Answer by Chrissy
Constant thirst and strange weigh loss/gain are symptoms of diabetes, but that does not necessarily mean you have it.
If you are concerned about it, you should certainly go see your doctor ASAP, he/she can test you and tell you if you have diabetes or not.

Answer by Type1Diabetic
Yeah I had the same symptoms as you. Always hungry, thirsty, peeing constantly because of being so thirsty, and I lost about 14 pounds.

Answer by cRaZy B***h
if u are losng between 10 to 15 pounds in around 2 weeks and have been using the bathroom alot and drinking constanly alot of water
u might do have diabetes
ask your doctor!!

Answer by intdesigner925
It seems as though you have some of the signs. I had this happen in September 2006, I lost 25 pounds in two weeks. Doctors said it was the flu. I kept getting worse, until I ended up in the hospital with diabetic ketoacidosis. And trust me you dont want to get there because it can result in death. I was literally blacking out in the hospital. My sugar was 600. Here are some signs of diabetes and ketoacidosis.

Diabetes:

Feeling thirsty.
Having to urinate more than usual.
Feeling more hungry than usual.
Losing weight without trying to.
Feeling very tired.
Feeling cranky.
Other signs of type 2 diabetes may include:

Infections and cuts and bruises that heal slowly.
Blurred vision.
Tingling or numbness in your hands or feet.
Trouble with skin, gum, or bladder infections.
Vaginal yeast infections.

Ketoacidosis:

Sluggishness, extreme tiredness.
Extreme thirst, despite large fluid intake.
Constant urination
Fruity smell to breath, similar to nail polish remover (acetone).
Hyperventilation, at first rapid and shallow, then progressively deeper and less rapid.
Extreme weight loss.
Oral Thrush and/or persistent vaginal yeast infections may be present; this is because the normal fungal flora present in the oral cavity and cervix are disrupted
Muscle wasting.
Agitation / Irritation / Aggression / Confusion
Vomiting, nausea
Extreme pain in shoulders, neck and chest

There are also late signs of diabetic ketoacidosis:

At this point, DKA is life-threatening and medical attention should be sought immediately.

Emesis (vomiting), although this is not always a sign of late-stage ketoacidosis, and can occur both in early-stage ketoacidosis and in non-ketoacidic hyperglycaemia.
Confusion.
Abdominal pain.
Loss of appetite.
Flu-like symptoms.
Lethargy and apathy.
Extreme weakness.
Kussmaul breathing (“air hunger”). A type of hyperventilation where patients breathe very deeply at a normal or increased rate. This is a sign of severe acidosis.
Unconsciousness (a variety of diabetic coma) after prolonged DKA. At this stage, speedy medical attention is imperative.
Death

I urge you to go to your doctor ASAP. Also when you get there ask them to test your blood sugar. Try to go during the morning and dont eat that way they can take your fasting sugar.

Answer by RainDateChick
It sounds like diabetes may be a possibility. Here’s some general info about diabetes:

First off, there are two types of diabetes.

Type 1 (aka juvenile diabetes)– Is caused solely by genetics. While you might not necessarily have a family history of it, it is still genetic. It is not caused by weight gain or eating habits. Though it is often referred to as juvenile diabetes and usually occurs in children, teens, and young adults, it can develop at any age. In a type 1 diabetic, their body’s pancreas does not produce insulin or produces very little. (insulin is a hormone which is released when you eat and keeps your blood sugar levels balanced.) Treatment is usually daily insulin injections or using an insulin pump along with carefully monitoring your carbohydrate intake.

Type 2 (aka adult onset diabetes)– Is usually brought on by obesity or unhealthy eating habits. Contrary to the name, in the last several years due to the increase in childhood obesity, it has been showing up in kids as well as adults. Type two diabetes is when the pancreas still produces insulin, but the body does not know how to use it. Treatment is usually a medication in pill form which helps the body absorb and use the insulin it produces.

Symptoms for both types are basically the same, though they may be more noticeable in type 2:

* Frequent urination
* Excessive thirst
* Extreme hunger
* Unusual weight loss
* Increased fatigue
* Irritability
* Blurry vision

If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should talk to your doctor and have tests run. The preliminary tests are very basic. One is a “2-hour post-prandium blood sugar” test… basically, you eat a meal, 2 hours later, they check your blood sugar via a finger prick… TA-DA all done. They may also do a glucose tolerance test which is a little more in depth.

You can also visit www.jdrf.org for more information. They have a lot of good info and a support team who you can email with questions and will get back to you within 48 hours.

