    Type 1 diabetes is usually in childhood and type 2 usually develops in adulthood. Having diabetes alone does not cause weight loss. You can gain or loose or stay the same depending on your medication and diet and activity. You should see a Doctor ASAP if you suspect diabetes.

    I am more concerned that you are focusing on the weight loss idea. Dieting too much whether you are diabetic or not is not healthy. If you are diabetic, not eating right could cause serious health issues or even death. Your health is far more important than worrying about being a small size.
