So I am FINALLY going to be seeing an endocrinologist after about FIVE years. I guess now that I am older people may actually start to take me seriously. Hopefully they will listen to me now that I'm 20 and not 15. |
My primary care physician truly believes there is something that is causing my atrial fibrillation. And I believe that as well. I'm just trying to figure out what that is.
I've been tested for low blood sugar before and suprisingly they said I do have hypoglycemia. This is rare for people who don't have diabetes. But then again, I'm 20 and have no known reason why I have atrial fibrillation, so I'm used to rare.
We have always checked my blood sugar since I was first sick in the sixth grade. Oddly enough, one night I was in atrial fibrillation and starving out of my mind, my parents decided to check it. My blood sugar actually dropped after I ate food. Pretty significantly too. All of my symptoms seem to point to an endocrinolgy disorder/dysfunction.
I'm looking forward to this appointment. Unfortunately, it's not until October.
