Undiagnosed Diabetes

Diabetes may be undiagnosed in many, but electronic record searches may identify these patients.

 

(dailyRx News) Left untreated, diabetes can lead to a host of health problems, such as heart attack, stroke and kidney disease. The condition, however, may go undetected in many patients. If a person’s blood sugar stays at a high level because of untreated diabetes, it can damage the heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves and other parts of the body over time. Medication and lifestyle changes like diet and exercise can keep the complications at bay.
