In brief: Get Tested
If you have excessive thirst, excessive sleepiness especially after eating high carbohyrate meals, excessive urination especially if this is associated with excessive thirt then you may have diabetes; next step is to see your doctor for blood sugar checks to confirm the diagnosis.
Other signs include fungal infections adn slow healing of cuts adn scrapes.

In brief: A1C
For many years the 2 hour glucose tolerance test has been accepted as the "standard" for diagnosing diabetes in adults, however, and as of late, a more convenient and less cumbersome test (called the glycolayted hemogolobin or in short a1c) has been adopted by various organizations as an acceptable alternative.
Checking your fasting glucose in addition to A1c is a good start.
