Do you think you might have diabetes?
First, see if you suffer from some of the following symptoms:
*Frequent need to urinate
*Rapid weight loss
One of these on their own doesn't really mean anything. Several all at the same time might.
I have all the symptoms! Does that mean I have diabetes?
No-one here on this forum can answer this question for you. As a group we might know a thing or two about diabetes but there is only ONE group of people on the whole planet that can tell you whether you have diabetes or not - doctors.
If you think you have diabetes, don't umm and ahh about it. Don't bother getting some blood or urine testing kit from a pharmacy - at the most they'll point you in the right direction but they're by no means definitive. Don't kid yourself that you don't like doctors or hospitals. No-one does. But they're here to help.
IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE DIABETES BUT AREN'T SURE, GO AND SEE A DOCTOR.
Then we'll be able to help you with all the rest.
