Possible: If a diabetic is losing sugar in the urine, he will get thirsty , hungrier, and urinate more. Diet sugar is now considered not good for people with diabetes. Looks like you are over anxious about your health status. If you have a disease condition, it will be a relief to get it detected sooner. If you don't have one, even better. Why worry over something you have no control over.?
