i'm a female in her teens, and few years ago, three to be exact, i was tested to have a high sugar level.
since then i gained 20lbs. and recently i've been getting weird symptoms, such as:
- fatigue
- altering appetite: somedays i can go without barely any food, and
somedays i will have crazy sugar crave
- cloudy urine with small but thick looking bubbles
- worsened eye sight over the year

i'm suspecting myself of having diabetes, but i'm not sure.
if you have any other idea what these might be the symptoms of, please post a reply.

thank you

  • This does sound very much like insulin resistance or diabetes. You need to have it tested. See your doctor, so you don't get worse if it does turn out to be diabetes!

  • Whatever else, you must get you eyes tested to see why your sight is deteriorating.

  • I just got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last week, I had completley different symptoms to you. But you should definately get it checked out. All the best!
