  1. I recently had a complete metabolic panel that anemia and low kidney function numbers. If my levels start to rise as the anemia gets corrected, is there a risk that the rising levels will show further kidney damage? (15 Jul 2014)

  2. To stop fainting episodes when menstruating, my daughter was put on an oral contraceptive, which causes high blood sugars and weight gain. Is this a common phenomenon? Is there any other way to alleviate severe menstrual symptoms? And, are there long term hazards of being on the pill too long? (15 Jul 2014)

  3. My daughter is going to Europe. What apps are there for her to use for carbohydrate counting? Is there an app to convert the measurements, whatever they are, to grams? (15 Jul 2014)

  4. Because she has been lethargic and not herself, I checked my daughter's blood sugars several times recently. She has been as high as 200 mg/dl [11.1 mmol/l]. The doctor did not check her blood sugar, blamed hormones for her lethargy. Should I consider taking her to the Emergency Room? (11 Jul 2014)
