of abnormal cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity.
Who Should Be Screened for Diabetes?
According to the American Diabetes Association, all patients should be screened for diabetes at three-year intervals beginning at age 45, especially people who are overweight or obese. If multiple risk factors are present, screening should be done at an earlier age and more frequently. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends that adults with high blood pressure or high cholesterol be screened for type 2 diabetes (insulin-resistant diabetes) in an effort to reduce cardiovascular disease.
If you feel you fit this criteria, or you just want to be on the safe side, give Bel-Red Internal Medicine a call and set up an appointment for your screening today.
