Diabetes help?


Q: Hey. My name is Victoria and I'm 17 years old. This past week I was on vacation with my school. The second night in I passed out on my friend Barrett. They called the paramedics and my pupils were dilated and I had high blood pressure, like 162,107. They brought me back to the hotel where the school nurse was. She told me that my blood pressure was still high, like 172,104, and that I had a fruity odor to my breath. She checked me the next day and my blood pressure was still high but that I seemed ok so they let me go. That night I passed out again on my friend Megan. She said my breath smelled like fruit again and that I was pale and my eyes were dilated. She gave me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to eat when we got back to the hotel at about 9:30 and shortly after that I felt so much better. The school brought me to the hospital anyway. They ran blood and urine tests but said everything came back normal. They send me back to the hotel. I recently got the paperwork from that trip to the hospital and my blood sugar was 96 at about 2:30. They released me and the rest of the trip as long as I ate frequently and drank a lot of water, which wasn't really a problem since I had an unsatiable thirst, I was fine. I went to my doctor the day after we came back. I hadn't eaten since the plane ride home at about 7:30 PM and the appointment was for noon. My blood sugar was 120. They too took blood and urine. I went to school the next day and almost passed out in the lunch line. The doctor called my mom the next day with the results and said everything came back normal. Now I have no idea what is wrong with me. They were saying diabetes because of the fruity breath but now they say everything is normal. What is wrong with my body?
