you should have a lab test for kidney, blood, urine etc. and show it to your doc.


Have you made another appointment with your Endocrinologist? What did he/she say?


Time to jump up and down at your doctors. Ask for an emergency appointment. walk in without your shoes on as the don't fit and have it out with your doctor.

let us know what happens.
