Hi these questions I will be asking ar for a good friend and coworker of mine that I have been working with for over 20 years. She is morbidly obese and turned 50 this year. She had never seem to experience any health problems until early in September. She started having episodes where she felt cold sweats, dizziness, arm pain, heartburn, backache and jaw pain.. I am mediately assumed they were heart related problems and attempted to call 911.. it was then that I realize she had never been to a doctor and became very insulted that I would even suggest calling 911.. i've seen her have two major episodes like this that scared me both times she recovered and felt better the next day. Within the following months she started having daily low-grade headache's, severe scalp itch, pain in her foot, pain in her knee, nausea almost every day, she talks of sleepless nights, fatigue, thirsty, thrush, very hungry and has mentioned foamy Urine once .. i'm pretty sure she is diabetic but undiagnosed and untreated..my question is she doesn't go to the bathroom at all while she is at work.. most diabetics urinate a lot.. could kidney disease be the reason she doesn't urinate? All of her symptoms seem to come and go they might last a few days but nothing seems to last a very long time except for the nausea and heartburn..just when I think something might send her to the ER she seems to be better the next day nothing stops her from coming to work bright and early in the morning even though some days she is very moody..I would just like an opinion as to what somebody thinks she might have.. if I have to do an intervention I will..but insulting her If she's ok is not in my nature
