Hi there I'm new to this community but was hoping you can shed some light and possibly reassure me
I'm 19 and diabetes is on my dads side by my nan and another member I think however I'm not obese or overweight I don't tend to consume an overload of sugar I like cola and sweets like most do.
I have lupus but have been experiencing one symptom of frequent urge to urinate now I can hold my urine for quite a long time I just have a feeling there all the time I'm not in general thirsty just like the occasion bit of cola here and there probley a class a day or two. I do get tired but that is due to my lupus as that causes a lot of tiredness.
It has been a problem since getting ill but people started to notice that I used to go alot I mentioned this to my doctor and no infections was present nor was their sugar in my urine now I'm having a blood sugar test to test for diabetes. This scares the hell out of me as iv already got 2 diseases to manage at the age of 19 its alot already
Can you please shed some advice on symptoms that you may of had whilst getting diagnosed. As I thinking to much of it and am dreading my blood results. It could possibly be something else right?
Thanks for reading my long post
