Unlikely: Diabetes doesn't typically affect menstrual regularity so if you're late and you've engaged in unprotected intercourse, take a home pregnancy test. If negative, talk to your Family Doc about contraceptive options (assuming that you don't want to become pregnant). If positive, time to start prenatal care.

Could the reason of having diabetes be living with a sad or stressful condition for a long period of time

Could the reason of having diabetes be living with a sad or stressful condition for a long period of time

May be: Diabetes has multifactorial etiology. If the "sad and stressful condition" caused you to overeat, not exercise, and take certain medications, that could contribute to the development of diabetes. Given your young age, it is imperative that you get proper care to manage your disease. Consult an endocrinologist.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Can you get diabetes from a two week sugar binge? And how many grams of sugar consumed over a two week period could cause diabetes?

Can you get diabetes from a two week sugar binge? And how many grams of sugar consumed over a two week period could cause diabetes?

Not sugar: Diabetes is not related to your intake of sugar; actually sugar has few calories, but they are empty calories without nutrition. Adult (or type 2) diabetes is more common as you get older, if you have a family history of diabetes -- and is 70-90% related to weight. As you gain weight you become more resistant to Insulin until your pancreas is overwhelmed. It's the only risk factor you can control. ...Read more

I drink green tea every night before sleep. Could it be effecting my collesterol or diabetes in a long period of time?

I drink green tea every night before sleep. Could it be effecting my collesterol or diabetes in a long period of time?

Green tea: There are beneficial compounds in green tea, but the concentrations are very low. I would not ascribe any magical properties to green tea, but if it relaxes you, if it helps you sleep, and if it prevents you from hitting the fridge for some ice cream, it is certainly worth continuing. Not a substitute for metformin and a statin. ...Read more

I stopped getting my period, & I have to pee all the time. Right after I go I have to go again. Is it possible I have diabetes? (Some other symptoms)

Possibilities...: If you don't have your period then it is possible you are pregnant although I see it is listed under your conditions. Anyway, this could be caused by a urinary tract infection, diabetes, other kidney or urinary issues less common. Make sure you see a health provider as soon as you can for evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

I am 18 years old with type 2 diabetes and I was wondering if some of the medications im taking could be effecting my period? I am 18 years old and I currently have type 2 diabetes. I have been on numerous medications some of them have been stopped after

I: I need you to clarify a few things. What medication are you on now? If it is only victoza (liraglutide) r=then that medication does not cause menstrual irregularities. Also was your first period evern this year? If you are overweight, this is likely the reason you are not having periods. When you are overweight your body produces too much estrogen which cause an imbalance in your hormones thus preventing your period. Also there is a syndrome called polycystic ovarian syndrome which tends to be common in diabetics, this is also an issue with a hormonal imbalance, also thyroid disorders can be a possible cause.
I suggest you visit a gynecologist or your primary care provider for a work up of your irregular periods.
Best of luck. ...Read more

I am a 45 year old woman with brown spotting after period. I am not having sex so I am not pregnant and I do not have diabetes?

Early period: This is most likely just the ending of your period. Brown spotting is the color of old blood. If your periods are long ask if you are a candidate for an endometrial ablation.

Is diabetes the cause that I am not having my periods and I feel hungry after eating??

Can be: Diabetes can sometimes be a part of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which causes anovulation (no periods) as well as insulin resistance (diabetes). So, yes, the 2 can sometimes go together. Feeling hungry after eating may have more to do with your food choices than with diabetes per se.

Information too low: For good answer. Diabetes Mellitus is NOT black/white, but many shades of gray. Optimal long term health average (NOT fasting) blood glucose is 100 mg/dL or lower. This corresponds to a Hemoglobin A1c of 5.0%. Yet elevated glucose not called Diabetes until average is ~165 mg/dl; HbA1c 6.5% & higher.
