I was sitting here thinking about this and was reading on google about extreme thirst and Type 2.
I noticed that I drink A LOT through out the day… I have this constant thirst all day long. I can drink 3, 4,5 bottles of water or a whole pitcher of unsweet tea ( throughout the day not at one time) , or multiple glasses of tap water a day and STILL be thirsty.
It seems like I am going to the kitchen A LOT through out the day for something to drink.
But my numbers are good. I mean my last a1c check as ya’ll know was 5.4. My numbers do come down after 2 hours after eating. I have had a time or two this week and last week where I was still like 130 after 2 hours but checking again after about an hour I am back down to normal 100’s again.
Yes I have a family history of Type 2 as ya’ll know… My mother and her sister, her brother, her father. My 2 great aunts. and Grandma on Dads side.
But I don’t see any of my other family members drinking a lot? Even my own mother who’s a Type 2 doesn’t drink a lot either. She can have a ROUTE 44 drink from Sonic last from the time we get it during happy hour from 2 to 4 pm last her until bedtime. Me, drinks last like 30 sec ( But I only get a large though). I can have the drink, drunk before we even get half way home and the closest sonic is like 2 1/2 miles up the road from me.
Yes, I read some meds can cause thirst… But thirst that is this bad though?
This is something I am going to bring up with the new doctor when I see him next week. I wonder what all of this means? Am I really a Type 2 or could it be, and I read this can happen a " once fat but has lost a lot of weight with HBP ( now under control ) LADA and not know it"? I have not had any GAD or C-PEPTIDE tests ran on me.
I read that IN SOME CASES… There can be " OVERWEIGHT LADA’S" who get diagnosed as Type 2 but then that all changes later after testing.
What do ya’ll think?
