I had a fasting blood work done on myself this past Monday morning.
The good news is that my thyroid levels are good; she told me to keep taking the medicine at the same dose.
They hadn’t received any numbers back on my blood sugar testing.
The bad news is that as far as the urine testing, there was a lot of protein and blood and ketones being dumped.
She is sending me to a Nephrologist (spelling?) to get my kidneys checked out. They didn’t say it was because of diabetes but what else could be causing me to dump those things into my urine? I didn’t get to speak directly with the doctor but her nurse.
I expect a call today or tomorrow about the blood sugar testing.
This is really starting to worry me
Anyone have any ideas on whether it’s because of diabetes or what else it could be? DH said it could be something as simple as a kidney infection….
