More about diabetes

Diabetes is a long-term disease. Anyone can get diabetes. Diabetes happens when there is too much sugar in the blood. The amount of sugar in your blood must not get too high or too low. After years of living with diabetes, some people may start to have problems with their heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves and feet. Some people may get heart disease and high blood pressure. To slowdown the problems related to your disease, it is important to keep your blood sugar under control.

The good news is that with the right care, people with diabetes can have healthy, active lives. Much of this care is self-managed. This means that if you have diabetes, you will have things to do every day to stay healthy.

Some symptoms of diabetes are:

  • Low energy
  • Feeling tired
  • Feeling very thirsty
  • Urinating a lot
  • Unusual weight loss
  • Blurry vision
  • Infections that keep coming back

You can still live a healthy, active life with diabetes. The best thing you can do is learn about diabetes so you can take care of yourself. We can help. Just give Member Services a call at 1-888-350-3447 (TTY/TDD: 711) Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. PST a call.
