Dear GemieThe possible cause can be the Diabetes. Your friends Physician can find out what is the problem, but you can on your own find out if your friend has Diabetes. You can bye a chip Glucometer and measure Your fiends BG in Postabsorptiv stage i.e. fasting blood sugar on the morning. If the Glucometer measure a value of BG > 7 mmol/liter on two different days, ten your friend shod make consultation with her physician. The Physician will make many different blood test and he or she will come with a correct diagnosis for your friend.Sincerely YoursDon
