I'm writing this post as I am in need of some advice for the rest of the weekend!! I am 99% sure I am type 2 and have come to this decision in the last few days. There are some very good reasons for this! I have always had type 2 at the back of my mind as mum, granddad, great-grandad, aunt and great aunt (probably more) had type 2. I rang my mum to find out when she was diagnosed and it was mid 40s - just where I am now. I have been incredibly thirsty and peeing for England recently so I thought I'd look at other symptoms that's when I found this site. THat's when I made lots of links with how I've been feeling as the following things I had identified in myself over the past few weeks, literally had conversations about them at work, but not realised they were symptoms. So these are some of the ones I can tick: tingling hands, cramps in legs, cold feet, blurred vision, hungry and exhausted. Oh and increase in weight mainly around my tummy. I can't obviously make a GP appointment until Monday but I hope I can get one on the day. So, question is... what do I do for the next day or two to make me think I am taking some control back over my body!
