Would regular blood work uncover diabetes?

Hi there,
I've recently been having multiple diabetes symptoms, blurry vision, foot pain, toe numbness, frequent urination etc.

I had a physical about two weeks ago and my glucose levels were normal. Should I still worry?

If your glucose levels are normal and your doctor knows about the symptoms you've been having, then I wouldn't worry. It's possible that something other than diabetes is causing your symptoms. When my husband got diagnosed with diabetes he was constantly thirsty and lost a lot of weight in a short period of time. So if you experience those symptoms you may want to contact your doctor.

Thanks MrsPM.
I'm a little worried that I might have MS, as it's been in my family. So I still want to get these symptoms checked out.
