    go and see my doctor..

    Recently I have been drinking a lot, and therefore needing the toilet a lot, but i put it down to it being summer.

    I also feel dizzy or faint sometimes, but that has been happening for a couple of years.
    For example i cant just get out of bed in the morning and have to sit up slowly.
    I have quite low blood pressure so i guessed that was why.

    i sometimes crave sweet food, i sometimes just need bread or cucumber or something.
    thats just part of being human though i guess.

    I eat pretty healthily, and am 17.

    The main point that worried me is my boyfriend had been talking to his friend, and he had got worried, as his friend has said, if in general a girl tastes kinda sweet down there, they are probably diabetic.

    oh and the other thing is cloudy pee? sometimes it is other times its not.

    should i see my doctor?

    Some of the symptoms you describe are of diabetes.

    It could be other things.

    However, if I were you, I'd go to get checked out. A simple finger-prick test will initially give the doctor the right steer.

    Good luck.

    If you are diabetic, don't worry. There is lots of help and support out there to help you.
