My doctor has done a lot of tests and admits that I have something, potentially serious, but that he has no idea. We continue to do tests, but although my doctor is a nice man, I am on free public health care, so, ya know.
I was diagnosed with adult onset type 1 diabetes 16 months ago. My endo says my situation is most likely not diabetes related though. here are my symptoms. I am 32 years old, male and I have bad seasonal allergies and tendonitus, although neither fast is probably relevant, I figured I'd mention it.
Frequent urination, up to 20 times a day. often I feel the urge to go but then little comes out.
Slightly enlarged prostate.
High potassium in my blood
slightly low white cell count
vitamin d deficiency
My doctor told me he tested for all the immediately dangerous stuff and didn't find anything. He prescribed me some prostate medication but due to my age and the fact that the other symptoms don't seem to totally jive, he suspects it isn't a typical enlarged prostate and is just prescribing the prostate medication to see if it helps. He is testing for prostate cancer this week and discussing referring me to a urinologist.
I agree that the symptoms seem like they are probably some uncommon condition. I know of no family history with any sort of prostate issues. The vitamin D deficiency and photo sensitive eyes may possibly just be diabetes damage. I am not sure what symptoms are related to this new, undiagnosed thing and which are just general lack of health caused by my type 1 diabetes.
If anyone had any theories on what direction to go in, what sort of realm of condition I might be in or even what ball park of specialist I should consult, my doctor is basically putting his hands in the air and saying "I don't know, weird!" and that is just not an awesome response.
