I am a 25-year old female, and from my family history, my maternal grandfather suffered from severe diabetes. This past month, my work schedule changed and has disrupted my routine to the extent that I only have about 2 meals (of mostly carbs) and five hours of sleep a day. Just earlier this week, I noticed I was constantly thirsty - no matter how much water I drink, the back of my throat always dry. I also urinate a lot more frequently (perhaps due to the excessive intake of water), and am always tired. Could this lifestyle be a sign of diabetes at somebody my age? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
