Can you still get diabetes even if you have no family history of it? What are the symptoms? what should you look for?
@gunjan Hello and welcome to the forum.
Yes, you can still get diabetes even with no family history of it.
Common symptoms are fatigue, thirst, and frequent urination, slow healing wounds, more frequent infections, excessive hunger, feeling tired after eating.
You may also consider a home glucose meter to test fasting (normal is in the 70 - 95 range) and then 2 hours after eating (normal is similar to fasting up to a maximum of about 120/ 140).
Please come back let us know how you are doing.
