I am twenty-one year old female. Lately i have been getting really dizzy and light headed. Whenever i eat it seems like it just makes me more nauseous. During the day i can feel my body go through bouts of weakness (where my arms would start to shake). the last time my arms started to shake was when my blood sugar would act up. i have been tested for diabetic about eight years ago, and they said i was border line diabetic. I am worried about passing out and hurting myself or somebody else. I can also sleep for twelve hours a a time and i can't feel the difference from five hours of sleep from twelve hours of sleep. i am not depressed.

  • If your last test for diabetes was 8 years ago and you were diagnosed "borderline" diabetic......you need to get re-tested ASAP. Your signs and symptoms point to diabetes. This is not something to wait on. Please go see your PCP as soon as you can.
