Default Diabetes ~ Signs & Symtoms

Hi there. I was told not long after my youngest child was born that if I did not lose some weight by the time I was 40 that I would be a full blown diabetic! I had gestational diabetes while I was pregnant the last time.

Anyway, I am really starting to wonder if that could be what is wrong with me?! I have no energy what so ever! My arms are sore... can barely type without them feeling like they can't do it anymore. My legs get the same way. I can sleep through the night and get plenty of sleep... but yet I have to sleep a lot during the day too! There are just so many things... I could be here all day.

I have not used real sugar in a few years! I use splenda. I eat much healthier then I use too! And yes, I do eat several small meals/snacks through out the day.

I was just wondering if these could be signs of diebetes? What are the signs and symtoms? How do you get tested?

Some of the signs of diabetes are frequent urination, fatigue and weightloss. You should see your doctor and express your concerns about your symptoms. If he/she suspects diabetes you will be probably be given a hemoglobin A1c test which measures blood sugar over a period of months. Good luck and I hope you feel better.

You maybe should also get tested for Fibromyalgia. Sounds like some of the symptoms for that as well. Actually, a good check up would seem in order.

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not.
