I am concerned that I may have diabetes or hypoglycemia. These are my symptoms:
-sweet-smelling sweat
-pain in my joints after having something overly sweet

and after not eating for about 3 hours-
-shaking
-shivering (even though it's 30 degrees out)
-feeling dizzy
-feeling kinda out-of-it (confused)
what do you think?

  • Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. With Type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. With Type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood. Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause serious problems. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes can also cause heart disease, stroke and even the need to remove a limb. Pregnant women can also get diabetes, called gestational diabetes.
