Hello! I am a 15 year old female and I have been having weird symptoms for awhile now.
First it was extreme thirst and hunger then frequent bathroom trips and now its painful cramps and tingling in my legs and feet especially at night, I also wake up a lot due to either being extremely thirsty or having to use the bathroom... again. I have had fainting episodes about a year ago but not so much now. I was tested for diabetes but I guess it came out negative. My question is could I have diabetes now? I'm not overweight and I'm pretty healthy I have not been to a doctor yet.
Please help!!

Hi hannahleawang316

Unfortunately, we cannot give you a diagnosis through this board (and I am in no way a medical professional). I encourage you to call or make an appointment with your doctor to share your concerns and symptoms.

In the mean time here is a page that will give you an overview of type 1 diabetes as well as a slideshow that you may find helpful.
