Hi, Did he run a urine analysis? Fasting glucose test? Thanks
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Urine test was clear
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 1 year ago.
And the glucose test?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is that a blood test? If so then I didn't have one. I've had more discharge than usual also
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 1 year ago.
Fasting blood glucose is a blood test. Any time there is an increase in frequency of urination, one needs to rule out diabetes. More discharge can also indicate a vaginal infection, so a swab is usually taken and sent for culture. Overactive bladder is another possibility. That usually requires a urologist or gyno-urologist to diagnose and treat. Bladder pain is mentioned as a possible, but unusual, side effect of olanzapine. If it is a new drug to you, it would be more likely be the culprit. If you've been on it for a while, it is unlikely to be the cause of the pressure. Please let me know if you have questions. Best regards, Schuyler~

I had swabs and they were clear. Not pregnant as period was two weeks ago. Had an issue with enlarged uterus before but was never told why. Would you recommend an utrasound?
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 1 year ago.
An ultrasound couldn't hurt at this point since nothing else seems to be showing up. It's a real puzzle. Best regards, Schuyler~
