Recent complications have made me suspect that I may be an undiagnosed diabetic. I have one week to go before having blood tests done and I am wondering if being on a near-zero carb diet is dangerous, but I had to take a one-shot shock treatment dose of antibiotics yesterday because of a burning sensation in the urethra (no, I haven’t been unfaithful).
I also started having a (not painful) “leaky faucet” about a month ago, but I am not sure if my low-carb diet was the factor that activated the infection.
(As for the leaky faucet, I am wondering if it is related to post-vasectomy complications. It is less important after ejaculations but gets back within 3 days. Never felt that way before the V.)
Recap: I only had gastros 2 times in my life before having a major one in February of this year. It took 2 weeks to get back to ‘normal’. 2 weeks ago I started having blood in my stool, and I found out I was feeling irritated between the cheeks at the end of the day.
I saw a doctor, who said it was probably mucus coming out when I farted (no visual traces of anything, just irritation at the end of the day), and he gave me a ticket for a colonoscopy (in June).
I suspected some yeast problems (Candida Albicans), so I started near-zero Candida-killer diet a week and a half ago. For the first time in months, stools were back to normal.
Then yesterday I got a burning sensation in the urethra, a week after being on the near-zero carb diet.
Could this be diabetes related? My energy is constant, not really hungry with all the vegetables and chicken/turkey I am eating. Have been overweight since I was 8 years old and wondering if it is catching up with me now. Currently +/- 12% bodyfat. Lost 5 pounds in the last week (probably water retention in the gut).
Suggestions? Thanks in advance!
