how to know you have diabetes?

Diabetes most of the time goes undiagnosed because of its seemingly harmless symptoms. Sometimes there are no symptoms at all. But the early detection of diabetes symptoms and treatment can decrease the chances of developing the complications of diabetes. Basically, there are three major types of diabetes.

1) Type 1 diabetes
2) Type 2 diabetes
3) Gestational diabetes

Each type of diabetes has its own kind of signs and symptoms. Here are some general or most common sign and symptoms of diabetes:

a) Frequent urination
b) Excessive thirst
c) Irritability
d) Blurred vision
e) Extreme unexplained fatigue
f) Weight loss

g) Increased hunger
h) Frequent skin, bladder or gum infections
i) Irritability
j) Tingling or numbness in hands or feet
k) Slow healing of wounds

The symptoms of type 1 diabetes, symptoms of type 2 diabetes and symptoms of gestational diabetes are not poles apart from one another. There exists some sort of similarity among all of them. Therefore, keep a check!

it really does... its actually very similar to these crazy emails i get. some are rather entertaining like how to be the king of all holes or some that have multiple paragraphs of random words haphazardly organinzed making some crazy reads

seems like these are popping up every day for various things.

As for the diabetes that is a start but you won't know unless you get some blood work done with your doc.

I think the main test for diabetes is a blood sugar test after a 12 hour fast. ??

yup, usually they'll just tell you to eat a regular dinner, go to bed and come back in the morning before you eat. If your glucose levels are too high it might be a bad thing.
