    I was just wondering... I'm 39 and the last 2 years I get bad prostate pain when my blood sugar is above 11. When it goes back to normal the pain goes away but when it's there it's like I'm bursting for a pee even when I'm not and when I do go it takes ages and is extreamly uncomfortable. I asked my gp and he said I was to young for prostate cancer and if it was the case I would have pain all the time. Does anyone else have this problem?

    First, sadly you are never 'too young' to get prostate cancer although it would be very unsual. I would definitley ask for a prostate check by the GP i.e. finger job and then further investigation if needed. It could be a prostate infection rather than bladder/urine or something else. I wouldn't expect it to be related directly to diabetes but high blood suagr could exacerbate any infection.
