could cinnamon have altered my test results?!

i've been feeling very very tired lately, very lazy, uncomfortable, along with frequent urination that started a year ago as far as i can remember, i have a dry mouth so i feel thirsty and drink a lot, but no hunger and no weight loss, i also have been having dry orgasms lately and i read it could be retrograde ejaculation which is a complication of diabetes!!! i also had sort of random blurred visions that will return to normal again in two or three days, i also have shin spots i can upload pics to confirm, i'm suspecting that i'm diabetic but the fasting blood glucose test came negative!

i'm worried though that i took a full teaspoon of cinnamon the day before, i'm already feeling slightly better on taking a teaspoon of cinnamon with every meal, but i'm worried that that might have altered my test results!!!

Hi, no i don't think the Cinnamon will have altered your results, what you need is an HBA1C test, that gives you your blood sugar average over 120days and is the best indication of weather you have diabetes or not.

also a C-peptide test will show if you have any issue producing your own insulin.

Ask your doctor to request these blood tests asap.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You need to be investigated.
I would suggest you fasting blood sugar and urine osmolality.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
