User :   hows it going, i feel quite dizzy, naseous, confussed, tierd, almost like fainting a bit, shortness of breath, a bit jittery and clamy. I think my blood sugar is messed up but i dont know if its to high or to low, im really scared and think i have diabetes. Im trying to figure out what to eat but the symptoms are somewhat alike from what i have read, it is hard for me to sit down and focus without wanting to pass out.
Doctor :   Hi

User :   kk
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   May I know your age, gender, height and weight?
