Mouth dries up even after drinking lots of water,getting migraines and dizziness. Can it be diabetes ?

I am a 19 year old female. My mothers family has a history of diabetes , all her siblings except her had been diagnosed with diabetes. Two months back i took a glucose fasting test, my results was 4.8mmol/L which the doctors said was normal. But recently about two weeks now i ve been getting very thirsty, even after i have just drank some water, my mouth dries up and feels like my throat is cracking. if i drink a lot of water then i do need to go to the loo more often then before. if i don t drink when i get thirsty the next time i urinate its concentrated. also i have been getting lots of migraine headaches and feeling dizzy every now and then. i don t know if they are related to this or not. but what i wish to know is that could it be possible for me to have diabetes? should i check my glucose level again? thanks.

Hi,
To confirm that you are diabetic or pre diabetic or normal you go for following,
Glucose tolerance test (GTT),
Ag1C test which give you three months average blood glucose level.
This will give you clear concept.

welcome to healthcaremagic
you are worried and too much
consult physician/diabetologist and get tests done and be tension free
any body can develop diabetes at certain time and with family history one is to be extra careful
your features may be simply due to anxiety
it is always better to get the tests like g t t done and be assured about your status
