I am about to turn 19 this year.. I am really worried that I have diabetes. I never anticipated that I might have it untill recently. There is 3 wound(seem like some sort of bite from insect or allergy) that I feel like its never going away for about more than 10 days(Its healed now, but still some black patches).
Now I am extremely worried that might have been I infected by it, I have never drink nor smoke my entire life, but I have a bit of eating disorder and haven't been physcically active . I am afraid to take the test, cause if my parents found out that I am infected by it, they will be devastated and I definitely don't want that. Both my dad and my elder brother is currently at their peak now. I don't want any of my problem to affect them.
Currently, I have excessive urination(clear), I cannot tell whether is it the weather which is really hot, causes me to drink a lot of water. But I don't wake up and urinate during the night(I heard that diabetes patient actually does)
I have no sign of numbness, and I really cannot tell whether I am having nausea or not due to the fear. I have been really scared recently, so scared that I cannot even think properly anymore.
I am really confused now, this sinking feeling that I am having this few day really makes me no different from a walking dead body.  
I am 6 feet tall, 96 kg. No history of diabetes. Please, someone give me someone guidance...

Shinn, I think you are worrying yourself excessively about this.  The only way you can know what's going on is by going to the doctor.  Only lab tests can diagnose whether you have diabetes or not.  Don't worry about your parents "finding out" because they will be much more worried about you if you're getting yourself agitated and stressed out now (for possibley no reason) or years from now if you do have untreated diabetes with complications.  Parents are stronger than you think they are, trust me.  Go to the doctor, please.

I just took the test in a clinic through the glucose meter, it was 5.2. I am still worrying about the diagnosis. Because 7~8 hours ago, all I ate was a bun and a egg tart, and 20 minutes before the diagnosis, I exercised a little.

I am worried that what I did might affect the diagnosis.

Do not worry. Just eat correctly and have another test in a few weeks. I am sure the test will be good again. Then you will have proof that you are fine. Good luck with this.
