Diagnosing Type 2 Diabetes – Diabetes Series

By Global Health Media Project: https://globalhealthmedia.org

Many people have diabetes and don’t know it. Globally, almost half of all diabetes cases in adults are not diagnosed. Most people with diabetes have no symptoms, so you should test for it in those with risk factors, especially people over 40, with a big waistline and a close family member with diabetes. This video describes how to diagnose type 2 diabetes with a blood test.

This video is one of over 30 videos in our series on diabetes prevention and care. The videos are targeted for three audiences: health care workers – to help guide providers in developing countries in good diabetes care; people with diabetes – to improve their knowledge and home care; and the general public – to increase their understanding of diabetes, with the aim of greater awareness of the risks and symptoms, and ways to prevent type 2 diabetes.
