In February I went to a practice nurse because I had been experiencing symptoms of diabetes. She did a finger ****k test there and then, which came back at around 4 if I remember rightly. It was obviously non-fasting.
A couple of weeks after I went for blood tests, which again were non-fasting. They came back clear. I got myself a self-testing meter though and checked an hour after Lucozade, and it read 14.9. I showed this to the doctor, and he basically told me it was completeley normal for it to be that high. I don't feel normal though that's the problem.
-I get dizzy and shaky after drinks like Lucozade, as well as tired (I don't even have an energy rush beforehand, so it isn't like it's me "crashing")
-When I don't drink or eat anything sugary for about 3 hours I get moody
-I get thirst which won't go away. I just drank two glasses of water and I'm still thirsty
-My periods are all over the place. not sure if it's related but still.
-My weight is dropping. I was 7 stone (I'm naturally slim) but over the past few months I've dropped to 6 stone.
-I can't sleep. If I do sleep I wake up after a few hours
-Then there is the urination and everything else which are the symptoms of diabetes.
It's drivign me mad. I'm wondering if I am really thinking too much of everything or if there is something going on.