Do you have to have glucose and Ketones in your urine to be diagnosed with diabetes?
I have a few symptoms of diabetes…
I am always needing the loo at night
I can never get enough sugar, I eat crazy amounts of chocolate
I have been feeling dehydrated recently.
However I tested my urine and glucose and ketones are negitive…but blood and protien high…

Answer by Peter Curtis
They are 2 factors in the symptoms of diabetes, but you also need a bloodtest, make appointment to see doctor.

Answer by Noccie
Yes, ketones and glucose in the urine are the most basic way to test for diabetes.
If you have neither, you don’t have diabetes.
A person with undiagnosed diabetes will have at least sugar in their urine but may not have ketones.
Frankly, what you describe doesn’t sound like diabetes at all. Craving surag has nothing to do with diabetes. Going to the loo at night isn’t uncommon. Feeling dehydrated comes with winter weather.

Blurred vision
In women, frequent vaginal infections
In men and women, yeast infections
Trouble getting or maintaining an erection
Dry mouth
•Lack of interest and concentration
Slow-healing sores or cuts
Itching skin, especially in the groin or vaginal
numbness/tingling in the hands/feet
Areas of darkened skin

i have it 5 years now ,my sister 15 year old have it since she was 6
run in both of of my family my ma sisters and brothers have it and their kids and also their kids
my da mother had it and die from it in 2005 98 years old and his brothers and sisters and their kids had it to we are over run with 1 ,2

Common symptoms for lows include the following:
Trembling
Clamminess
Palpitations
Anxiety
Sweating
Hunger

Because the brain is deprived of glucose, a second set of symptoms follows:
Difficulty in thinking
Confusion
Headache
Seizures
Coma
Ultimately, death

Gestational diabetes
During pregnancy body releases a lot of harmone which may sometimes interfere with the body’s usual response to insulin, which develops insulin resistance like the type 2 diabetes. Gestational diabetes is fully treatable but requires careful medical supervision throughout the pregnancy. It may improve or disappear after delivery. About 20%–50% of affected women develop type 2 diabetes

There are 2 tests for Gestational Diabetes. A one hour fasting glucose test and a 3 hour test. In both cases, you drink a special drink that is very high in glucose (sugar) on an empty stomach and they test to see how your body handles the sugar.

If they said you had slightly high sugar, you probably did the one hour test. To double check, they are bringing you in for the 3 hour test.

Make sure you have totally fasted…no food or drink other than water for 8 hours before the test. Eating before the test will effect your sugar numbers after the test. After you drink the drink…go for a walk…move around, don’t just sit or lay down. Moving and exercise lowers blood sugar.

If you do get diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes, it is a real concern. One thing to remember is, you will not have diabetes when you have the baby. Giving birth cures Gestational Diabetes. Doctors do not know what causes it during pregnancy and there is no real way to fix it if it happens. You should eat a whole food diet, stay away from processed foods, foods with additives (diet cokes, fast food…) and eat high protein. (try to get 100grams a day).

Gestational Diabetes can cause the baby to grow large and cause complications toward the end of pregnancy. Symptoms to look for are – Sudden extreme swelling of the feet, hands and face (not normal swelling…sudden and extreme), pain under the ribs on the left side of your body. If that happens, call the doc right away.

The doc will work with you, rest and diet to help manage the diabetes to get you as far along in the pregnancy as possible. You CAN carry full term with hard work. However, if your sugar numbers continue to rise and go out of control along with getting the symptoms above, they will have to induce labor or send you for a c-section around 36-38 weeks.

If is fairly common and can be managed. Read up on it and talk with your doctor.

How blood glucose is measured
In home testing, blood glucose levels are usually measured in terms of how many millimoles of glucose there is in a litre of blood. A millimole is a measurement that is used to define the concentration of glucose in your blood. The measurement is expressed as millimoles per litre, or mmol/l, for short.

Blood glucose levels vary from person to person and the amount of glucose in your blood will also change throughout the day. Therefore, there is no such thing as an ‘ideal’ blood glucose level.

However, a normal blood glucose level is between 4.0-6.0 mmol/l before meals (preprandial), and less than 10.0 mmol/l two hours after meals

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

Common warnings signs of diabetes 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 of diabetes, give your doctor a call and schedule a diabetes test. With the right diabetes diet, regular exercise, and medications, if needed, you can manage type 2 diabetes and live an active, productive life.

