    Hey everyone...
    So i went to my diabetic doctor yesterday and it kinda didn't go to well .... My blood sugars are out of control because im not able to eat correctly with this stomach issue. So my A1c is 8.8 :( ... and I have lost another 5 pounds in two weeks. Another thing we found out that the stomach issue is not Celiac disease and so I have a appointment with a stomach specialist on Feb. 18th I'm really scared to go to the specialist because my mom said they might have to put a scope down my throat to figure out whats going on.
    So yeah thats the update... :cwds:

    Awww I'm so sorry you're going through all of this Molly :(. I'm wondering if you could have H. Pylori. It's a bacteria in your stomach, some people carry it, some don't. Those that do sometimes have flare-ups like an ulcer. My cousin is a carrier of it, and when hers acts up she's in pain, and (this is kinda gross) she throws up blood. WHen they found it, she was on a lot of meds for awhile to keep it at bay. Now she only has to take them if it starts acting up a lot. Good Luck!

    I was tested for H. pylori it was one of the first things i was tested for and it came back negative.... and its still a possibility that i have an ulcer thats the one thing they haven't ruled out yet....

    Was your endo understanding about it? Good luck with the new appointment. I've done the whole scope thing 2 or 3 times- bring something to distract yourself like an ipod or favorite stuffed animal. I'll continue to pray for you and your doctors.
