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.

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

My father s pancreas has shut down, and he was told that especially with his diabetes, that his kidneys are soon to follow. I was looking online the other day and found some sort of implant that can be put in now, that has helped 50% of those who tried it, from developing full kidney failure, but now I can not find the name of the implant so that we can talk to his doctor about it. Can anyone tell me the name of this? It was like 3 or 4 letters long...
