Methodist Diabetes Webinar
September 21, 2020

Diabetes is one of the more prevalent life-threatening conditions among Americans today. It also puts a person at high risk to have complications if they contract Covid-19. I recently read that of the 30.3 million people with this disease, only around 7.2 million know that they have it. Houston Methodist Hospital in Sugar Land will be hosting a free webinar 6-8 p.m. October 8 to discuss identifying risks, methods of diagnosis, the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and living with the disease. When I first read that so many people are diabetic without knowing it, I was confused as I’ve always thought you’d be symptomatic. It turns out that often the early symptoms come on so gradually they go unnoticed. Early symptoms may include blurry vision, itchy skin, tingling or numbness in hand or feet, increased urination and fatigue. The webinar is free but you do need to register to attend  by calling (282)-274-7500 or visit events.houstonmethodist.org/diabetes-sl
