can anyone help?
the problems have only started in the last 6 months. Certain foods make me sick. They tend to be very sugary things (e.g. cakes, lucozade etc). It tends to happen only after eating a certain amount of sugar (although this isnt a lot! i.e. a few mouthfuls of something sweet.) If i cut sugar out I become very irratable, tired, weak (sometimes sweat) and hands start to shake. I also get regular headaches, thrush and constantly have cold hands and feet. Does anyone know if this could be diabetes related? i have had 2 diabetes ****k tests, which showed i had normal blood sugar. However I have heard that these arent accurate measures. Is this true?
Anything information about what to do would be helpful. thanks!

  • those do sound like some syptoms of diabetes. The symptoms of Type I diabetes often come on suddenly and very severely. They include: being exceptionally thirsty dry mouth the need to urinate often weight loss (even though you may be hungry and eating well) feeling weak and tired blurry vision. Sometimes, people with Type II diabetes don't notice any symptoms or the symptoms are experienced gradually. They include: blurry vision cuts or sores that are slow to heal itchy skin, yeast infections increased thirst dry mouth need to urinate often leg pain. i had some of ur symptoms and i got diagnosed as a type 1 diabetic just yesterday.(im a 13yr old boy.) may b u should go to another clinic and get another glucose test or somthing. was this info helpful? hope it was. if u wanna know more about diabetes u can check out more info on internet. if u google diabetes symptoms im sure you'll get plenty of info.hope this was helpful, bye.

  • Hi the unregistered person was me! I have checked the diabetes symptoms and although I do have some of the symptoms, I am never particulary thirsty, which i thouht was a main symptom. Also i have never heard of people being sick after eating sugar...im lost!:( I have had tests at different places and both were normal.. do you know why people have glucos intolerance tests rather than ****k tests? do they show the same thing?? My symptoms also include the blurred vision sometimes, very tired, constantly run down (I seem to have a very poor immune system!) and have a lot of mouth ulcers! anything else it could be...? please let me no as im getting sick (quite literally!!) of this!!!!

  • I have been recently diagnosed (2-6-08). Only discovered so by insisting on blood test at emergency room for wound that looked odd. Had no usual symptoms, only often leg cramps at night, headaches, and that wound. Also, I noticed my face would get red after eating lunch. I tested at 288, with a 3-month average of 284. Turns out the wound had a HUGE yeast growth (of course, I had been prescribed antibiotics which help the little yeasties). So, we don't always have those symptoms. I had felt something was wrong for the past year, just could not pinpoint what until that test. If you think something is wrong, you might be right. If I had not insisted on that test, no telling when I would have been diagnosed. Now, by sugars (with metformin) are running well within range, have lost 14 pounds, and am feeling like my old self again.

Hallo Mel 069You ask:” do you know why people have glucose intolerance tests rather than ****k tests?”Yes I know.There are to methods for Glucose Intolerance Test (GIT) (Glucose Loud test (GLT)).1. GIT- Intravenous. This test is used by the patients who have Gastro-Intestinal problems, i.e. by malabsorption or after VentrikelResection.2. GIT- Peroral. This test is more complicated. This test is not necessary if you have a correct diagnose for Diabetes Mellitus (DM). The DM-Diagnose is correct if you have on the to different days Your BG (Blood Glucose) in Post Absorptive Condition (PAC) in Your blood >6.1 mmol/l or in Your blood plasma/serum >7 mmol/l. If you have a BG in PAC between 6.1 and 7 mmol/l (Plasma/Serum) it can be necessary to use GTI-Test to give You a correct diagnose. GTI can also be used if you have Glucosuri in Your first morning urine but normal BG. The American Diabetes Association recommended use of peroral GTI only for pregnant women in relations for GESTATION DIABETES.This is my very short explanation for your question.Have a nice day and go to your physician and ask him for more detailed explanation about the problem.Sincerely YoursDon
