Hi all !!!! Sometimes I wake up in the morningand crave sugar so bad so ill eat a piece of candy, then I need more!!! Imean I literally need it, thatll last for like a week, then the next week ill be so tired I can sleep all night and all day.. With no problem. I dont know whats wrong with me . But diabetes is like a hit and miss in my family. I dont have health insurance so its hard to go to the doctor unless I really have to! Im only 20 years old. I get dizzy spells like I could black out.I was just hoping someone could share their advice with me, like how they figured out they had diabetes or the symptoms they had????? Anything at all is appreciated. Thanks a bunch!!!!
Hi, I am a diabetic and my symptoms were weight loss, dry skin, major thirstiness, using the bathroom alot, and no energy. Other symptoms are loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, etc. Since you said that people in your family have diabetes but you have no insurance to see the doctor, a good idea is to use one of your relatives' bloodsugar machines and ask them to check your blodsugar. If it's high, see the doctor immediately. Hope that helps
The only way you are going to know if you have diabetes or not is to go to the doctor for a blood test, or, as the previous poster said, borrow someones glucose monitor and test your sugar, anything over 120 fasting should be checked out.
