: hi, i'm a 15 year old girl and recently have been wondering if i have diabetes. My mother told me last night that she has always faintly wondered if i did since i was 12. I have looked on the internet for the symptoms and have some. I have the frequent urination, I seem to have to go more than my friends. And being thirsty alot. I have had blurry vision, but only like a couple times and nothing severe or long lasting. I would just like to know some other symptoms and what everyone thinks. And one more thing, I've always thought that craving sugar was a sign of diabetes, but it wasn't on any of the symptoms lists I found on the net. I thought that was the main ones. Please let me know. Thanks.
HEY, IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE DIABETES, BUT I'M NO DOCTOR TO JUDGE WHETHER YOU DO OR NOT. I JUST GOT DIAGNOSED WITH DIABETES ON MONDAY AND THE ONLY SYMPTOMS I HAD WAS WAKING UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT TO GET SOMETHING TO DRINK. I HAD NO OTHER SYMPTOMS SO THAT WAS KINDA WEIRD AND MY MOM CHECKED MY BLOOD SUGAR ONE DAY AND IT WAS REALLY HIGH SO SHE CALLED MY DOCTOR AND SHE BROUGHT ME IN AND COME TO FIND OUT, I HAVE DIABETES. IT'S NOT THE BEST OF NEWS THAT YOU WANNA HEAR, BUT IT COULD BE WORSE. YOU JUST GOTTA MAKE THE BEST OF IT. THAT'S WHAT I LEARNED THE PAST 5 DAYS. SO I THINK YOU SHOULD GO TO A DOCTOR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I HOPE EVERYTHING TURNS OUT ALRIGHT. IF YOU DO GET DIAGNOSED, JUST REMEMBER, IT COULD BE WORSE. GOOD LUCK!