Answer by Tin S
And the answer is:

Diabetes Type 1: Symtoms of type 2

In type 1, the pancreas stop producing insulin, due to autuimmune response or possibly viral attack on pancreas. In absence of insulin, body cells does not get glucose for producing ATP (Adenosin Triphosphate) units which results into primary symptom in the form of nausea and vomiting. In latter stage which leads to ketoacidosis in which body starts breaking down muscle tissue and fat for energy, there is consequently fast weight loss. Dehydration is also usually observed due to electrolyte disturbance. In advance stages even coma and death, are being witnessed.

Diabetes Type 2:

* Increased fatigue : Due to inefficiency of cell to metabolise glucose, reserve fat of body is metabolised to gain energy. When fat is broken down in the body, it uses more energy as compared to glucose, hence body goes in negative calorie effect, which results in fatigue.
* Polydipsia : As the concentration of glucose increases in the blood, brain receives signal for diluting it and in its counteraction we feel thirsty.
* Polyuria: Increase in urine production is the result seen when excess of glucose is present in body. Body tries to get rid of the extra sugar in the blood by excreting it through the urine. This can also lead to dehydration because excreting the sugar which carries a large amount of water out of the body along with it.
* Polyphegia : The hormone insulin is also responsible for stimulating hunger. In order to cope up with high sugar levels in blood, body produces insulin which leads to increased hunger.
* Weight flactuation : Factors like loss of water (polyuria), glucosuria , metabolism of body fat and protein may lead to loss of weight. Few cases may show weight gain due to increased appetite.
* Blurry vision : Hyperosmolar hyperglycemia nonketotic syndrome is the condition when body fluid is pulled out of tissues including lenses of eye, which affects the ability of lenses to focus resulting in blurry vision.
* Irritability : It is one of the sign of high blood sugar because of the inefficient supply of glucose to brain and other body organs, which makes us feel tired and uneasy.
* Infections : Certain signals from the body is given whenever there is fluctuation of blood sugar (due to suppression of immune system) by frequent infections of fungal or bacterial like skin infection or UTI (urinary tract infection).
* Poor wound healing : High blood sugar resists the flourishing of WBC, (white blood cell) which are responsible for body immune system. When these cells do not function accordingly, wound healing is not at good pace. Secondly, long standing diabetes leads to thickening of blood vessels which may affect proper circulation of blood in different body parts.

Lets hope you do not have diabetes.

Answer by Ms. T
Type 1 – unusual thirst, frequent urination – extreme hunger but loss of weight, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting, extreme weakness and fatigue, irritability and mood changes.

Type 2 – frequent infections that are not easily healed, unusual thirst, frequent urination – extreme hunger but loss of weight, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting, extreme weakness and fatigue, irritability and mood changes, dry, itchy skin, and tingling or loss of feeling in the hands and feet.

Answer by lyricalseduction69
you really should check with the doctor

Answer by 2003keep
Please make a point of seeing your doctor for testing, coz its the only way you can tell.There is a possibility for Type 1 diabetes.

Answer by dan
CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR = Final diagnosis is made by measuring the blood glucose concentration.

The classical symptoms are polyuria and polydipsia which are, respectively, frequent urination and increased thirst and consequent increased fluid intake. Symptoms may develop quite rapidly (weeks or months) in type 1 diabetes, particularly in children. However, in type 2 diabetes symptoms usually develop much more slowly and may be subtle or completely absent.

Type 1 diabetes may also cause a rapid yet significant weight loss (despite normal or even increased eating) and irreducible mental fatigue. All of these symptoms except weight loss can also manifest in type 2 diabetes in patients whose diabetes is poorly controlled, although unexplained weight loss may be experienced at the onset of the disease.

Blurred vision is a common complaint leading to a diabetes diagnosis; type 1 should always be suspected in cases of rapid vision change, whereas with type 2 change is generally more gradual, but should still be suspected.

Patients (usually with type 1 diabetes) may also initially present with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), an extreme state of metabolic dysregulation characterized by the smell of acetone on the patient’s breath; a rapid, deep breathing known as Kussmaul breathing; polyuria; nausea; vomiting and abdominal pain; and any of many altered states of consciousness or arousal (such as hostility and mania or, equally, confusion and lethargy).

What are my chances of diabetes?
I’m 15, I don’t think anybody in my family has it, I know there are 2 types and I know how they are so no need to explain.
What are the signs and symptoms for each?
Will eating excess sugar and seeing how my body reacts to it give me some hint?

