you are diabetic or not that can be only find out from the blood glucose levels, get it checked dude and if it is elevated than you are diabetic.

General & Family Physician Dr. JItendra Sharma's  Response
Your pins and needles can be due to vitamin B12 deficiency. Although it is very common in diabetes. But not enough to conclude that you have diabetes.

You need to get your blood sugar (fasting blood sugar) done.

For over a week now I have been extremely thirsty all the time and have been drinking to try and combat this and so urinate more. Yesterday I had stomach cramps which were soon sorted by eating having only toast for breakfast and today having the cramps again, at a later time after having porridge and felt very weak and was shaking whilst making something to eat. I also woke up very tired this morning even though I had over 9 hours sleep and fell asleep at 1pm and waking up at 4pm. However I don't seem to urinate too much at night. My Mum also has an under active Thyroid and I am worried this could be Diabetes but am also worried I am jumping to the wrong conclusion and it is a virus and stress mixed together.

yesterday at work I was very sleepy and thirsty constantly, when I got home I noticed my ankles and legs were swollen, my right leg was more swollen then my left. I rested and then fell asleep for about three hours then I woke up and ate a bologna sand which and right away I got a severe pain in my stomach it was so intense I fell to the floor then a few seconds later I urinated on myself without warning as if I was briefly paralyzed or something. I got up and when to the bathroom an I had diarrhea and my diarrhea was black. about a month ago my doctor told e I have insulin resistance and also that I have endometriosis again and he might have to do an ablation of my uterus. Am I having symptoms of diabetes and/or complications of endometriosis or both endometriosis and diabetes. I am very worried and I have no insurance. Thank you!

Can I be hyperglycemic and not be diabetic? I am a nursing mother who has been losing weight (due to nursing). Recently, I have seemed to have excessive urination (some very, very clear) and seem to be more thirsty than usual. My mind seems foggy and I am irritable and weak. Leg muscles are lethargic. Sometimes I experience a heavy chest and heart palpitations. My lifestyle is high stress due to homeschooling my 6 kids and I am a carb. eater. There is conflicting info based on type 2 diabetes in thin people who consume carbs. Other than getting my blood sugar tests next week. What can/should I eat to feel better sooner. Should I stay away from all sugar and carbs or do I need to eat them when I am shaky and weak?

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.
