For the past couple of months, I have been experiencing stomach / midsection pains. I know I should not have put it off this long. However, if you resided in Cambodia, you would know why I did. After visiting a hospital as a patient, you have a better chance leaving dead, than you do alive. It finally got to a point where the pain would not subside. So I had no choice but to seek medical attention. This was a couple of days ago. We made an appointment to see a former landlord, who runs a medical clinic here. He practices medicine. Is he a licensed practioner? Honestly, I have no idea. I have never asked. With the doubling over I was doing at the time, I figured he would either help me, or kill me. I didn't care which at that point. He gave me a shot, a pain killer. He then took a bit of blood to test. After receiving the results, he told me I am a diabetic. But, he had not mentioned fasting 12 hours prior to a blood test. Shouldn't that be the case? Either way, the results are below for my stomach issue, and blood sugar. I am hoping the results are seriously scewed due to not fasting. I have fastest overnight and will go directly to the lab today, to request another blood test. If you are a diabetic, or otherwise feel qualified to answer, could you offer input here, please? Truthfully, I am scared. Not that it makes a difference, but, I am 52, not 54. He has addressed the gastro problem. I am on meds for it now.
