Diabetes, can come to you specially if you already have a family history that predisposes you to it. A sedentary life with a poor diet, or being overweight can contribute to acquiring Type II Diabetes. Main symptoms include excess thirst, hunger and incresaed frequency of urination. Other symptoms can include blurry vision, numbness. Keep looking out for these symptoms, and report to doctor if yu have any of them to start early treatment and thus prevent complications.

I get a headache every time I eat fruit . Could I be diabetic? This is a fairly new thing. I have struggled with headaches my whole life but never been able to figure out what they are connected to. A website made me think I could be hypoglycemic because I also struggle with depression, insomnia, and low energy. But all this could also be related to stress. How can I find out? Is there a blood test?
