Diabetes risk factor
I experience increased urination and abdominal pain. Does that mean I need to control glucose? I've read that belly fat is a diabetes risk factor. Should I worry about my muffin top?

If you have concern whether you have diabetes or not, you need to go and do a blood test. Increased urination and abdominal pain could be a sign of urinary tract infection, so please consult a doctor and definitely if you are overweight and have increased abdominal fat/ obesity , you need to get rid of that fat.
