more thirst,more hunger and more urgency for urination. These are specific symptoms for Diabetes but that does not mean all person with these have the diabetes you check with your DOctor for blood work, the blood sugar is more specific I suppose.

I know excessive urination is a sign of diabetes, but what does excessive mean, exactly? Does it mean every 15 minutes? Or does it mean every 4 hours? It seems as though no one, not even any diabetics on this site can explain that to me. Being the biggest hypochondriac in the world, I find myself having the urge to pee every 2-3 hours... yet, when I do not think about peeing, I go about every 4-6 hours. Do I have a problem? Can someone please give me a little information about this issue? This is the only diabetes symptoms that I have, and I know what all of them are. Thanks, guys!
