In the dailymail UK today it said that if you are tired and constantly have no energy than you could have diabetes. Apparantly in the UK there are an estimated 60,000 people that have it and dont know they have it. Scary. It runs in my family and im always tired but i have 2 year old daughter so i thought tiredness came hand in hand with kids. But who knows

tell me about it. I found out I was diabetic when I went to the doctor for an earache and he asked me if I knew I was a diabetic. the test had been on my chart for over a year and the doctor I had just had before this doctor had never even mentioned it at all. I was dumbfounded. This was a clinic where the doctors kept being rotated from the Univerisity of Irvine. So then the doctor put me on glyburide and a strict diet. I dieted like crazy and exercised every day and got my blood sugar down to normal so was taken off the glyburide and was just on a good eating plan and exercise.take God for the new doctor who knew what he was doing.

There are many forms of the disease with differing severity. While part of it is more people have unhealthy lifestyles, a good part of the increase in diabetes and many other diseases over the pas couple of decades has to do with better testing methods and more awareness people should get tested.
