Severe stomach pain, Ketoacidosis?

Patient

Q: RE: ketoacidois.
I have been diagnosed with Ketoacidosis. I am on Metformin and Lyrica. I'm suppose to be on insulin and be testing sugar. The clinic I went to was not clear on testing and what levels should be, so I don't test. I am waiting on my insulin shots (free thru drug co.). For 3 days I have been having really bad stomach pain (top to bottom), pain I have never felt. It 's up and down. I have also been told several years ago, I may have pancreatitis? My mother died of stomach cancer in her seventies. I do not have the money or ins to go to the emergency room. Can you help me? I'm male, 49 yrs old, walk 6 days a week, diet controlled up and down. Sincerely, Peter Banfield
