I get hypo and hyperglycemia due to my liver, I have glycogen storage disease and metabolic problems, as well as prediabetes. My rib cage gets pushed out from my liver swelling, they should be able to feel that by palpation, and also from bloating from my messed up gi tract. Prilosec has helped me and I will likely be on it for the rest of my life.
Metformin was a life saver for me and straightened out my hyper and hypoglycemia, but they have to be sure its the right med for you or it could make your hypoglycemia worse. They need to look a little deeper into it. IF you find you have "fatty liver" you really need a consult with a really good hepatologist who is up on current treatments. Not only cn they stop damage in its tracks and keep the fatty liver from progressing to cirrhosis, but they can straighten out your sugar and bloodpressure if it is bouncing around too, as well as helping you get on the right type of diet for your condition.
I hope they do an ultrasound andfind out what is wrong. Do you have copies of your recent liver bloodwork? It mght be worth checking. Some docs don't put together slight increases with blood sugar problems and realize it could be fatty liver.
I hope you keep doing well and they figure you out soon. Take care and if you feel really bad, go to the ER at least most hospitals have some form of free low income financial assistance. If the abdominal pain is bad, they may do a ct scan or something and then they can find out what is wrong. I've been in your position and it is dfficult. I hope you get ssi or disability or medicaid or something soon.
