    I don't know for sure, but I would assume that it's because carrots don't have a high starch content, whereas most root veggies (like potatoes and such) have a lot of starch, which your body converts to sugar.

    It's might be in your best interest to go to the welfare office and plead your case. They may be able to see that you get the medical help you need. If not, let them know you will be back to apply for assistance when you're too weak to work.

    As far as exercise is concerned, have you considered swimming or water aerobics? It's easy on your joints but you still get the benefit of the cardio and muscle workout.

    How much would it cost to see a specialist? In Canada these are costs no one has a clue about because of our medical coverage.

    Frlsgirl, I hadn't thought about water aerobics. I learned to swim almost before I learned to walk, so that would be something I could definitely do. I'll have to check into it at the Y.

    Saddlebag, I don't know how much it'd cost to see a specialist, but if the cost for seeing a regular doctor is any indication, it's upwards of $200+ per visit.

    Maybe he would consult you? Not all are crazy expensive

    The weight is obviously a problem, but the blood flow is quite serious regardless of you fitness or diet. I agree with most posts in that you have to go beyond a general practitioner and see a specialist........and soon.
    Speak to your parents, your church or anyone else who may be able to help you financially.

    This sounds serious and it's not time for amateur hour.

    All the best.

    Just to give you an idea....when I was between jobs and was up for my annual gyn visit, it cost me $335 for the visit, plus another $45 for the Pap smear. It was a cruddy timing of events where I quit one job and started another. The due date for my visit was in the middle and the old insurance would not cover a visit until after the due date and the new one wouldn't have started yet. So I paid for the exam and my gyn gave me sample bc packs to ride me over until my new insurance kicked in.

    This is all the more reason to insist on getting a Pap smear and a pelvic ultrasound. Many docs will lower thw cost an d allow payment plans.
