    Anyway, my kidney screening comes back in the normal range, so it it isn't that. Whatever it is, I am probably going to have it for keeps.
    I am 63, very diabetic, and there ain't much more that they can do for me. But I will plug along anyhow, until the Lord comes back to get me.

    Indeed. Prayers upward bound.

    Sorry to hear that. Maybe Stratmaster's advice will shed new light and get you back on track.
    For me, surgery is the only other option. Been putting it off because I live in Mississippi. (!) Will have to have it done in Memphis.
    Keep us posted to see if it is the ketoacidosis.

Had a TON of various diagnosis, because I was sick to my stomach, in pain everywhere, violent dizzy spells, bad trouble breathing, heart racing/arrhythmia, extreme fatigue, blah blah blah. Turns out I don't have any of those various disorders they thought they identified... just had my endocrine system out of whack. I think some bad luck played into it as well... because my body seemed to straighten itself out every time right before my annual checkup with labs LOL. "Nope, nothing wrong here. Move along you hypochondriac you". Get you some comprehensive labs done next doctor visit, tell them your concerns. Check fasting blood sugar level, triglycerides, and for ketoacidosis. I also eat a LOT of fresh veggies now, and have given up bread, pasta, and rice. If you aren't already doing it, cook yourself up giant pans of sliced sweet onions, bell peppers, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, and toss in big handfuls of greens. Make it yummy, so you don't feel deprived: add in lots of garlic and a couple tablespoons of Presto roasted garlic n' onion sauce (it's next to the spaghetti sauce at your grocers'). .

    Cook up and spice a big mess of chicken or beef, and add it in. Very good type of cooking for us, very tasty, and sticks to a man's ribs. I cook 3 days worth at a time, varying the ingredients of course. Low glycemic is the key here to lowering that blood sugar. Be well my friend.
    If it is endocrine, the VA has not detected it, but they did not detect my peptic ulcer either. And I am not slamming the VA, doctors in general believe what they see in tests, and nothing else.

    I will try to keep that recipe in mind, it sounds great.

    Thanks Slippy. There has been a number of times in my life when prayer saved me, from death. And I can be melodramatic, but I have my reasons.

    OK Baglady, and thanks. But, I know that whatever it is, only prayer will bring it to light. At least for the doctors anyway.

    Memphis has some good hospitals and surgeons; and you are smart to go there, and skip anyone in Mississippi.
    I had surgery on my ankle, and I was lucky that Huntington WV, has an impressive surgeons group.
    Hamlet and King Lear are two of the best works of literature that there is. And in American elite universities, Shakespeare is being reviled, and that is a new evil.
    America cannot go on being free, when it is always taking the foundations out. If Shakespeare is the enemy, then I am the enemy too, because I love the guys works.
