My name is Megan. I am married and have a 12 month old daughter. I have a thyroid problem (hypo) and now a newly diabetic (had gestational diabetes and had pre diabetes). Well I went to the urgent care at the hospital yesterday. I thought I had either an yeast infection or UTI infection. Well they ran test and it was negative for both. It burns to pee (sorry tmi) and I feel so uncomfortable down there (I can tell its irritated and swollen). They also did a pregnancy test (blood test) because I was 2 days late. Well even that came back negative. They did a pelvic exam and she told me that everything looked good. She also commented that there is no signs of you starting anytime soon. Ugh hated that answer lol. Any ways I am usually on time. The only time I am late or dont start is when I am pregnant! Well they also found alot of glucose in my urine. Well I been sick with the cold and I ate alot the day before bc I had the munchies. So they checked how much and the test said it was 1000. Which your suppose to have none in your urine so they tested my blood sugar and it was 232. So they are saying I am a diabetic now. But me being sick and eating alot the day before would make my blood sugar be high. But I am not arguing because I need to be on some kind of diet and exercise plan. They are going to help me and my insurance will pay all of it! Any ways they said the reason why I could feel burning when I urinate is bc of all of the glucose in my urine. I am now on a strict diet. I can only have alot of protein, vegetables, and little fruits. No SUGARS at all! Well so far today the burning and the uncomfortableness is completely gone... woo hoo! I still have to see a doctor tomorrow. Well I still have no period or any signs of it! I am getting alot clear cervix mucus (which I got it when I was pregnant). I am still having some pregnancy symptoms.... fatigue, dizziness, sore boobs, and always hungry and etc.... there are more! So I have no clue whats going on.... my doctor said diabetes usually don't delay your period. Do you think I still could be? Is it possible it would be hard to detect it in my blood since at the time my blood sugar was high... what is your opinion on this situation....
I am certainly no expert in this, but thought I'd post since there hasnt been a reply yet.
Current blood pg tests detect at extremely low levels so it should have been + if you are pregnant. However, it wouldnt be the first time a lab result has been mixed up! It wouldnt hurt to try a very sensitive test in a few days if you dont start.
BTW they thought I had diabetes a year and half ago, but the second test came back negative, I always get funny test results for everything!
Good luck, hope you get it sorted
