I'm 37
female
I use sensosydone

I see

sounds like you are worried about diabetes

simple blood tests for fasting AM sugar levels and hemoglobin a1c levels can tell if you have diabetes

do you have a doctor you can see who can do some blood testing for you?

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.
