My Dad is an Insulin dependant diabetic. His syptoms included dramatic weight loss, unquenchable thirst, weeing alot and general fatigue. Can't help with the hormone imbalance.

Hi Linzoid - I take it this is a follow on from you're other thread about your tiredness?

It's certainly a symptom, along with extreme thirst.

The hormone imbalance would perhaps cause a noted increase in weight?

Both would be discovered with a simple blood test... as would anaemia which also causes severe fatigue and lethargy....

Get down to your GP and have a blood sample taken, I'm sure they'll have it cleared up in a couple weeks.
