First of all. Thank you in advance for everything on this website. I would have been absolutely lost without the information.
Here is my story. I’m a 42 year old man around 170 pounds. Just completed my last fitness test at 94.3%. About two months ago, I started to get the normal diabetic symptoms. Getting up to pee three times and extreme thirst. I even ate the snow off the hood of my car on a ride home one night. This was the start…a couple months ago.
Fast forward to three weeks ago. I finally had enough and bought a meter. Took a while to figure it out. My first read was 352. Went to the hospital as my primary care wouldn’t see me. They gave me some metformin and sent me home. I scheduled an appointment with an endo. During the endo meeting he told me I was 90% type 1 and only a 10% chance of being a type 2.
Results came back with no anti-bodies. So I guess type 2? Everything else was normal. Except for the A1C at 10.0?
Here are my concerns. I’ve been having the following: Massive Stomach pains, excessive sweating at night, outdoors…I sweat from the head like crazy. High/Mid back pain and the last weekend I was constipated. My stool is little lighter than normal. And I seem to belch more than often. I wake up at 2:30am every night.
They have me on gulipize. One before breakfast and dinner. We stopped the metformin as I thought that was the cause of the stomach pain.
I know that one here is a doctor, but does this seem normal? My father died of lung cancer at 45. I’m contemplating going to prompt care and paying for a CT scan out of pocket.
I’m just worried that the diabetes was caused by cancer. Scared for my family. What would you do?
1000 thanks in advance.
