Uh.. please don't make a joke about this and be serious.. cause I'm really scared actually...
My mom is diabetic and I'm a girl in my teen years....
I'm not over or under weight. Pretty much average.
Lately I've found ants crawling around the trashcan in the restroom and stuff.. I mean it used to happen a few months or like a year ago but they stopped after a while, and today I saw a few ants in the crotch area of my underwear.
My mom was saying how this could mean I have diabetes and right now im really scared...
So is it probably definant with the ants that I have diabetes or is it possible I don't?

I really want to know before I do any blood testing...
Thanks

Hello There: :)

Not to worry...no jokes. That is not a Good reason to diagnose Diabetes. Ants get everywhere for other reasons also. Since you are speaking more of the bathroom, a sticky toilet would tell you more. Of course, if you and your Mom use the same toilet that info wouldn't help you to know if you have Diabetes. Since your Mom is a Diabetic, the toilet could become sticky if she has high sugar levels. And No, Diabetes is not contagious.

Having 2 or more of the main symptoms:

1. Thirst
2. Urinating more than you used to
3. Weight-loss
4. Nausea
5. Blurry Vision
6. Headaches(sometimes)
7. Really tired


If your Mom has Diabetes and if you have any of the above symptoms then you should be tested.

Welcome!! :)

Ant's are not an indicator for your symptoms toward diabetes I dear say

Get yourself a Blood Glucose Meter and do tests before you eat. You should see 6.0 or 108. It don't have to be exact figure but in the ball park.
