Hi, I am new to the forum and feel I need some advice. I am a 50 year old male and early last year I was told I am in the prediabetes stage. I have not had another blood test since because I also suffer with a condition called health anxiety. For most people going to the doctors is not an issue, however for me, it is the worst thing I can imagine and I will not go. People reading this may think grow up, grow a pair and get to the doctors, but I cant. My father had type 2 diabetes and suffered with it for many years and managed to control it well until the last few years of his life. Over the last 6-8 months I have started feeling extremely exhausted and drained, I have no get up and go and my daily routine is being affected due to the extreme tiredness. Over the last 6 weeks I have also noticed that when I eat I start to feel dizzy and light headed, it affects my vision, my speech (getting words mixed up) and can last for 1-2 hours. This is becoming more frequent. My urine is constantly dark and when I did a self urine test, the only raised indicator was glucose. Does anyone else in the prediabetes stage suffer like me?
