So before I got pregnant i was diagnosed with pcos. All 3 pregnancies i had gestational diabetes. I knew that my risk was higher of type 2 diabetes and last year i started getting numbness in my legs so the dr. tested me for type 2 and it came put fine. After a few months the numbness went away. Well last week it came back and since satutday i have had on and off diarhea. I also have my period which doesnt always give me diarhea but occassionally does. Im wondering if i should get retested. Is diarhea a symptom of diabetes?

I don't think it is.  Frequent thirst and urination are, for sure.

Have them check  your parathryoid levels and calcium levels.  They are be symptoms of low calcium.

 first of all gestational diabetes is not a real treatable disease. it is a horrible misconception promoted by ob/gyns to promote inductions and csections. the testing used to diagnose is also extremely inaccurate.

beyond that. numbness in your legs is not usually associated with diabetes. at east not until extremely advanced stages when you would surely have tested positive 3 months ago. how were you tested? do you have issues of random fatigue during the day, incessant thirst, or nausea before or after meals?
