    A missed menstrual period is most often the first sign of pregnancy. Symptoms can begin as early as 1-2 weeks after conception.

    Symptoms usually appear 2 to 7 days after a person has been exposed to gonorrhea, and in girls they may appear even later. Source:http://kidshealth.org/PageManager.jsp?dn=familydoctor&article_set=20466&lic=44&cat_id=20173

    If you are concerned about diabetes, then you need to talk to your doctor! That being said, diabetes is a disease that is diagnosed with blood work and laboratory values not just from symptoms! Many people with diabetes have absolutely no symptoms at all and would never have any reason to suspect that anything was wrong unless their doctor happened to discover abnormalities on routine blood work! A brief explanation of diabetes follows with some on prediabetes:Type 1 diabetes tends to occur in young people, generally starting at childhood but some people develop it even into their 30s (I worked with a guy who got it this late)! In this condition it is thought that a persons immune system attacks the cells in their pancreas that make insulin, so they stop producing insulin! Once this happens, a person can have all kinds of symptoms, including thirst, frequent urination, constant hunger, and weight loss! Some people will also feel awful and may become delirious having no idea where they are or what is going on around them! There is not really such a thing as prediabetes with Type 1 diabetes!Type 2 diabetes tends to happen in older people and is the result of insulin resistance coupled with a failure of the pancreas to produce enough insulin to overcome the resistance! What is sometimes referred to as prediabetes is when the body simply has insulin resistance, but still produces enough insulin to overcome this! When the pancreas fails to produce the necessary amount of insulin, then the person becomes a type 2 diabetic! How is insulin resistance diagnosed?? With lab values from samples of blood! The progression of type 2 diabetes is judged by the dose of insulin needed to maintain a low enough blood sugar and by the complications of diabetes present!Complications of diabetes that doctors look at to monitor disease progression are not thirst and frequency of urination! Thirst, frequency of urination, and hunger (also called polydipsia, polyuria, and polyphagia or the 3 Ps), are acute symptoms caused by high blood sugar and failure to become satiated! Giving insulin and correcting blood sugar will quickly correct these symptoms! To monitor disease progression, doctors look at chronic problems from diabetes, which tend not to get better once present even with insulin and improved blood sugar control! Some examples are damage to blood vessels (which can require amputation in extreme cases), damage to nerves (leading to numbness in the feet and hands), eye damage, kidney damage, and some other problems! Unfortunately, it is difficult to say how soon this type of damage will occur after the development of diabetes, but it frequently takes years! Chronic good blood sugar control tends to delay the onset of these symptoms in general! However, some people are lucky and have no symptoms despite poor blood sugar control, while other people with very good blood sugar control develop symptoms quickly!There are also some other types of diabetes that can relate to pregnancy or to non-immune pancreas damage!To sum things up, a concern about diabetes is a reason to see a doctor, who can do what it takes to make a diagnosis or rule diabetes out! The symptoms can present in many different ways, and may not be present at all! If a person has 2 symptoms suggestive of diabetes, there is no telling how long until they will develop another or if they will!
