Hello I have diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Last year

This answer was rated:

Hello

I have diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Last year I got typhoid (Brucellosis) and my blood sugar level did go significantly out of control in spite of any routine medication. Additionally I did start suffering of low body temperature as well as lots of sweating and weakness and some kind of strange periodical diarrhea and anemia.

I went to see many physicians and I did many medical tests and ultrasounds and X-rays. I am so tired of all of that but still no one has diagnosed my illness.

I need your help...

Thank you
