I am hoping someone with knowledge about diabetes or other metabolic dysfunctions can shed some insight on this:
I have occasionally noticed my urine smelling very sweet, only in maybe the past month. I didn't think anything of it. Last night I over ate on chocolate, today my urine smells super sweet. So, I decide maybe I should google this and see if there's something I need to know about. Lo and behold, this appears to be a sign of diabetes.
Background info: Have been eating paleo/primal for one year. I eat fatty meat, lean meat and every thing in between, dairy, eggs and potatoes or sweet potatoes almost every day. I'll eat a little dark chocolate and honey occasionally. 5'3 106 lbs. Before paleo I got tired/crabby/murderous if I didn't eat every three hours. I ate tons of carbs and sugar. Low blood pressure and easily got lightheaded when standing up.
Is it possible to exhibit symptoms of diabetes, like glucose showing up in urine, without actually having diabetes?
When you eat very little sugar, does it consequently increase your sensitivity to sugar which can also manifest as diabetes symptoms?
I know I need to go to the doctor if this continues, but financially it's impossible right now. In the meantime any insight is much appreciated. I know almost nothing about diabetes, I never thought it was something I needed to worry about. Thanks.
