the docs said that i could have diabetes... i was prediabetic before, but the other docs never cared much. the doctor looked at a few things on me and apparently, its symptoms of diabetes; skin tags, discoloration from my underarms.
he drew some blood and had me make an appointment (b/c of the blood test results). i'm scared for that. as of now, i'm not on any meds for the diabetes, but in the mean time- is tehre anything i can do to stop the diabetes from getting worse? which food should i be eating, avoiding, etc?
Also-- i'm REALLY pissed at my normal/regular doctors. ontop of diabetes, i had my blood pressure checked. i get it checked every time i'm in the doctor's office... i check it for fun at teh stores. the docs always say that its normal, the stores place me at hypertension 1/prehypertension.... its been like that for the last 3+ YEARS! i've asked the doctors if thats okay--- my numbers being off, the store's placing me there... etc... they all said it was fine, the reading there was fine.
this new doctor; he really said "i dont care what they said it was here"... he wanted to know about the ones in the store. and then put me on blood pressure meds.
it makes me worried; what other things do i have going on inside of me, that i've had checked otu before- that the doctors said was 'fine' and just overlooked?
i just feel so helpless now. =/
