hi this is just a question about whether or not i should get tested now occaisionaly i have a lot of sugar most days i have bout 4 2 finger kit kats spread throughout the day (bad i know).
I have always drunk and urinated alot but the doctor has told me before thats because of my kidneys (something bout when my mum was pregnant with me i had a twin and it affected their development).
Now recently my eyes have changed a bit but that could be due to my glasses being a bit bent. Also i have developed and itch all over in the past few days, mainly on my shins but there is no sign of a rash.... should i get myself tested for diabetes? or does this sound like a false alarm? Im 22 and slightly underweight too.

Sorry its probably just me worrying after my friend recently got rushed to hospital due to diabetes and i had to help him. Everything turned out fine just shocked me as was only person there to help and had never had to deal with it before.

Welcome to the forum, aximand.  I think you might be a bit anxious about your health but what you're describing doesn't sound like diabetes.  However, regardless of your young age or anything else, maybe a visit to your doctor for a blood test would help you put your mind to rest.  You are right to be concerned about health, which is a good thing, but don't stress over the unknowns.  A blood test (or a couple of them) will tell you and the doctor if you have diabetes or not.  Skin can be itchy in winter, so that might be the cause but, again, a visit to the doctor with all these concerns will answer your questions.  yeah   And let us know what happens, ok?
