Hi... The symptoms are in the favor of diabetes.. The other causes of increased frequency of urination being infection.. I will be better to get the tests done to find the exact cause both a blood and urine tests..

Lately I have been very fatigued and weak to the point that I can not keep up with my daily activities. I also have some shakiness, pains in my feet and legs, also tingling. I also have urgency urination,more so than frequent. I just feel out of it all the time now as if I have a hard time concentrating and wake up feeling tired as also going to bed exhausted. I want to thnk everyone for their input and concerns. I did see the Doctor yesterday and I had blood work done for numerous things including Diabetes , no results yet. I was at a friends house after work tonight and he took my sugar level and it was 100, this was without eating since last night.Still waiting on the Doctors results of tests done.

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...

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
