I cant seem to grasp my blood sugar levels, Every doctor I go to has a different idea, from going to a pump, to stopping and changing insulin, I dont get it. Iam off to a doctor appt today to see about abdominal pain, sleepy, and nausea, I was given an ultra sound to see if it was gall bladder and it wasnt, so now what?? another copay and still feel bad. I feel worse after I eat. I seriously dont know what the heck is going on. have any of you had problems like this. I am going for a colonospy next to see if that is a problem, because Iam not regular at all in the bowels area

I am suffering from many of the same symptoms as you discribed. I am in and out of the hospital if I'm lucky I make it two weeks before I start puking. I have been tested for everything and haven't found much out. I do have gastroparesis and gurd and ibs but something is still causing me to get sick. I have been threw the colonoscopy and scope but still they can't find anything. I hope they find something with you.

Here's another option: had similar symptoms and did have gall stones, but found the underlying cause was gluten intolerance which complicated all the other issues. Have gone gluten free for several months now, have better BG control, passed the stones, no flattulence or burping, and much more energy. This one, you almost have to check out for yourself by avoiding ALL wheat, rye, barley, and oats. It takes a little getting used to, but, if this is the cause, it's well worth the effort.

Hi, sorry for the issues. I see on your profile that you are type 1 and haven't been to the drs as you say for a long time. I'm not sure what time frame you are talking about? Also, what insulins do you use and how long have you been type 1? I have always been type 1 and have had alot of problems due to diabetes. I have stomach troubles as well, same as symptoms as you and more. I have gastroperesis and though it is rare to have it is something you could be dealing with. Only about 5% of diabetics develope it and it can be brought on by several things. I also suffer from GERD, and have had the colonoscopy and endoscopy done, they don't hurt and you'll be asleep, and it is done real fast.

Hope everything works out ok for you and you are able to get some relief.
