My boyfriend is a diabetic and doesn't take his pills

This answer was rated:

my boyfriend is a diabetic and doesn't take his pills because they bothered his stomache he has a very cranky doctor and won't go back to him. now for the last year he has extreme bloating pain in his stomache and always has diahera and really bad mood swings. he always tired and pale looking . I know this can't be good.
No it is not good.
It can be for many reasons.
It can be from circulation problems, even in the bowel.
It can be from direct effects of the diabetes on the bowel.
It can be because sugars are always out of control.
This is a serious situation and he needs to see an internal medicine doctor; find one that is not cranky that he can work with.
