Signs of Untreated Diabetes
📌 High Blood Sugar Level

_One of the signs of untreated diabetes is high blood sugar. When you visit your healthcare provider, they will measure your blood sugar and tell you what range your blood glucose should fall in. Healthy blood sugar levels are usually between 70 and 130 mg/dL before meals and below 180 mg/dl two hours after meals.

📌 High blood sugar is also associated with many symptoms. If you notice any of the following symptoms, contact your healthcare provider right away about getting your blood glucose checked:

📌Increased thirst or hunger
📌Blurred vision
📌Frequent urination
📌Weight loss
📌Skin infections
📌Slow-healing cuts and sores

If your healthcare provider suspects you have diabetes or prediabetes (a precursor of type 2 diabetes), they will order other tests to confirm the diagnosis.
