So, I went to the chemist this morning to get a few things and to enquire about a persistent rash/sores that won't heal, but also haven't spread anywhere. I've had them since Easter and have put them down to stress and being run down (due to my hectic life/work/study schedule). Anyway the chemist asked me what moisturiser and I used and I told her I never use moisturiser because I drink 3-4L of a day and she went in to panic mode and told me I need to get tested for diabetes?
There is no family history of diabetes, I exercise at the gym regularly (classes, running, weights) (which for me = increased water intake given what I sweat out), and eat well the majority of the time. I don't get headaches, or leg cramps. I do get dizzy but I have low blood pressure so that would explain the dizziness I get (it's not all the time...last time I got dizzy was after jumping up from a burpee at the gym).
I'll go and get tested, but I won't get to the doctor for a couple of weeks, but it just being told to get tested for diabetes is a bit out of the blue. Was curious as to what hubbers think (I know that there can be no diagnosis, just more curious as to whether others also think I should get tested).
