Texans are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as more than 1.8 million people suffer from the disease, and thousands may have diabetes and not know it!
It is the sixth leading cause of death in the state of Texas, and the fourth leading cause of death among the African-American and Hispanic communities in Texas.
Diabetes often goes undiagnosed because many of its symptoms seem so harmless.
Recent studies indicate that the early detection of diabetes symptoms and treatment can decrease the chance of developing the complications of diabetes.
