Wondering if I could be diabetic.

I'm a 22 year old female, 5'3, and around 167 lbs. For the past couple weeks, I've been having to urinate about every twenty minutes during the day, and about ten at night, and have had a tingling feeling in my hands and feet quite a bit as well as a slight numbness in my fingers. I did have a bladder infection about three weeks ago, but I already finished antibiotics for it, and have been confused about my continued frequent urination. I haven't really had any other signs that I'm aware of, but my diet has consisted of little to no fruits or vegetables, and mostly fatty foods since I was a child, and diabetes does run in my family. Would this warrant for getting tested for diabetes, or am I just over thinking things like a hope?

While it could be a return of the infection, I would definitely get checked for diabetes. It can't hurt and you could be right as there is a family history.

Re: Wondering if I could be diabetic.

Sounds like your blood sugar is elevated. You have the same symptoms I experienced several months ago, and my blood work shows that I am prediabetes. I have changed my diet and am now keeping it down around 105. You need to get checked right away. Diabetes causes alot of bad things to happen to your body.
