A new CDC report reveals some startling statistics about diabetes: 9.3% of the United States population now suffers from the disease, which claims the lives of 70,000 people each year while racking up an estimated $245 billion in medical expenses. Perhaps even more shocking is that nearly 28% of those with diabetes are currently undiagnosed. Here are five reasons why you may have diabetes and aren’t even aware of it.

1. People are indifferent about the signs and symptoms of diabetes
Many symptoms of diabetes are not considered dire, which is why people often fail to pay attention to them. Some of the most common symptoms include weight loss, weight gain, increased thirst, frequent urination and increased hunger. Many people who experience symptoms like these often consider them temporary conditions, not the warning signs of diabetes.
