Can anyone explain diabetes to me?
Could somebody please explain the symptoms of diabetes? Is it something you can develop or does it have to be in your gene? Is it bad to drink a can of regular sprite a day? I would just like to know on average how much sugar I should be having each day.
@kavya-0 Do you think you have some symptoms of diabetes, or is it more that you worry you might get diabetes if you have too much Sprite or sugar? Because there is diabetes in my family, I gave up drinking sugary drinks and adding sugar to hot drinks 30! years before I actually developed diabetes. I was also cautious about confectionery, cakes, and sweet pastry.
Also, how old are you? It often makes a difference to what type you may have. The most important thing is that if you think you have symptoms of diabetes get your blood sugars checked ASAP. Then you can either stop worrying or start managing it.
