You will need to do blood tests and urine tests to detect sugar in them. In case it does show presence of sugar then you wil have the diagnosuis. There are other symptoms also that you might feel like excess thirst, hunger and urination.

I get a headache every time I eat fruit . Could I be diabetic? This is a fairly new thing. I have struggled with headaches my whole life but never been able to figure out what they are connected to. A website made me think I could be hypoglycemic because I also struggle with depression, insomnia, and low energy. But all this could also be related to stress. How can I find out? Is there a blood test?
