I wanted to know what you thought of these symptoms:
Can diabetes cause swollen lymph nodes? And what are the chances that what is happening to me is diabetes?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I think you are worrying too much. You are just 19. Enjoy life.
The fluctuations in your weight will be most probably because of your different habits of eating and playing. When your eating more than you play, you are bound to gain weight. Right?
The cramps in your muscles can be caused by electrolyte imbalance. So, keep yourself hydrated when you play. You can add a pinch of salt to your water as well.
Your symptoms are definitely not pointing towards diabetes as such. Still, if you suspect you are suffering from diabetes, you need to check your blood glucose levels in fasting and postprandial states. That is the only diagnostic method to label you as a diabetic.
Symptoms are vague and non-specific even in cases of diabetes.
Hope you are satisfied with my answer and explanation. Have a great day. Regards.

Answer: Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com. I-pill only makes the hormonal environment unsuitable for the embryo to get attached to the uterus lining.
