Clueless Caller: Yeah, I was at home the other day and I noticed that my vision got a little blurry but then went away. Yesterday I was reading a book and all of a sudden I could not make out any of the words, not from blurry vision, but I just couldn't put them together in my head right. I take blah,blah,blah, and blah blah blah, metformin but I am not diabetic, and blah, blah blah...Today I woke up and I have been really shaky. I have not been eating well for the past couple of days because I have IBS that was diagnosed a few days ago so I haven't really had an appetite. (yes, all of this was said before I could ask her what I could help her with.)
Me: Why are you on Metformin if your not diabetic?
Clueless Caller: Oh, well, because I am close but not really a diabetic.
Me: OK, what have your blood sugars been running at home? Do you check your blood sugar?
Clueless Caller: Well, no because they are always good. Should I come in and be seen?
Me: Well if you are having blurry vision, shakiness and changes in your vision, you should probably have someone else drive you.
Clueless Caller: Oh no I'll just go ahead and drive myself.
