I've recently had a realisation that I may be diabetic. When I drink a glass of water, I'm running to the bathroom pretty quickly and then I'm also getting another glass of water. At first I thought it was funny (thirsty and peeing at the same time? My body's confused!), but now it's just damned annoying. I looked up some of the symptoms, which included blurry vision and weight loss. I've always assumed that, being a CS student, I'd have glasses by the time I graduated. My distance vision has recently started crapping out on me and I made no connection to diabetes at the time. Although I'm gaining weight, it takes me 3500-3750 calories / day to do so, but I only weigh 155 lbs!
Now this is the icing on the cake. I find that after working out I crash. I just figured that it was from, well, lifting weights and stuff. Here is what happened: I came home from the gym and grabed some Gatorade. I updated my journal while drinking my Gatorade. Then I did some reading for school (after going to the bathroom, of course) and about 15 minutes later I felt absoloutely dead. Like I need to sleep for 4 hours kind of tired.
I'm planning on getting my glucose levels checked by my GP soon. Until then, does anyone have any advice about my situation, or just information about this in general?
