Am I getting type 1 diabetes

I'm thirsty alot, need the toilet alot, like i'll go to the toilet and then when i leave me house i feel like i need it again. i can never sleep at night then always tired in the day sometimes. i strruggle to lose weight especially around my stomach. i sometimes feel dizzy when i havent eaten like my sugar level has dropped.
i'm just worried because it runs in the family ( my dad has it) but i dont know if it comes sudden or you gradually get it? what could be wrong with me?

Re: Am I getting type 1 diabetes

What you SHOULD do is make an apt for a good complete physical.

Make a reasonable list of your concerns etc, to take with you to your apt.

Re: Am I getting type 1 diabetes

I agree with Gomer. It could be diabetes and it could be either T1 or T2. You need to see a doc to know for sure. Don't wait as you don't want to do damage with uncontrolled high blood sugars.