Answer by WriteonPam
For the love of god! Go talk to your doctor! Nobody is better at telling you the ‘facts’ besides him. I’m 54 and I just became a type 2 diabetic and one thing I learned is that sugar is not the only problem. I’m amazed at carbohydrates and fat do.Today my daughter wanted Taco Bell. I went through the whole menu to see what was lightest on Carbs. To my surprise it wasn’t the salads. It was the Mexican Pizza. There was more fat in it but less carbs and for a diabetic, carbs (and sugar-which are the worst carbs) get your blood sugar jumping around more than anything.
Are you thirsty all the time…and I mean really thirsty.
Are you overweight?
Are you hungry all the time but maybe losing weight because of upset stomach?
Are you dizzy or light-headed? Do you get the shakes after a huge meal at McDonald’s and reach for a bar or coke to feel good again?
These are just a few but I’m not a professional. They are the only ones who can call it. If they say ‘pre-diabetic’ take their advice. I didn’t and I’m on insulin now.
Go to your doctor.

Symptoms in children are often different:

Most children are obese or overweight
Increased urination is mild or even absent
Many children develop a skin problem called acanthosis, characterized by velvety, dark colored patches of skin

Depression is not generally listed as a complication of diabetes. However, it can be one of the most common and dangerous complications. The rate of depression in diabetics is much higher than in the general population. Diabetics with major depression have a very high rate of recurrent depressive episodes within the following five years.
Nuts prevent type 2 diabetes

There was great excitement in the press very recently when researchers from Harvard studied more than 83,000 women and found that those who reported eating a handful of nuts or two tablespoons of peanut butter at least five times a week were more than 20 percent less likely to develop adult onset (type II) diabetes than those who rarely or never ate nuts. Type II diabetes develops when the body cannot properly use insulin. The women had been followed for up to sixteen years. The speculation is that the results apply to men as well as women. It’s not only the “good” fat in the nuts that work on heart health. The fiber and magnesium in nuts help maintain balanced insulin and glucose levels

There is no simple or obvious answer to your question. Type 1 diabetes typically presents with all of the following: increased appetite, weight loss despite increased intake, increased thirst, increased urination, and feeling quite ill. Type 2 diabetes typically presents with vague or no symptoms at all. Type 2 diabetes is often identified on a routine blood test. In some occasions the initial presentation is neuropathy. Less commonly visual problems may be the presentation. In addition there are a very long list of other presenting symptoms but these would be increasingly uncommon.

Answer by syl c.
\No early symptoms – many people have Type 2 diabetes without knowing it
Early mild symptoms – from moderate blood sugars (which are still dangerous and lead to serious complications):
Skin rashes
Skin infections
Athlete’s foot
Poor skin healing
Urinary tract infections
Candida
Thrush
Dry itchy skin
Flaky skin
Skin ulcers
Skin boils
Peripheral neuropathy
Paresthesias
Foot tingling
Foot numbness
Hand tingling
Hand numbness
Blurred vision
Sexual problems
Erectile failure
Unusual vaginal dryness
Premature menopause
Absent periods
Poor healing – any type of difficulty healing of minor infections, injury or after surgery.
Weight loss
Weight gain
Drowsiness
Malaise
Later more extreme symptoms when blood sugars get higher:
Excessive thirst
Excessive urination
Dehydration
Bed wetting – in children
Excessive hunger
Tiredness
Weight loss
Severe blurred vision
Muscle cramps
Muscle aches
Headaches
Irritability
Tiredness
Fatigue
Muscle weakness
Acne – often worsens from diabetes and improves once sugars controlled
Sexual problems
Erectile failure
Unusual vaginal dryness
Absent menstrual periods
Persistent fungal skin infections
Athlete’s foot
Tinea
Thrush (Candida)
Hyperglycemic Hyperosmolar Nonketotic Syndrome (HHNS) – a very severe life-threatening complication of high blood sugars
Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) – a very severe life-threatening complication of high blood sugars, requiring emergency treatment, which has very severe symptoms:
Nausea
Vomiting
Sweet-smelling fruity acetone breath
Breathing difficulty
Rapid Pulse
Abdominal pain – usually in children
Symptoms of Diabetes: Many people have no signs or symptoms. Symptoms can also be so mild that you might not even notice them. Five million people in the United States have type 2 diabetes and do not know it. Here is what to look for:
increased thirst
increased hunger
fatigue
increased urination, especially at night
weight loss
blurred vision
sores that do not heal
Sometimes people have symptoms but do not suspect diabetes. They delay scheduling a checkup because they do not feel sick. Many people do not find out they have the disease until they have diabetes complications, such as blurry vision or heart trouble. It is important to find out early if you have diabetes because treatment can prevent damage to the body from diabetes.

