hi, i am and 18 year old girl and for the past year or so i have been suffering with a variety of different symptoms. The main being i feel myself drop and go tired very easily and start to shake if i have not eaten in a few hours or so or food containing sugar. My heart rate rises and i become flushed and very shaken. Furthermore, i have aquired an unquenchable thirst and an exceptional dry mouth with it. Along with this i do get tingling in my hands and legs, but mainly in the legs, but i am unsure whether this is due to a back problem which i have recently had an MRI for. I do get very tired and feel very weak like i have no energy and do tend to fall asleep after very little exertion sometimes. Please could someone tell me whether there is a trace of diabetes symptoms in what ive said or whether it could be something else.

Thankyou very much.

The only way to find out if you have diabetes is to have your blood tested. You can buy a cheap blood glucose meter and start testing at home. Keep a log of when and the time of testing and see if your blood sugar is elevated. Have you seen a doctor? Best to be safe than sorry.

Yes, some of those symptoms go along with diabetes. They could also be other things. I would see a doctor and get it checked out. Its a pretty simple blood test :)

Welcome to our forum, sophbonnie, and I hope you'll seek medical treatment. There are many ailments which could produce the kind of symptoms you describe, and the only way to know for sure is to be tested.

Take care and keep us posted.
