Does this sound like I may have type 1 diabetes?
I am constantly thirsty, like I can never get enough. And every single time I take a bite of food, I feel extremely dehydrated. Whenever I eat something I go through a huge glass of water. Also, I have to pee alllll the time. But the only thing is it is only usually at night that I have to go. I have a really hard time trying to sleep when I am constantly going to the bathroom. Also, I feel constant fatigue and ill, and whenever I am at work I always have my customers tell me that I don't look good and look really rundown. The other day I almost passed out, I was walking into my room and all of a sudden my vision went black and i could feel my body swaying back and forth and next thing i new i was on the ground, but i don't think i lost consciousness. Also, I don't know if this applies to being diabetic but whenever I eat I feel extremely light headed and even more tired, I have to lay down and close my eyes for like 10 to 20 minutes until the light headiness goes away? Also, if this doesn't sound like diabetes would else could it be? I used to be anemic but I have been taken pills for that ever since i found out so i don't think that is what it is.

Carly, you need to go to the doctor right now. These are the classic symptoms of Type one diabetes. If you have it, which I think you do, you are at risk for or already in diabetic ketoacidosis which can be life threatening.
I was diagnosed in january and had pretty similar experiences.Source(s): Type one

Well, you should see a Doctor whether or not you're diabetic. If you're not, you should see a Doctor to find out what your symptom are coming from and if you are diabetic, you need to discuss treatments.
Your symptoms aren't entirely consistent with diabetes. The thirst, urination, fatigue and feeling ill are typical symptoms of untreated diabetes but the reputation that diabetics have for passing out and being light headed are due to taking too much diabetes medication or insulin. Unless you've been taking certain medications like Glyburides or taking insulin, the fainting would not likely be related to diabetes. Some people do get faint and dizzy with high glucose levels but that would be rare, it's usually low glucose levels that cause that. It is possible that your pancreas over produces insulin after a meal and the you would get dizzy, faint and light headed in about two hours after a meal, that would be reactive hypoglycemia.
If the dizziness goes away when you lie down for a while then it's likely to be vasovagal syncope, also known as the common faint. It's triggered by fear, anxiety and stress that builds up within you so you may not be able to associate to any single source of anxiety or stress, a simple scent can set it off.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasovagal_response http://www.mentalhealthy.co.uk/anxiety/anxiety/anx...

There is a lot of stuff on the internet that is basically fat-shaming diabetics for causing their own diabetes with their bad diet and lack of exercise and general lack of moral fibre. A lot of this stuff is written by non-doctors, often with a supplement or diet or training plan to sell that they claim will completely cure diabetes if only people stick to it.
I read this interesting book https://tr.im/1VsJQ that gave me a lot of useful tips about my disease and also a different perspective on the best therapeutical approach. I think you should read it too.
