Is it possible to get diabetes when I'm normal weight and young?
Well, I'm just having some suspicions. I am trying my best to eat as healthy as possible but often I can't because of my eating disorder. I'm exercise bulimic. I binge on sweets, then get freaked out and exercise 3 hours. And that's like every day...

Still, could I get/have diabetes? I'm 5'7 and weight 109 lbs. I may sound thin but I look extremely unfit, all flabby and fat. Anyways, I always get sleepy after eating, whenever I start eating I can't stop, most of my body weight is around my waist.
Additional Details
My grandma and aunt have it.
Fatigue. Like, I'm able to sleep the entire day. I have done it. Though, I woke up couple times for like half an hour.
Blurry vision, sometimes
Nausea, especially at night. I sometimes wake up feeling sick.
I'm thirsty only when I binge on sweets, but that's probably because of the salt content.
Also, I'm dizzy after eating sweets.

51% of all diabetics are underweight when diagnosed!!! Age has nothing to do with diabetes diagnosis!!

You are not being totally healthy if you are binge eating sweets then binge exercising to get rid of the percieved harm from them.

Sweets do NOT cause diabetes. Your genetic make up declares you have a 20% better chance of getting it.

At 109 pounds and 5'7", you are a little skin stretched over bones!! You need to go have a complete physical including blood analysis. You may need some psychiatric help also with your attitude!!

Get some help!!!

I'm so sweet I need insulin
There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. Although they are both forms of diabetes, they are two different diseases. Only 5%-10% of all diabetics have type 1.

Type 1 is an auto-immune disease and usually occurs in childhood or adolescents, which is why it used to be called Juvenile Diabetes. It's not caused from eating too much junk food, sugar, or having a poor lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent type 1 diabetes and there is currently no cure, although scientists say they are very close. Most people are usually thin when they're diagnosed with type 1.

Type 2 on the other hand, usually developes in adults and developes slowy over a period of time, although because of unhealthy lifestyle, more and more children are being diagnosed with type 2. Diagnoses of this type can be caused by obesity or by poor diet and lifestyle, although that is not always the case. You also have a higher chance of developing it if it runs in your family. Type 2 actually can be prevented.

Here are some of the symptoms of Type 1 diabetes. Some of them might apply to type 2 also, but I'm not completely sure...

*Increased thirst
*Frequent urination
*Increased appetite
*Drowsiness, Lethargy
*Sudden weight loss
*Sugar in urine
*Sudden vision changes
*Heavy, labored breathing
*Stupor, Unconsciousness
*Fruity, Sweet, or wine - like odor on breath

Hope this helps!

Yes, it is possible to have diabetes even though you are thin and young. If any one in your family like your parents or grandparents have it, then your chances of getting it is greater.

Your symptoms don't sound like diabetes, they sound like the beginnings of anorexia nervosa. A healthy weight for your height is between 130-140. At 109 lbs., your body mass index is only 17.1.

Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
Overweight = 25-29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

There is no way you could be flabby with 3 hours of exercise every day...you have a body dysmorphic disorder, where you are unable to see your body as it really is. Your mind adds fat where there is none. Ask your doctor for a referral to a nutritionist and see where you go from there. I'm concerned for you...you are going to cause permanent heart damage and risk your life if you don't put on a little weight. Your body has no energy to run on, that's what your symptoms are about.

yes you dont have to be fat to be diabaetic my sister has type 1 and shes normal weight.

-etc look on webmd.com

**~Maybe Love Is Not For Me~**
yes, its possible, go see a doc if you are worried!

I ن٥ﻻ ﻉ√٥ﺎ
I'm ten and have had diabetes for 7 months. I'm 5'0 and 78 lbs. I was shocked when they said "your in a state of DKA" that means DIABETIC KETO ACIDOSES. If we were to wait another hour...hour and a half I could've been shocked into a coma.

How much body weight could you possibly have you only weigh 109 pounds. You need to worry more about your eating disorder more than diabetes. But the answer to your story is yes you could have Type 1 diabetes. What symptoms makes you suspect you have it?

Yes, it is very possible. I was 22 when i was diagnosed and had no other medical problems and have the same weight and height at 22 as i do now. I also had no one else in my family to have the condition. If you think that you may be developing symptoms get to your dr and have them test you. This will help diagnose your problem....Hope this helps
