The only way to find out if your son has diabetes is to see a doctor and have him tested. Drinking more, urinating more and being tired, losing weight are all symptoms of diabetes. But they could indicate something else or nothing at all. If you are concerned, see your doctor. Nobody online can diagnose him.
