It is important to seek medical care for yourself or anyone that you know that is having symptoms of diabetes right away. This is true even if the person is not known to be diabetic. When making the appointment tell them that you are concerned with diabetes.

It is estimated that over 40 million people have diabetes and do not know it.

If the person is known to be diabetic call your health care provider immediately if any of the following apply to their situation.

If the patient's blood sugar levels are not being controlled with normal treatment or their blood sugar levels remain above 200mg/dL consistently. Blood sugar levels remaining high persistently is the main factor in triggering complications.

You must also be concerned if blood sugar levels fall below 60 mg/dL.

This can be a sign of infection, kidney failure, liver failure or adrenal gland failure. It can also be an indication that the treatment plan that is being followed is too aggressive. In either case your doctor needs to be aware.