An early sign of kidney damage is when your kidneys leak small amounts of a protein called albumin (al-BYOO-min) into the urine.

With more damage, the kidneys leak more and more protein. This problem is called proteinuria (PRO-tee-NOOR-ee-uh). More and more wastes build up in the blood. This damage gets worse until the kidneys fail.

Some people with diabetes feel “run down” or have symptoms that may go unrecognized. Others have symptoms such as feeling thirsty, urinating frequently, losing weight, feeling tired, having blurred vision, getting skin infections, and having slow healing cuts and bruises. These problems should be reported to a doctor right away.

Hope this helps. In answering your question only symptoms as you requested were listed.

You can’t list all symptoms of DM, they don’t present all together but to answer your question there are 2 types of daibetes: Type 1 (which requires external insulin as a treatment due to complete absence of insulin) the presenting symptoms are usually at a young age with rapid loss of weight, obvious increase in appetite despite the weight loss, increase the frequency of urination & thus increase water intake, they present with complications (common) as diabetic ketoacidosis with acetone smell & deep rapid breathing, dehydration, there may be loss of consciousness…Type 2 (where there’s insulin secreted but there’s resistance to its effect or the number of receptors is decreased) these patients usually present with symptoms at an older age & they’re usually obese with either the same symptoms of type 1 (though not common) or present with complications of DM (as kidney affection, peripheral nerve affection, retinal hemorrhages & loss of vision) & mostly it’s discovered on routine examination (urine analysis or blood analysis)

Diabetes Type 1: Symtoms of type 2

In type 1, the pancreas stop producing insulin, due to autuimmune response or possibly viral attack on pancreas. In absence of insulin, body cells does not get glucose for producing ATP (Adenosin Triphosphate) units which results into primary symptom in the form of nausea and vomiting. In latter stage which leads to ketoacidosis in which body starts breaking down muscle tissue and fat for energy, there is consequently fast weight loss. Dehydration is also usually observed due to electrolyte disturbance. In advance stages even coma and death, are being witnessed.

Diabetes Type 2:

* Increased fatigue : Due to inefficiency of cell to metabolise glucose, reserve fat of body is metabolised to gain energy. When fat is broken down in the body, it uses more energy as compared to glucose, hence body goes in negative calorie effect, which results in fatigue.
* Polydipsia : As the concentration of glucose increases in the blood, brain receives signal for diluting it and in its counteraction we feel thirsty.
* Polyuria: Increase in urine production is the result seen when excess of glucose is present in body. Body tries to get rid of the extra sugar in the blood by excreting it through the urine. This can also lead to dehydration because excreting the sugar which carries a large amount of water out of the body along with it.
* Polyphegia : The hormone insulin is also responsible for stimulating hunger. In order to cope up with high sugar levels in blood, body produces insulin which leads to increased hunger.
* Weight flactuation : Factors like loss of water (polyuria), glucosuria , metabolism of body fat and protein may lead to loss of weight. Few cases may show weight gain due to increased appetite.
* Blurry vision : Hyperosmolar hyperglycemia nonketotic syndrome is the condition when body fluid is pulled out of tissues including lenses of eye, which affects the ability of lenses to focus resulting in blurry vision.
* Irritability : It is one of the sign of high blood sugar because of the inefficient supply of glucose to brain and other body organs, which makes us feel tired and uneasy.
* Infections : Certain signals from the body is given whenever there is fluctuation of blood sugar (due to suppression of immune system) by frequent infections of fungal or bacterial like skin infection or UTI (urinary tract infection).
* Poor wound healing : High blood sugar resists the flourishing of WBC, (white blood cell) which are responsible for body immune system. When these cells do not function accordingly, wound healing is not at good pace. Secondly, long standing diabetes leads to thickening of blood vessels which may affect proper circulation of blood in different body parts.

I wound up in the ER in DKA with a sugar of nearly 1000 when I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. Before that I had dropped over 15 pounds and was coping with the classic symptoms of diabetes on a hellish level.

Frequent urination,Excessive thirst,Extreme hunger,Unusual weight loss,increased fatigue,Blurry vision.you should go to endocrinologist and check you suger level.normal sugar in blood is 3.33 to 5.55 but after meal it can increase to 7 or 8.before checking blood suger level you should not have any meal.

