    Good luck tomorrow, and we do produce too much insulin and the effects are not very nice!

    Hello, MRI is negative for pancreatic cancer and insulinomas. Upper GI next week. Happy about MRI. Endoscopic ultrasound under discussion, will depend on results from upper GI Still no idea why nausea after carbs... But I feel less doomed now :) excellent docs really good. Testing me also for auto immune conditions.... Thanks to all for your support. Hypos will be discussed with endo - things are moving

    That's brilliant @Alicki!

    Did say that it's better to know, and it's really good news about the test results.
    It does get better in the diagnosis.
    It just takes time!

    Next test - gastroscopy next Friday. Has anyone ever been put to sleep for this procedure? I'm going to have to. I didn't feel like telling my employer but I know there's another test just after this one so don't want to lie.. Any opinions on the matter?

    Morning Alicki. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who has had this procedure so cannot advise I'm afraid. If your Doc has advised its best for you to be put to sleep, then I would just go with it personally. As for telling your employer, my opinion is honesty is the best policy. I guess it depends how understanding your employer is?

    Your weight loss is quite dramatic. I lost around 6.5 kilos in a similar amount of time. Your carb reduction, anxiety and stress will all be contributing. They did in my case! My weight eventually stopped dropping off and levelled out for a while before very slowly going back up. It's taken me about 9 months to put 2 kilos back on. Try not to worry too much, it might make it worse. If you're concerned, speak to your Doctor about it.

    I postponed my appointment as I want to get a bit more data (or evidence!) from my Libra beforehand. I also think my hormones and monthly cycle affect my bs levels and RH control so I'm hoping this might show in the first full month of use.

    Good luck next Friday. Let us know how it goes x

    The gastroscopy went Well, apparently no major issues. Just waiting on biopsy results. I think tis the pancreas but we needed to clear the gastro side before going further into diagnostics procédures. I Want an endoscopic ultrasound but not sure

    I will have a look at my pm status, I'm having difficulties with a few things on the site.

    Have you done anything that would make you this way?
    Have you tried to pm @ @Brunneria. She is so good at sorting these sort of things out?
