A few members of my extended family are borderline diabetic. Recently, I have been experiencing nausea, a feeling of dull pain in my intestines, and headaches when I don't eat. Could I possibly be diabetic as well?

You said you experience these things when you don't eat? I'd eat small meals throughout the day. But as sandy said, you should talk to your doctor.

Good luck!

Thanks! I often have little time to eat during the day as I have college classes for a few hours during the day with little time to eat in between. Last week, I woke up in a cold sweat, was nauseous, had a headache, and liquid stool. My mom suggested that my blood sugar may be low...She is borderline diabetic, as are other members of my extended family. After I ate an orange I felt better, yet I have kept having attacks of nausea and abdominal pain.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These are not specific symptoms of diabetes.
But keeping in view your strong family history, you should go for testing it.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