Severe weight loss that kept going down and a numb patch on one leg that kept getting larger and larger. I didn’t notice the other “symptoms” until after starting on oral meds for treatment of this problem.

Answer by christina c
i complained to my psychiatrist that the floor was always shaking. i suffer from hallucinations. i thought maybe It was a new one or had to do with my meds. he immediately told me to make an appointment with my regular doctor to get tested. i did and much to my surprise i found that i was a diabetic. my medicines that i take always make me feel very thirsty and the more i would drink the more i had to urinate. so it never occurred to me. i didi find out that i was taking about two or three different medicines that can cause diabetes. i found out of course after i developed it.

Answer by Nature lover
I was watching the National Body Challenge and the twins were showing signs of pre-diabetes on the crease of their necks. The crease of the necks had a darker color then the rest of the neck.

So that is one sign of diabetes.

Answer by Thomas
Not everybody has the same symptoms but with diabetes type 1 you can:

* Be very thirsty
* Have to pee very often
* Have lost a lot of weight in little time
* Not see very well

The first two are very common.

You get diabetes type 2 when you are overweight.

Answer by dan
The classical symptoms are polyuria and polydipsia which are, respectively, frequent urination and increased thirst and consequent increased fluid intake.

Symptoms may develop quite rapidly (weeks or months) in type 1 diabetes, particularly in children. However, in type 2 diabetes symptoms usually develop much more slowly and may be subtle or completely absent.

Type 1 diabetes may also cause a rapid yet significant weight loss (despite normal or even increased eating) and irreducible mental fatigue.

All of these symptoms except weight loss can also manifest in type 2 diabetes in patients whose diabetes is poorly controlled, although unexplained weight loss may be experienced at the onset of the disease.

Final diagnosis is made by measuring the blood glucose concentration.

Blurred vision is a common complaint leading to a diabetes diagnosis; type 1 should always be suspected in cases of rapid vision change, whereas with type 2 change is generally more gradual, but should still be suspected.

Patients (usually with type 1 diabetes) may also initially present with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), an extreme state of metabolic dysregulation characterized by the smell of acetone on the patient’s breath; a rapid, deep breathing known as Kussmaul breathing; polyuria; nausea; vomiting and abdominal pain; and any of many altered states of consciousness or arousal (such as hostility and mania or, equally, confusion and lethargy).

In severe DKA, coma may follow, progressing to death. Diabetic ketoacidosis is a medical emergency and requires immediate hospitalization.

How much is a Diabetes test?

How much is a Diabetes test?
I’m hoping by my next physical or doctor’s check up I can also get screened to see if I have Diabeties. I’m only 17, though, and my parents still pay my medical bills. I feel bad about asking for money to do something that MIGHT NOT be there, especially since my dad’s been having some medical bills come up.

Also, if you could list all of the symptoms of diabeties (and I mean ALL of them) that would be great!

Thanks!

Answer by It’s That Guy
If you know anyone who is diabetic, he will have a blood glucose meter and would probably be happy to test you. The test strip for the meter is about 70 cents. That can rule out diabetes, but it can’t tell you for sure you have it.

Diabetes has MANY symptoms, and they’re different in different people. When a doctor suspects diabetes, he orders a whole range of tests, for lots of different problems that might look like diabetes.

The symptoms are frequent thirst and frequent urination, general tiredness, maybe a tingling or numbness in the toes or fingertips, trouble focussing your eyes, stiffness in the joints, sudden weight loss, loss of appetite, and maybe a dozen others. Usually when you are diagnosed with it you’ve had it for a while, and if you’ve had it long enough you might have sores on your feet or legs that won’t heal, you might lose your vision or have a heart attack or have kidney failure. Most people don’t get this far before it’s discovered, but it’s possible, and it used to be more common.

The thing is, you will know something is wrong. 8^<

I'll tell you another sign, in my case, that's kind of embarrassing. I noticed stuff growing in my toilet, a sort of mold. I would scrub it off and it would keep coming back after a few weeks. Much later, I read a book by a woman who mentioned the same problem. What it is, when your blood sugar gets high enough, the sugar spills over into your urine and you get mold in the toilet. Once you get your blood sugar under control once again, it goes away. (Warning, this next part is really gross). The full name of diabetes is 'diabetes melitus'. The melitus part means 'sweet like honey'--'mel' is the Greek word for honey. This is because they used to diagnose it in the old days by tasting your urine! 8^P Aren't you glad you live in the 21st century?
