I am really wondering if I am diabetic. I haven't been to a doctor in a while but I am fatigued and always extremely thirsty. I will also become shaky if I do not eat food with high sugar content. Lets say I eat a Mcdonalds burger (which I have recently quit eating because I need to lose weight, but I would eat fast food everyday for lunch at work) I will feel energetic and I will not be thirsty. I don't know if anyone here might be able to tell me for sure but previously I self-diagnosed myself as hypoglycemic (blood sugar was tested and it was at 40 while I was having one of my shaky episodes) But I'm really not sure. Is anyone here a doctor or had personal experience with diabetes? I appreciate any input.
Thanks - Tim
