During lunch time, we'd eat one big meal, and yet, I'd still feel hungry at around 2 p.m. and, unlike my cousin, I had to look for a store to buy some snacks. It occurred to me that it's normal feeling to be hungry at that time since I've used up all my energy. Another thing that usually made our day delayed was my frequent need to use the comfort room. I didn't have any reason to alarm since my intake of water is increased, therefore, the need to urinate has a reason behind it.
But my cousin, Cring, sensed that there is something wrong with me. With the knowledge that both my family sides have history of Diabetes, the risk is considerably and undoubtedly higher than those who do not.
Moreover, the three cardinal symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus is very much evident! And these are:
- polyuria - increase or frequent urination
- polydipsia - extreme thirst
- polyphagia - extreme hunger
Therefore, I realize I really need to get rid of my bad eating habit and switch to a healthy, good eating habit. I always have a very good appetite and love for sweets, especially cakes, chocolates, ice creams, etc. But, if I don't want to end up like my Mom and my late Grandma, changes in what I've been used to must be strictly implemented.
