    Diabetes and condoms

    I recently met a guy via online dating, we haven't met in person yet, but through our phone call, he said he's type 1 diabetic, and wearing a condom is not pleasurable for him, it's less sensitive for him due to having diabetes, so he wants me to be on birth control (talk about weird first conversation before first date).

    Am I diabetic

    I went to the doctor about a month ago because I had symptoms of diabetes. They checked my blood sugar and it was normal. (5.3) Now I am still frequently using the bathroom and drinking alot. I am also always tired and I can be very alive and happy at one time and five mins later in exhausted and ready to sleep. I'm wondering if it's possible for me to have developed diabetes since they checked my blood sugar or if I'm in the complete wrong track and have something else.

    Nursing home caused the death of my mother after only 4 days

    My mother had type 2 diabetes controlled by medication for about 30 years. I was caring for her for about 20 years but it was getting difficult and I am older now. I admitted her to a nursing home on June 14 and we, her family, called 911 on June 19 because she was not herself, she was sleeping too much, not responsive. My mother always took her meds and checked her blood sugar. If it seemed high, around 180, then she made sure to make extreme adjustments. We have since found out that her BG went....
