Is severe abdominal pain symptom of diabetes?

Hi, may I answer your heI am a girl and I'm 17. My father, aunt, and uncle all had Diabetes. I do not know what type my aunt and uncle had but I know my father had type two. My uncle died from his diabetes, my aunt died of heart failure due to her weight if I remember correctly and my father died recently this past year but my family and I are not sure what from-the funeral home wouldnt tell us anything past natural causes but we believe he had another stroke. My father was 51, and my aunt and uncle were in their 40s. I have never had to wear glasses before this year. I have been diagnosed with astigmatism but I don't know what caused it. I have been getting sick more easily this year. Just these past few weeks I have been sick with so much stuff I cant even remember. Last week I threw up for a few days from what seemed like food poisoning and I was nauseous for the rest of the weekend and this past week I have been having random bouts of subtle abdominal pain. This summer I had a random bout of excrutiating abdominal pain. I dont know why. I did not have to use the bathroom, I had not eaten anything, I was not on my period, and I had not been in a fight or anything yet I could not even move without crying out in pain. I would just be lying still and it would feel as if someone was slowly twisting a dozen knives in my gut. After about 2-3 days it went away and has not happened again. Could any of this put me at risk for having diabetes at all?alth queries right now ? Please type your query here...

Thank you for the question. To remove doubts and also for family history of diabetes, get blood sugar tested.It is unlikely that abdominal pain has anything to do with diabetes.It could have been just spastic bowels due to food irritant (most Likely), however keep a watch ,if it recurs show to a doctor. This certainly is not going to put you to any risk of diabetes.be relaxed and and do not over analyze or link to family history, often things do not pass on to children or progeny or to all children of same origin parents.
