I am whats considered a well controlled type II diabetic -I would not be on meds for it except as jmail pointed out diabeties can be as damaging to your kidneys as lupus
and my dr doesn't want to take any chances with my kidneys.
Light headedness and funky urine can certainly be caused by diabeties -it is easily checked. I would definetly asked to be tested-if for no other reason than ruling it out.
