      Here are 10 tell tale symptoms of prediabetes and diabetes.  A diabetic or prediabetic may or may not have all of these listed below but if you do experience any of them, you may want to visit the doctor to perform a fasting plasma glucose test (FPG) or HbA1c test to determine if you have diabetes.  The top 10 symptoms are:

         1. sudden weight loss
         2. tiredness and fatigue
         3. extreme thirst
         4. frequent urge of urination

    "what could be indicate that you have diabetes??? and what is the best diat that you could have????" Not sure about these, but I'm pretty sure you can get diabetes from eating too much fast food.

    There are various sources of noticeable symptoms one can observe in a diabetic case.
    The symptoms are here outlined.

    1.There is frequent cause for urination in which the bladder is always emptied
    2.There is the urge to eat frequently even after taking full meals.
    3.Tiredness and fatigue is a major noticeable change experienced.
    4.Slow healing of minor cuts and wounds is noticeable too
    5.Blurred vision is something to watch out for.
    6.There is tingling sensation in the hands, feet or sudden numbness
    7.Rapid or sudden weight loss is also experienced

    If two symptoms of the above mentioned is noticed, the best advice is to consult a physician for proper test and immediate arrest of the noticed situation or irregularities.

    My Advice on diet is high sugar containing food of any sort should be drastically reduced or forgotten. Soft drinks sold be totally forgotten and high cholesterol containing food  should be reduced

    Besides the symptoms mentioned previously, people can have Type II diabetes with no symptoms at all.   In general, though, if a person remains slender he will not develop Type II diabetes; and people who have extra weight (particularly if they have a family history of Type II diabetes) are at risk of developing it. 

    I have known a few people who were diagnosed with Type II diabetes who had extra weight (but weren't extremely obese, by any means - although they certainly looked overweight); who went on the diabetic diet and lost the extra weight.  Once they did they were able to control their diabetes by staying on the diet but no longer taking medications or insulin injections.

    For someone who is too heavy, it doesn't really matter what he ate to become overweight.  It's the weight, itself, that creates the problems.

    The only truly reliable way to know if you have it is to have blood tests.  There are times when a simple urine test may show too much sugar, but there are other times when there is no "spill over", so it may not show up in the urine. 

    The diabetic diet is actually a good one for anyone.  If someone is interested in learning more about it a good place to start may be The American Diabetes Association.  It's not just about what someone eats, but the portions and the timing of when he eats what.  Also, there are important facts to know about not allowing the blood sugar to drop to dangerous levels.
