Hey everyone, sorry for the long post. A little background. I’m a 21 year old female in nursing school. No history of high BP or anything. I’m overweight and my grandmother has diabetes type 2 so it’s always been a worry in the bAck of my head that I may get it some day. Well at the beginning of the semester we were talking about diabetes in class and not sure why but it sent me into a panic wonder if I had the disease (I have a history of anxiety, I tend to worry excessively about things, but not formally diagnosed.) basically, since we began talking about diabetes in class, I’ve had the symptom of frequent urination. I’ve always seemed to go slightly more often than my friends ever since I was little but that’s normal for me. Lately, I feel like I have to go every hour or 2 and am constantly checking my body as to whether or not I have to go. It seems to be more frequent when I’m home and worrying. But it’s not like an overwhelming urge to go, just a feeling that my bladder is somewhat full. When I’m out or busy, not thinking about it I tend to go normally about 6-8 times a day. I also don’t get up at night to go. I don’t have any excessive thirst, blurred vision, yeast infections, slow healing, tingling, nothing like that. Just the sometimes frequent urination. I also don’t drink much water. When I do go it’s not a huge amount and sometimes I’ll go every 30 mins just to “check”. We had to take our blood glucose at school one day for a lab and mine was 98 but that was 2 hours after having a bacon egg and cheese on a roll lol. Of course I wonder if the glucometer gave me a falsely low reading. I’m just getting so nervous that I have diabetes but not sure if I should get checked at the doctor, help
