"I second Trudy's Idea with Celiac Disease.
If Celiac can be ruled out then the "Pancreatic Enzyme Deficiency" that has been mentioned here is another candidate. Is sounds dramatic but the deficiency can be treated with one pill of…"
"Hi CBuckner. The symptoms described by the OP can also be the symptoms of Celiac Disease. Diabetes and Celiac often go together (I have Type 1 and Celiac); it might be worth getting the test for your daughter. Sometimes the test for Celiac shows a…"
"My 9 year old daughter has stomach pains a lot, I mean A LOT and yet her diabetes clinic says that this can't be related to her diabetes because her numbers don't stay crazy high for long periods of time, and that she has not had diabetes…"
"This was my biggest issue with weed. I found a few methods of reducing this:
1. VAPORIZE. I prefer to vaporize 99.9% of the time. Mostly because I do not want the negative health effects of inhaling burning plant matter. If you are a regular user…"
"I have had a lot of issues with the novo nordisk pens giving less than accurate doses. I spent three weeks thinking I was going nuts, when really my pen was giving me less than half the dose I was entering. I switched to syringes to remedy this.…"
"I believe you should think and research before doing anything. In particular you should try to find out if there have been any other complaints about inappropriate actions.

"That's really interesting. I mean yes I can understand the whole audience thing, but it's interesting a practioner would leave themselves open for the potential of someone saying something inappropriate happened. It's must much easier…"
"I think for women, I know from personal experience. I'd MUCH rather go to the Ob/Gyn for the lady part examinations, and on my own personal experience even though they aren't FUN examinations, every Gyn male or female I've been to has…"
"Interesting you should say that about Male's not getting this exam done unless it is done at the time of initial screening. I remember that i read somewhere that diabetic males tend to have a greater issue with swollen testicles.
Now what is…"
"Oh I can assure you it's NEVER a fun experience. Nothing I enjoy more than going to get the lady parts checked out. And yes it is certainly part of a thorough examination, but usually reserved more for yearly physicals/Gyn type exams. If it had…"
"I don't recall ever feeling anything but uncomfortable while standing in front of a doctor with pants down and them fondling my parts. I still think this is normal. Maybe he was thorough, maybe he was old school... But it is not beyond any…"
"I'm most definitely not saying she shouldn't report it. That's her decision and I agree that it's not good to feel uncomfortable with a dr under any circumstances.
I am merely pointing out that, despite the OP, you and many…"
"But we aren't talking YEARS ago, this happened THREE years ago. I just think as a LONG time diabetic, who was diganosed when I was 10 and am now almost 40. This was strange. A simple medical history such as age of menstruation, how regular are…"
"Don't you think that it being a standard practice in a major hospital for many years means that there is probably a medical basis? Perhaps it was off base for current practices but WAY off base - I don't think so.
The opinion of a…"
