Diabetes Diagnosis and Treatment

Health Care professionals can diagnose diabetes, prediabetes, and gestational diabetes through blood tests. The blood tests show if your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high or low. Some people will not have any direct symptoms but may have some indirect risk factors for diabetes and need to be tested. Testing allows health care professionals to find diabetes sooner and work with their patients to manage diabetes and prevent complications. Doctors usually investigates type 1 diabetes in children and young adults. Because type 1 diabetes can run in families, a study called Trial Net offers free testing to family members of people with the disease, even if they don’t have symptoms. Experts suggests testing children between the ages of 10 and 18 who are overweight or obese and have at least two other risk factors for developing diabetes.
