Does diabetes cause soreness below ribs on the right side?
User rating for this question
I am having a soreness in the area below my ribs on the right side. I have type II diabetes and am currently taking Metformin 2000mgm daily, also medication for triglycerites, and effexor. For the past few months my blood sugar has been climbing. I am not fasting between 180 and 200. Could this soreness on my right side have anything to do with my diabetes being so high?
