I just had blood work done. I have elevated protein in my blood. It has risen since this time last year (a lot). My mom died with multiple myeloma. I remember when she was diagnosed that was one of the test she has done. Just in a little panic mode...I guess. I have noticed I have a lot of constipation, fatigue, loss of appetite, weight loss, I laugh because I can't remember anything, and always have a dehydrated feeling. I drink slushes at least twice a day. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis earlier this year. Need some advice to get out of this feeling. My mom had all these symptoms. I joked several months ago, that I smelled like my mom did when she was first diagnosed. Please help me.

It sounds like you might have kidney issues or diabetic. Have you been evaluated by a doctor about this?

1st off I'd say it's time to discuss your concerns with your PCP and see what further testing you need done. My husband's first diabetes symptoms were fatigue, constant urge to urinate, and extreme thirst. Perhaps try to avoid sugary drinks and sweets until you can discuss this with your dr, IE drink water when you're feeling thirsty. Anyone can buy a blood glucose monitor and strips if you're too curious to wait, normal should be between 70-140.

Good luck, I hope you are able to find answers and solutions quickly.
Diagnosed with SLE lupus October 2014.
