Apologies for a longish post: I've been concerned about possible pancreas/gallbladder liver issues for a while because of rib pain; I went to see the doctor a couple of months ago and he diagnosed me with rib inflammation, said my liver and gall bladder seemed ok, but suggested I come back to get some blood work done.I was hoping to lose weight and get my sugars back to their usual levels after an extended period of weight gain and poor control; I haven't really done very well regarding weight loss (stuck at home, not much exercise etc), and although my sugars are a lot better, and my blood pressure is FAR better, I've only really been on track for the last month or so. Because of this, I am a bit reluctant to get an HbA1C or intravenous blood test done, because I don't want to be labelled badly diabetic, given a ton of meds etc, when I am getting back on track. I have good sugars for May, decent for April, poor for Feb, so I feel like another month or so might give me a more helpful result. Is this a valid line of thought, or a bit silly? It's complicated by the fact that I'm more concerned about my rib pains: if bloodwork can help me identify any liver and pancreas/ gallbladder issues that might be at play, then I think that might be more important, and just take the HbA1c as a reference before booking another test in 3 months or so. I'm sorry if this seems rambling or obvious- I'm just quite discombobulated about the whole deal, and anxiety has rendered me fairly hopeless in the logic and common sense departments!
