Have frequent urination and itching. Diagnosed with possible diabetes. Suggestions?

I am 45, very fit, work out every day. I eat a VERY clean diet, no refined sugar and tons of fruits and veggies. I eat avocados and nuts daily, I roast veggies once a week and snack on those. I juice every day and work out 90 minutes a day, 5-6 days a week. I eat fish 3x a week for dinner, eggs , lean protein , greek yoagart, flax and take an array of vitamins . I am a recovering alcoholic and have been sober 7 months. Under a lot of stress, but started managing with my exercise and meditation . Started peeing an extreme amount about 2 weeks ago and began itching. A burning prickly internal type itch. Not on hands and feet per se, and no edema . Saw doc today and had blood and urine tests. She is testing thyroid, liver enzymes, kidneys and a test for diabetes. I almost hit the floor when she said I was displaying signs of possible diabetes. Could be from stress, damaged pancreas , kidneys...very nervous. What do you think of symptoms. By the way my blood pressure is 110/70 and I have very low body fat. Thank you-Cindy

I understand you have a very healthy lifestyle and Your symptoms can be due to increased blood sugars and your doctor has diagnosed diabetes. Nothing to be worried as diabetes treatment has improved very well and is easily treatable.

There could be so many reasons why you had developed diabetes at this age even with a clean diet pattern. I feel you would require further testing like HBA1c, to find out the intensity hyperglycemia and cause of diabetes. whatever may be the reason you should definitely do well with treatment.
