I come up with I may hold diabetes?
My genes are more dominant on my father's side, and diabetes runs through his family, but it skipped a generation. I have be having some signs, and some other weird things. For example, I have be a lot thirstier then usual, I have be feeling really tired after doing any exercise, and I can't be bothered to do any work any more (if that affects anything). Also, when you drink a lot, isn't your urine supposed to be white? Because my urine is yellow, which I contemplate is strange. Also, I have been getting diarrhea. Should I be worried, or am I just over react?
Many of the signs of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are similar. In both, there is too much glucose in the blood and not satisfactory in the cells of your body. High glucose levels within Type I are due to a lack of insulin because the insulin producing cells have be destroyed. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body's cells become resistant to insulin that is person produced. Either way, your cells aren't getting the glucose that they need, and your body let you know
Frequent trips to the bathroom:
Urination becomes more frequent when there is too much glucose in the blood. If insulin is nonexistent or ineffective, the kidneys can't filter glucose subsidise to the blood. They become overwhelmed and try to draw extra water out of the blood to dilute the glucose. This keeps your bladder full and it keeps you running to the bathroom.
If your body is pulling extra hose down out of your blood and you're running to the bathroom more, you will become dehydrated and feel the need to drink more to replace the dampen that you are losing
Other S/S are:
Losing Weight Without Trying, Weakness and Fatigue, Tingling or Numbness in Your Hands, Legs or Feet, Blurred vision, skin that is dry or itchy, frequent infections or cuts and bruises that steal a long time to heal
If you have these you need to goto your doctor to grasp tested, they will either order a fasting blood sugar (FBS) interview, or an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) to help determine whether you have diabetes.
FBS is a fast test, meaning that you can't eat for 8 to 10 hours back you have your blood drawn. Most people like to shift for the test first thing in the morning after fast all night. A fasting blood glucose of 70 mg/dl to 99 mg/dl is middle-of-the-road.
Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)
The OGTT is a glucose challenge test. A fasting blood glucose is usually taken first to establish a baseline smooth. Then you are given a drink that contains 75 grams of glucose (sugar). Two hours later another blood sample is drawn to check your glucose level. If your blood glucose is underneath 140 mg/dl, then your glucose tolerance is considered normal. Source(s): DOD CCLS/ EMT
Nah that doesn't sound too discouraging.
Your urine is yellow because you are dehydrated and/or you've been drinking something save for water. If you start drinking nothing but water you'll see it clear up. So that's conventional.
If anyone starts telling you that you are slurring your speech (as if you were intoxicated) and things like that later you should probably get checked out for diabetes.
It never hurts to know. Make an appointment with your doc and get your blood sugar tested.
i first knew by little signs and being alot thirstier too, it sounds resembling it but you should go to a doctor
Go to the doctor and get a blood test, if you do, indeed, own diabetes, it needs to be diagnosed so you can start treating it ASAP.
