About 2-3 hours after i eat (especially breakfast) i get incredibly shaky, as if i was hopped up on caffeine. I actually thought it was caffeine, but i cut coffee out a few mornings and it still happens. I if i do not eat something I start to have trouble comprehending things, have trouble talking, and even get kinda dizzy. I also notice that sometimes during the day i will feel tired for no reason at all(i usually get 8 hours of sleep), and feel absolutely fine after a short time. I am 20, 5' 9", and 155lbs, in college, and consider my diet and lifestyle much healthier than the norm. My sister has type 2 diabetes, but i think that had more to do with her weight. Could these be signs of diabetes?

Yes, they could be but the best thing to do would be to go to the doctor and have a couple of blood tests to help decide if it is diabetes or not. It's better just to be tested and know for sure rather than wonder. If it is diabetes, the sooner you get it under control the better, if it's not diabetes, well, than you can rest your mind knowing that. Please, go to your doctor and get tested and let us all know what the visit with the doctor tells you. Best of luck.
