Hi, kindly get her sugar test done early morning before consuming any food - fasting sugar test and then in daytime post consuming food as well. Without these test, proper diagnosis won't be possible and proper treatment can't be recommended either. Go to any diagnostic centre - they shall have the sugar testing facility.
Body shiver due to hunger is sign of hypoglycaemia present in both type of DM. There are many other signs of hypoglycaemia which all diabetic patient and there close one should be aware of. To know the type, patient has to undergo few tests once in lifetime. They will accurately tell the type.
