Customer Question
Hello, I've been diagnosed...

Hello, I've been diagnosed with diabetes about 5 months ago.. they told me they can't really pin point what kind of diabetes u have but anyways.. these days my sugar has been always high for no reason. Im taking the same doses on insolin and everything and today while i was lying in bed trying to sleep I felt an excruciating pain from my bottom right of my ribcage. It felt like something got riped. I still feel it and it hurts a lot. If feels like its burning. Does it relate to diabetes in any way?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I only take iron pills

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I only take my insulin and take iron pills.
