I'm worried about symptoms?!

Question: I'm worried about symptoms!?
Hi recently i have not been well with the following sympotoms;
-being irrabtlible
-urinating up to 7 times during the day

I have also got bad circulation with pins and needles and cold hands and feet!.
I was talking to my friend who mentioned diabetes and i am worried but i am not sure what do you think!?
My thirst is not always excessive!.
thank you xxxxWww@Answer-Health@Com

I am not a doctor, I am a victim of the condition!. What I am offering is things learned over the years I have been a diabetic!.

There is a simple blood test called an A1C test!. It gives you a 90 day average for your glucose and is a definitive test for diabetes!. There is also a glucose tolerance test that is definative but it is more complex and not necessary!. As a matter of fact, I could use my home tester and with three or four test I could probably give you a very good idea of whether or not you have diabetes!. If you don't have insurance but know a diabetic you might ask them to check your blood for you!.

It is better to be tested and find you are healthy than to continue with untreated diabetes!. My Type 2 diabetes went undiagnosed for at least 5 years!. The high sugar and poor circulation has all but ruined my feet, legs and hands!. My feet are so numb I can hardly close my eyes while standing!. My body has adjusted to the lack of feedback from my feet and now controls my balance with visual cues!. You don't want what I have!. Believe me when I say it is no fun!. My first glucose test was about 565!. It should be no higher than 180 if the test is conducted two hours after eating!. That is the time when your sugar peaks!.

Oh boy, I am just rambling now!. Just get tested; if you are fine then diabetes is not the problem and if you aren't then treatment will be started sooner rather than later!.

Good luck!. If there is anything else I can tell you, please ask!. I do accept email at my profile!. Diabetes is serious and I treat it as such!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Go see your practitioner!. Keep in mind though, a fasting blood sugar may be normal for some time in someone who has diabetes!. do not just settle for a fasting blood sugar!. A glucose tolerance test is the gold standard for testing, however, random high BS with symptoms can also diagnose DM!. Stop wondering and see you health care provider!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

huney don worry the increse in urination is due to increased water intake n the increase in thirst is due to excess water loss in your case but still to have confirmation better check ur blood glucose levels and have a physicians opinion!.

have a nice timeWww@Answer-Health@Com

I REALLY need to use the bathroom and drink water right now!. lol
Go get yourself tested by a physician or bring home a test from a pharmacy!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I would say you have diabetes!. And have had it for quite a long time!. The pins and needles probably are peripheral neurophathy!.If I'm right , you need to get on the stick and control your blood sugar!. I also asume you are over weight!. So starting now , eating white is out: NO white bread, no flour, no white sugar!.
