Hyperglycemia & Genetics

What does hyperglycemia feel like? Not looking for text book symptoms. What do YOU feel like?

Also does anyone know:

If a family member with diabetes are you are risk for the type they have or can you get either type?

Re: Hyperglycemia & Genetics

Most people have absolutely no symptoms. Many have found out through a blood test yet never suspected anything. Usually if someone is thirsty a lot and going to the bathroom quite frequently they will suspect and others may be feel very lethargic after a big meal, especially a high carb meal.

If parents have it there is a 50/50 chance of the child getting it, whether it be type 1 or 2. Obviously if the parents have it the child is at a bigger risk, but it's not definate they will. Only your Dr. can tell you for sure as even those symptoms can be something entirely different.

Enjoy your day...JJ...
