Blood Test Pin Prick on a Finger

Diabetes can be a devastating disease, but it does not have to be. Careful management is the key to living with this condition. To make this management easier we offer a number of dedicated services in English to people living on the Costa Blanca.

Plan membership

As people with diabetes have special health needs, we offer a Medcare membership plan tailored specifically for diabetic patients.

Screening

There are an estimated 850,000 people in the UK with undiagnosed diabetes. If left untreated, the disease can have devastating consequences. With better diagnosis and assessment of risks, up to 80 per cent of cases could by delayed or prevented. Medcare offers fasting blood tests to screen for diagnosis.

What are the warning signs?

Sometimes type 2 diabetes can develop without any warnings signs. In fact, about a third of all people who have type 2 don’t know they have it. That’s why it’s important to talk to your doctor about your risk for the disease and determined if you should be tested.

Common warnings signs include:

  • Increased thirst
  • Increased hunger (especially after eating)
  • Dry mouth
  • Frequent urination or urine infections
  • Unexplained weight loss (even though you are eating and feel hungry)
  • Fatigue (weak, tired feeling)
  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches
  • Diabetic coma (loss of consciousness)

If you have any of the above mentioned warnings signs, give Medcare a call and schedule a diabetes test.
