I am an eighteen year old male to begin with. I have had a rough health run recently, i went through a rough bout of a diarrheal disease which has mostly cleared up now for 6 months which in turn triggered an autoimmune disease in my thyroid and then after both of those i was deficient in multiple vitamins and developed chronic fatigue syndrome.
I was looking through my blood tests and medical record the other day and realized i have never been checked for diabetes.
It is not something that runs in the family but i will elaborate on why this prompted suspicion; for a long time there i was getting yeast infections, the doctor said it was most likely due to the fact my immune system was down from chronic disease. It would always come back despite me being perfectly hygienic. I went through weight loss most likely due to the diarrhea however i am eating 1.5x the recommended caloric intake or around eleven thousand kilojoules to increase weight and it has taken me 8 months to gain 9kg and i lose weight extremely quickly. I had a long time there where i was constantly thirsty. My vision would often randomly blur up and i often had minor urinary problems, mostly being the constant need to pee especially at night.
Of course all of that has the whole fatigue thing chucked on top, which is where i got the chronic fatigue diagnosis due to the severe fatigue despite no immediate cause. One of the biggest influences on my energy levels is my food, which is really strange, i miss a meal and i just crash for the rest of the day.
My fatigue has been unchanging despite following a therapy routine for chronic fatigue and i was wondering if maybe diabetes could have fallen in somewhere while everything else was happening and that is inhibiting my recovery? I most likely do have chronic fatigue due to the long run with chronic disease however it refuses change.
