Are these symptoms diabetic? My blood sugar was checked just randomly at some walkathon and it was pretty high according to the nurse there it was 245 over some low number i can't remember. Anyhow I am a person that suffers from hyperglycimia as it is and

I : I am not sure about those nausea and faint feelings but there is little doubt that you have diabetes if your sugar was above 200 randomly. Nausea and feeling faint are not typical symptoms of diabetes. But you might feel better once you have that diagnosis confirmed and you get your sugar/diabetes under control.
