Hello, I was wondering if anyone had any advice. My mum is a little concerned I might be a little pre-diabetic.
I have noticed that I have been drinking A LOT more than I normally do lately. I keep needing to go to the bathroom (all that water right?), and have had some interesting headaches (which I don't normally get). I am always hungry, but that could be me growing, but always feel tired. I have needed to amp up the caffeine to stay awake for school.
I do sometimes have a problem with low blood sugar if I a am exercising and/or if I skip a meal or eat it later than normal. I went to the doctor to have a blood test at 8 am after not eating breakfast. This was a while ago and it came back with normal blood sugar. Though I do often feel very spacey, it comes and goes.
Is there anyway you can tell without going to the doctor? I have had the same doctor for a very long time and always feel like I am a pest whenever I go in. (I also was very sick when I was little, so I don't like going in very much anyway.) I would also feel bad if I was over reacting about this and I was perfectly healthy and wasting her time.
Opinions would be great! Thank you so very much!
