Is this normal to have diabetes at the age of 17?

If I go all day without eating any kind of sugar by the end of the day I start to get lightheaded and dizzy. I m only 17. Thank you!

If in doubt talk to your doctor. Just by skipping a meal your blood sugar can come down to hypoglycemic levels. But do not try this, sometimes it can cause complications.
