Diabetes ja of nee


Ek get so paar maande terug begin sukkel met duisligheid en erg pyn in bene(meer van n lam pyn). My dok ht my yster gestoet en gesien dat my yster baie laag was. Sy het toe vir my medikasie gegee wat ek no amper vir 3maande no al gebruik. Die pyn in my bene is ni weg nie en voel altyd sleg! Sy wil my no vir diabetes toets stuur!!! Ek is 22 jaar ouderdom en rook glad nie. Wat ek ok graag wil wet is dat die bloedsuiker on diabetes heeltyd verhoog en baie laag weer kan daal???

Dear Johan
Glucose levels can certainly go up and down during the day. To get an idea of how much your glucose levels fluctuate and whether you have diabetes or not, you can do a glucose tolerance test which looks at your levels fasting and 2 hours after a glucose drink.

part 2. I also have bad anxiety, bad ssrets, long term depression that started when I was a child. I have hypothyroidism. I have cortisone deficiancy, vit d deficiancy, osteoporosis, and epilepsy,and was wondering if I''m heading for insulin resistance, or diabetes. I am cutting down/out as much sugar and carbs. I''m also excersising more. Will this bring it back to normal? They mentioned possibly puting me on tricor if it doesn''t come down but I don''t want to get on it. (
