Customer reply replied 7 months ago
he is sleeping has not taken it lately
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
he had back pain on wed he said that is when he started feeling not to good
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

OK

Considering that he's diabetic he might have developed a kidney infection and that can definitely make one feel lousy

I suggest he see his doctor as soon as possible for an exam, blood work and a urinalysis since it sounds like he'll need a course of antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

iT IS fRIDAY CAN HE WAIT TO mONDAY OR SHOULD WE CALL HIM NOW OR HIS ANSWERING SERVICE
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
hello are you there
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

It's possible he caught a bug but I think it's more likely a kidney infection

Unless he starts to spike a high fever Monday is soon enough for him to be checked out

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
