  • You have many of the signs of diabetes. Get to your doctor and get tested for it.

  • in response to the first reply I know I should go to a dr and I know you ladies can't say for sure its diabetes but I was wondering if the symptoms sounded like diabetes or not as I have no insurance and very little money to go running to the dr with something that may or may not be anything also if it sounds like diabetes I don't know how long I can wait on a dr as I would need to wait about a month before I would have the money to even do it

  • Check with your local department of human services. There may be a free clinic in your area that takes patients w/o insurance. You can also call 866.469.8209 for a free One Touch Ultra mini meter [the same one I use daily] and then get test strips from a free clinic or samples from the internal medicine dept at your local hospital.
