Here's a link to American Diabetes Assoc.: http://www.diabetes.org/Â
Go to the first link on the top left.Â Click on "All about diabetes"Â Then click on "Diabetes Risk Test" and then after, click on the "Overview" to give you some ideas if you have the symptoms that might be putting you at risk.Â
The feeling weak and sometimes passing out b4 you had you little man, could have been low iron. But if you were feeling nauseous during the day, esp. before a meal, you might have been hypoglycemic, which is low blood sugar. Remember, that either way, either high or low blood sugar, that protein is paramount to helping your body maintain the proper level.
Protein facilitates the natural sugar that you get from foods. If you were hypoglycemic then you would need protein 3 times a day (eggs, nuts, meat, dried beans) to keep your energy level up. Along with low iron, red meat gives the best supply. With high blood sugar I would limit starches (bread, cereals, pastas) and eliminate sugar altogether, including sweet drinks.
Check out the site. I understand your worry and also your concern to feel better and heal your body. :)
