    There are several ways to test:

    1) A simple urine test will give an indication for howhigh your blood sugar is.

    2) They can do a resting blood sugar test to see how high your sugar is.

    3) They can do a Hemoglobin A1C to see on average, how high your sugar has been.

    Symptoms of diabetes include: Weight loss, irritability, sudden poor eyesight, insatiable thirst, leg cramps when you lay down, horrid pain in your kidneys, increased urination
