So this diagnosis is not for me, but rather a friend who is refusing to go to the doctor and get medical attention. At 18 years of age, and over 300 pounds, he urinates almost every thirty to forty five minutes. His diet includes high sodium, glucose and fat levels including tons of fast and other junk food. He drinks a lot of soda, and other sugary foods.

This constant urinating has only started over the last few months, and I suspected it might be the early stages of Type II diabetes. If he isn't going to see a physician, is there a way I can tell if it may be diabetes? Urine dipstick to test for glucose?

Thanks,
JD
