I recently did talk to a doctor about my symptoms who thought I could have diabetes. They tested my blood sugar that day and it came back normal. So they told me I'm just sensitive. These are the symptoms:

Irritability when hungry
Cold hands
Low blood pressure (usually about 90/70 but been as low as 70/60)
Extreme Tiredness

Those are the main ones I discussed with my doctor. I don't know what tests to ask for, or even the proper way they should have done the blood sugar test or really much about how to find out if I do have diabetes. If anyone can tell me anything, it would help soo much!!

  • Testing your blood sugar that day did not rule out diabetes, all it did was say that at the moment your blood sugar level was ok. I believe the real test for diabetes is done after fasting, though I''m not sure, maybe someone else can answer that?...

  • Blood sugar should be testet early in the morning,another test is oral glucose tolerance test.The symptoms are not "clasic" for diabetes type 2 ,more likely indicate a impairment of glucose tolerance
