    if you spend half your life weeing and the other drinking because your thirst constantly. you may get blurred vision. you may pick up skin infections like thrush. if in doubt see your doctor. why do you think you have diabetes.

    There are many symptoms of Diabetes. Perhaps you could tell us what makes you think you may have the condition?

    We cannot diagnose you, we are not doctors. If you are worried you should speak to your GP.

    not all have symptoms .. but if blood glucose HbA1c is in the diabetic area one is rather sure of the diagnosis..and it is important to take action then and change eating style
