I suspect I have diabetes but not sure


Q: Hello! I'm Gamila, hi. Umm, I wasn't diagnosed with diabetes but I think I have it, why? Good question. I get really dizzy and I feel so weak and lose my balance when I get up if I didn't eat for a few hours, and I get hungry all of a sudden and I feel like I have to eat right now, also I have problems with my period, a doctor said I have so many cysts, so I believe I have POCS. My sugar intake throughout the day is low, I don't know if that's the reason or not, I drink tea with one teaspoon of sugar only, I used to have two, but I just reduced it I don't know , and when I feel that weak and dizzy I eat something sugary and I become fine. However, I read it was a symptom to have the urge to pee much at night, that's not the case, I pee once or twice a day tops. Sorry if that was too much information, thank you so much in advance less than 3
Also I'm 16

Symptoms:  Dizzy, weak
