From York, United Kingdom:

I am a 17 year old female, and I think I may have diabetes because for over a months now, I need to urinate frequently (at least 10 times a day), and I am always thirsty and drinking water. I am also always feeling tired, although I have felt this way for a while. I'm not sure if I should go to my doctor as these are the only symptoms I have.


If you are worried, you should see your doctor. Some simple tests will tell you whether or not your symptoms are due to diabetes.
