Hello from JA

I am Dr. Thomas, board certified in internal medicine and integrative medicine, so I can cover about any question you might have, as well as your follow up questions. Use reply to expert at any time you need to.

The other expert has opted out.

You sugars clearly are not controlled well at all, and monitoring and maimization oftherapy is needed.

You can not stay off medication at this point.

The mought ulcers..have they been tested...swabbed for the lab?
