Hi. Sounds like she should get back to the doctor, or any competent doctor. This might be diabetes or med related - or it might be something completely unrelated. It's not a classic or typical issue.

 

A change in insulin and diet can take some tweaking and changes to get right. What are some examples of her blood sugar levels at the moment? Perhaps she is suffering from dangerously high blood sugar levels. This can really impact on the body in a number of ways. The final result of escalating blood sugars can be disastrous.

 

If that is the reason for these issues, it doesn't change the urgency to get to a doctor ASAP, just as if not more urgent. Good luck with it.

My daughter would get stomach pains and sometimes it was because she was high. But she had a biopsy done and she has Celiac disease as well, which is an intolerence to gluten (wheat,rye and barley) She didn't have the other symptoms of celiac disease. There was something that showed up in the blood tests, then the doctors proceeded to do the biopsy. Since the diet change, she has not complained of stomach aches.

I agree with Special 2109 - I too was dx with Celiac disease last October. The Gastroentorologist told me that Celiac is an AutoImmune disease just like Diabetes. He said that Diabetes, Celiac and Thyroidism are the 3 musketeers of AutoImmune diseases. Speak to your endocronologist about Celiac disease. A simple Anti-Transglutamase blood test will confirm the disease.

 

Good luck,
