Patient discussion about occurrence

Q. In the meanwhile can someone give any hints if this sounds like diabetes or is a natural occurrence? My husband and I are diabetic. My daughter is pregnant and has been fine so far. My daughter says that fluids are good for her and she drinks a lot of water. She also keeps snacking on a bag of toffees. Every day I see the same ritual. She says she is always hungry. She has a craving to eat anything that is sweet. I suspect that there is something wrong her. In the meanwhile can someone give any hints if this sounds like diabetes or is a natural occurrence?

A. One thing I learned from my doctor is that the body will attempt to eliminate high blood sugar by making you urinate more frequently. This is what makes you thirsty when your blood glucose is high, making you want to drink more and more. It causes the dry mouth in the morning when you wake up. This is what I was experiencing with my diabetic condition before I was diagnosed. I am an insulin resistsnt (type II) diabetic.

Thirst is just one symptom.

Getting an A1c test will determine if there is diabetes. You have to see a doctor for that and the results are usually irrefutable.

Eating sugar candy will raise the blood glucose level. This would be dangerous for a diabetic.

Tell the tohe doctor and get her tested or evaluated and then you will know the real medical condition. All any of us can do on a forum like this is share experiences and info we learn. Nothing anyone suggests can substitute for what a doctor can easily determine for something like this with a blood test.
