    Hello My name is Nelson , and i have had diabetes for 3 and a half years now. i am actually really confused but hope to get some Medical help . I t actually started with me having to drink lots and lots of water. At first i really didn't know what it was so i really didn't do anything about it. then suddenly i lost a lot of muscle mass and my weight also dropped. My fingers start to shake anytime i wanted to hold something. Actually truth be told i have not seen any doctor about this since it started last 3 and a half years ago. i am now going to see one. but need some information. i am really not feeling good about how i have grown lean though. i dont not even recognize myself any more. i want to know if after diagnosis i would get back into shape again. please

    Hello Nelson.

    We are not doctors and are not allowed to diagnose or give medical advice. You will need to see your doctor for testing and diagnosis.

    Good luck.
