My 22 year old daughter has been to 5 different types of Doctors since January. Her symptoms are weakness, dizziness, shakes, vomiting, sweats easily. Since January she has been diagnosed with Vestibular Neuritis, 4 Kidney Stones and Acid Reflux, all of witch can cause these symptoms, however, with the medicine she is still not getting any better. She vomits about 3 times a week sometimes more, she's dizzy and weak everyday..... everyday....Between all the Doctors they did a MRI. EKG, ULTRASOUND, 2 kinds of BLOODWORK, ENDOSCOPY and she is scheduled for a CAT SCAN tomorrow. Please remember she is only 22 years young...My baby has been through enough....Even though she has had bloodwork and her blood sugar was 109 they said that was good, however I really feel it has something to do with her blood sugar, what should we do next? Please

blood sugar of 109 is within normal limits. fasting blood sugar of over 120 is indicative of diabetes. you can ask for a OGTT (oral glucose tolerance test) where she will drink so super sugary drink wait 10 hours and they will test her blood sugar. her symptoms don't match up with diabetes. the big symptoms are that she is almost thristy, always going to the bathroom, always hungry and eating but losing weight. i hope this helps.
