Re: diabetes

I believe there are some pretty common symptoms, but the real stand out way to know is you pee a lot which causes you to drink a lot, and after eating a meal with sugar and/or carbs, you get incredibly tired. this is all due to insulin not being able to break down sugars in your blood stream so your body pees them out. at least, i think thats the case.

the only way to tell for sure is to check your blood sugar levels before and a few times after eating so you can monitor your blood sugar levels for irregularities.

Re: diabetes

well, a piss test will tell you too. A diabetic will almost always have easily detectable amounts of sugar in their urine. Bodies aren't built to piss out energy, so that's how you know there's a problem for sure.

Re: diabetes

Best way to know if you have type II = are you overweight? If so, then probably

When I weighed 320lbs my doc told me I was borderline diabetic. "Insulin resistance" is what he called it. He said I needed to lose weight or I would have full blown type II within a year.

I lost 100lbs and it went away

Re: diabetes

I was diagnosed with type I Diabetes at the age of 4. My parents noticed the usual symptoms such as intense thirst, frequent urination, very yellow urine, etc. What I noticed was nausea and for some reason my feet felt like they were hotter than hell. Exhaustion is also another sign. Go to a Wal-greens or CVS and pick up some ketone strips, they're pretty cheap. If you are passing anything more than a normal ketone level go straight to the hospital. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. My sister lost her life because of diabetes, it's no joke.

I can see how that is important. I forget working in Vegas that not everyone has decent insurance. I work for one of the major hotels and my insurance is pretty nice and covers most everything.

Re: diabetes

Do you have violent mood swings when you get a little hungry? I had a friend who was the nicest girl in the world most of the time, but if she got slightly hungry she was the biggest ***** you could imagine. One summer she passed out from her insulin going nuts and found out she had Type I. Ever since she gained control of her insulin, she was always really nice.

It may not have been the hunger, she may have had low blood suger. That would explain why she was hungry, her blood sugar was low. I know that if my blood sugar drops suddenly and I haven't realized it yet I am a total dick. I actually had an issue at work where my blood sugar dropped and I basically told a customer to go **** himself and HR got involved. I barely kept my job, luckily the customer was a dick to my boss too. Low blood sugar causes your body to seek alternative sources of sugars or nutrients and it starts by converting brain cells among other things. Makes you a little crazy.
