Do I have signs of early diabetes and what do I do ?

Do I have signs of early diabetes and what do I do? I just had a salad and ahi tuna salad for lunch along with a glass of ice water and now I am so drowsy. It seems that every day after lunch I am so tired and I eat healthy. Is this a sign of early diabetes?

Early diabetes can be checked by doing sugar levels. If you include more of carbohydatres in diet and then feel drowsy/dizzy after eatng then the insulin secretion pattern may be a issue to be looked at. Talk to your doctor about this.

My Dad (82) was in hospital for 8 days last week, could not keep food down and vomiting - this was post 6 weeks of antibiotics for cellulitis (after a bad fall when he was infected). Very weak and dehydrated. Post ibntravenous feeding etc he is now eating well, staying awake more, but every time he urinates, his passes watery stool. Also have haemorrhoids that now seem to be inflamed. They gave him medicine to stimulate his appetite as to eat better and gain strength He has only been recently (5 months ago) been diagnosed with early Diabetes (1), but also last week changed the diabetes medication. What can cause this passing stool continously? Thanking you in Anticipation Regards DeVilliers

Often lately, I've been rather light-headed and drained of energy after eating lunch (when I mostly notice it) right about 1 - 2 hours after eating. I'm currently overweight and concerned about blood sugar levels, and diabetes but, that all checked out okay on my last fasting lab 3 months ago. What could be the cause??

I am 50 years old and about to be taken off of my birth control pill that Iv'e been taking for desmynorhea. I am also type 1 diabetic and have managed it well. It works well with the ortha Novum 1/1/1 28 day birth control pill. My doctor wants to take me off because I'm 50. I do not want to because it works so well and has for many years. If I'm taken off I know my hormone levels will crash and my diabetes management will suffer. (Doctors tell me they are not related but I know They are related because I've lived it and learned to make the adjustments during my cycle for 35 years). If I'm taken off the BC pill, what is my best option to treat desmynorrhea and to keep the hormone levels at a healthy and balanced level at my age?
