It is pointless to ask this question(s) on an internet board.

As far as determining whether or not you have diabetes, go to your physician and request (1) an hba1c and (2) a glucose tolerance test or an insulin clamp protocol. And obtain a general work-up.

You have symptoms that suggest multiple etiologies.

How are you? Definite diagnosis of diabetes is usually with blood testing your glucose levels as mentioned above.    A fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test , an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) or a random plasma glucose test,  along with an assessment of symptoms, is used to diagnose diabetes. Risk factors for diabetes include age, excess body weight , family history of diabetes, hypertension,  and dyslipedemia increases the chance of being a diabetic. Hope this helps. Take care and do keep us posted.
