could I have diabetes?

I have a history of diabetes in my family (grandmother and auntie), recently I have been very tired/weak, getting blurred vission and drinking alot. I also get alot of cramps and spasms in my muscles.. could this be a sign that I have diabetes? I just wanted to know any opinions, although I do have a doctors appointment booked

Thanks.

Re: could I have diabetes?

The only way to know for sure is to get blood work done. Some folks have no symptoms at all, and some have a few of the ones you describe. If you want a heads up, see if you know someone with a blood glucose meter and have them test you (either fasting or 2 hours after a meal). You should be below 100 fasting and less than 140 at the 2 hour mark.

Sorry I can't be more help. Best of luck at the docs.
