I am currently 26 year old male.
On December 2018, I went to doctors after having a large bubble tea later after that day like 1-2 hours later my left side was bothering me. So i went to a walk in clinic 3-4 hours later and told the doctor, so he thought it may be kidney stones/gull bladder stones so he told me to pee in a cup. Afterwards the nurse told the doctor and they looked at me and told me they are concerned cause they found large traces of sugar in my urine. Which I thought couldnt it be the bubble tea i had earlier that day.
Doctor wanted me to do a blood test the next day blood H1AC was 6.5 which was >OR= 6.5 % Diabetes Mellitus.
|Glucose Fasting||HI||7.3||3.6 - 6.0||mmol/L|
|Fasting Glucose greater than or equal to 7.0|
mmol/L after an 8 hr fast can be used as a
provisional diagnosis of diabetes mellitus. If
asymptomatic, a repeat confirmation test using
Fasting Glucose, HbA1c, or 75g OGTT must be done.||||
|Hemoglobin A1C/Total Hemoglobin|HI|6.5|<6.0|%|
||CDA 2013 Guidelines:
Screening and Diagnosis:
<5.5 % Normal
5.5% - 5.9 % At risk
6.0% - 6.4 % Prediabetes
OR= 6.5 % Diabetes Mellitus||||
So the doctor told to do a 12 hour fast for Carbohydrate metabolism which showed high at 13.9 Diabetes Mellitus >or= 7.0 OR >or= 11.1.

So the doctor told me I have diabetes type 2, keep in mind back then I was 180lbs doctor told me to start excersizing and eat properly since injections or drugs is not needed at the time.
Three months later weighing at 154lbs
I did my test again my H1AC is now 5.4 [<5.5 % Normal ] which is normal now doctor was surprised. So he had me do a cholesterol test next. Results were:
Test 3 after three months
|Hours After Meal||20||Hours|

with abnormal liver function, the HDL-c result
may be different due to the presence of

|Non HDL Cholesterol||4.43||mmol/L|
||Non HDL-Cholesterol is not affected by the
fasting status of the patient.||||
||Consider the non HDL-C value as an alternate
lipid target if monitoring treatment in
intermediate or high risk patients.||||
So doctor said my cholesterol is now too high for a diabetic person and that I may have to rely on statin drugs for the rest of my life if it doesn’t go down naturally within three months. I am assuming my cholesterol was so high is cause I’ve ate “hot rods” which is high in cholesterol a few days back which I felt guilty about. I was suppose to go back to the doctors like last month to see if my cholesterol went down or not but im nervous cause I don’t want to rely on statin’s for the rest of my life.
On the June 30th, 2019, I went to a different walk in clinic cause my sides felt pressure and the doctor said theres nothing wrong cause after being diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 for 7 months I still have not fully gotten over it and been having lots of anxiety thinking every thing is going wrong with my body so that I may have imagined the weird feeling on my sides. I told this walk in doctor that my blood sugar went from 6.5 to 5.4 within three months and she was surprised and said “Im wondering if you actually do have diabetes or not?”
What should I do? Should I go to another doctor and have them do a blood sugar test on me for diabetes ? or should I just accept the first walk in doctor’s results and go check for my cholesterol and hope for the best? I’m filled with anxiety for the past 7 months and i don’t know how to accept and move on. I’ve been looking around for advice and I keep telling myself try to live life one day at a time focus on the present not on the past and the future is filled with uncertainty so focus on what I can do today.
Side info: Past two days been having soft poop/broken poop in the morning only and already having anxiety that its cancer.
