I have a sweet tooth and I love drinking coffee that is sweet and high in sugar content. Because of that, I always wonder does eating and taking too much sugar and sweet stuff results in diabetes. I did a research online by surfing the internet for an answer and some says taking too much sugar is NOT directly related to diabetes but some says it is related so it left me feeling confused. However, it seems that I have some of the symptoms of diabetes such as frequent urination, excessive thirst, itchy and dry skin and unusual fatigue. So I am kind of worried. Diabetes is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. People who have diabetes are twice as likely to develop heart disease than the rest of the population. High blood pressure and increased risk of stroke are also complications of diabetes. Any of you have knowledge or experience with diabetes? Do share with me as I am kind of worried that I may have diabetes. Thanks in advance.
