Hi am new here I am not sure if I have diabetes and going to go in for my testing on Friday to get to the bottom of my symptoms which I would like some more opinions from many that knows a lot about diabetes…
I am have been experiencing frequent urinations for over a year now and it is the worst at night, I could get up every 5-15 minutes to go which also gives me difficulty sleeping thru out the night. I have also been so hungry where my stomach keeps growling and will not stop until I eat something, I dont know if I should mention how many calories I eat a day but lets just say that I have kids and I eat more now than when I did when I was pregnant. I am not obese.
Lately I have been experiencing extreme thirst where I know for a fact I am not dehydrated as it would be impossible for the amount of water I drink sometimes even with some salt so I can cool down my frequent urination but that doesnt help either, but sometimes I am so thirsty I feel like I could pass out if I dont drink anything… My fault for not going in sooner with my irregular every 15 minutes bathroom break, but I am getting tired of going in to get checked and they only want to check for bladder infection which always turn out negative and getting the answer I am not looking for… Now it seems to be getting worse for me and when I google my common problems the symtoms come up as diabetes which wouldnt shock me if I do have it (my testing will be on Friday) as I have it on both sides of the family. What would throw me off is that I am active so this is what confuses me is I thought the more exercise you do the less you would have to worry about diabetes!?!
I thought that even though I am not sure if I do for sure have diabetes that it would be nice to know more about it since it runs on both sides of my family.
