Am I sick? I have all the symptoms for a chronic disease!

 
I think I may have Type 1 Diabetes. I have all the symptoms, but I don't know how to tell my parents. What should I do?

 

Type 1 Diabetes is a serious chronic disease caused by your body being unable to produce insulin, which is a hormone that breaks down sugar in your blood stream so that it can be used as energy.  Only your doctor can diagnose you with diabetes or any other disease or condition, so it’s important that you let your parents know that you think it’s time for a physical. If you’re not 100-percent comfy talking to them about how you’re feeling (and really, you should try), definitely talk to a doc ASAP.

 

The problem with trying to diagnose yourself with a disease like Type 1 Diabetes is that many of the symptoms are general, like being extremely thirsty, hungry or tired, losing weight, dry mouth and nausea. Some symptoms—losing feeling in your feet or having a distinctly fruity or alcoholic breath odor—are more distinct. If you’re dealing with any of these symptoms on a regular basis, it’s important that you talk to a doctor so you can be tested. You might just be vitamin deficient, which can be quickly treated once you find out there’s a problem.
 
And remember, if it does turn out to be something serious, your doctors are there to help. Focus on getting better and being healthy, and you'll be just fine.

 

Good luck, girlie!
