what are the symptoms to being diabetic?

or are there any symptoms? i’ve been noticing a lot of shaking going on before i eat..only in my hands, not anywhere else. it’s only before i eat anything, but if i don’t eat enough, or i notice that i feel hungry again, i start to shake. i have pcos and the last time i went to the doctor’s they said i had slight high blood pressure but nothing to worry about. sometimes i have aches and pains come from nowhere, mostly headaches and knees. help?
ps, PCOS is polycystic ovarian syndrome, A common disorder in women in which the ovaries produce an excess amount of male hormones (androgens). Symptoms of PCOS include irregular or no periods, acne, obesity and excess hair growth. This disorder often prevents ovulation, leading to infertility.
oh and, yes i feel the urge to pee a lot, but whenever i try to go nothing comes, and i do get thirsty very easily, and nothing seems to help the thirst problem

    "Type 1 Diabetes – Symptoms

    Symptoms of type 1 diabetes usually develop quickly, over a few days to weeks, and are caused by blood sugar levels rising above the normal range (hyperglycemia). Early symptoms may be overlooked, especially if the person has recently had an illness, such as influenza (flu). Early symptoms include:

    * Frequent urination, which may be more noticeable at night. Some young children who have learned to use the toilet may start wetting the bed during naps or at night.
    * Extreme thirst and a dry mouth.
    * Weight loss.
    * Increased hunger (possibly).

    Sometimes the blood sugar level rises excessively before a person knows something is wrong. Because insulin is not available, the cells in the body are unable to get the sugar (glucose) they need for energy. The body begins to break down fat and muscle for energy. When fat is used for energy, ketones-or fatty acids-are produced and enter the bloodstream, causing the chemical imbalance diabetic ketoacidosis. This is a life-threatening condition. Symptoms of diabetic ketoacidosis are:

    * Flushed, hot, dry skin.
    * Loss of appetite, abdominal pain, and vomiting.
    * A strong, fruity breath odor (similar to nail polish remover or acetone).
    * Rapid, deep breathing.
    * Restlessness, drowsiness, difficulty waking up, confusion, or coma. Young children may lack interest in their normal activities."

    I might add that a person’s bedroom may have a *fruity* smell in the morning. Our son’s smelled like apples.
