Both my father and my grandfather have diabetes (the grandfather is on my mothers side and has type 1 my father has type 2) and within the last year or maybe more I have started peeing VERY frequently and get numbness/weird sensations in my feet (like when I am taking a shower the water that feels good on the rest of my body feels like a totally different temperature on my feet) I looked at these symptoms and thought for sure I had diabetes I got tested (I think it was a urine sample it was a 4 or 5 months ago) and they said I didnt have it (Im 19 and not overweight so I know I dont have type 2) but I cant help but think they are wrong because this peeing and numbness symptoms came on very suddenly. Any ideas? am I just paranoid?
