…nice posting….see a qualified person for advice…many people on here will make fun of you….troll….
Are you talking type 1 or type 2 diabetes? Why don't you visit a doctor and get the best advice you can about how to avoid it? Or there are really good sites on diabetes, rather than here. I can tell you - healthy eating (which you are doing), a bit of regular exercise - it doesn't have to be extreme - and also keep moving during the day. Don't sit like a blob for hours every day. These are three really important things for your health in regards to diabetes.
One of the first signs is extreme thirst that won't quench. If you get that, go to a doctor.
You don't have to drink when you aren't thirsty. But you sound like a really healthy young lady. And if you ever did get diabetes, you have the self discipline to live well. My mother-in-law is 90, has had diabetes, and is very healthy and active. My son is 20 and got diabetes at 14. He manages it really well and you wouldn't know he had it.
The simple answer is to see your doctor and ask him. He can take a blood test and check something called an "A1C" level. It's the best way. You could monitor your own blood sugar levels. Your mom or someone in your family probably has a test kit laying around. Check your levels when you get up before you eat breakfast and again before lunch and again before supper. Keep track of your numbers. In my case, my doctor doesn't worry about it if they stay under 190, but thats for me. I'm a large male kind of guy. Safe levels would be different for you due to age, weight, activity level, and a whole lot of other variables. Again, the best way is to go to your doctor and ask him to test you.
I am type one diabetic, 43 (almost) years of age, and I am fit, healthy, and could literally run rings around younger, non diabetics lol. I eat properly now, and I get regular exercise and I check my sugar levels daily. That's pretty much all you have to do to look after yourself! Same as anyone else really, apart from the sugar testing lol. Your grandpa CHOOSES to live that way, he chooses to not look after his health and it his own fault his diabetes is so messed up.
It is impossible to know from those details if you are diabetic or if you will become diabetic. You need to go to a qualified professional. To be honest I didn't read all of it, sorry hehe. But if you are diabetic now or in the future, that is not a death sentence, it is a reminder to look after yourself better
why are you embarrassed?? And lol, trust me, NOT finding out is a whole lot worse than if you DO find out! I'm talking coma's, pain, long term health problems.
I'm not saying I have always sailed happily through being diabetic, god if I could choose, then of course I would choose to not have it, but its the hand I have been dealt, and it has taken me a long time to really accept it. I went through the whole ''if I ignore it I can be normal'' crap, but of course, that just made me ill and feel like rubbish!
There are a whole lot worse things in this world than diabetes, and it is totally controllable with a bit of effort and care.
Get to the doctor, get some education in these things, and accept that you might have to work a bit harder to look after yourself. Trust me, thats a WHOLE lot easier and better than the alternative!
and sorry, what one symptom do you mean?
if you are diabetic, or pre diabetic, it won't make any difference getting a bit healthier first, it won't change anything at all, unless you are talking about type two diabetes!
And lol, I'm too lazy to read through it all, its ok.
Go to your doctor and he will tell you... <br />
Good luck young lady...
