you should have done the baseline investigations first. you are stating about a varied medical problem. so simply based on this history it is difficult to comment on. you should mention about her glycemic control. pain in right flank may be due to appendicitis also. so it is important to assess the patient clinically. an abdominal ultrasound may also be helpful. consult your doctor.
