Customer Question
I have some symptoms...

I have some symptoms that I'm worried about

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes. I am diabetic 2, on insulin once a day, one synthroid pill per day (had thyroid taken out years ago). Since thanksgiving, urine has been dark orange, (yes I do drink water), and stools are grey or yellowish, no longer brown. Tiredness. Also, slow digestion. but when I went to urgent care they took a urine sample (dark orange) and told me there was no blood, just ketones, and told me I was starving myself! He (dr) gave me fruit cup and cookie and sent me home.

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

Allergic to penecillin (spelling?), itchy rash. synthroid daily

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

Humulin I take 30 units once a day

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.
