    What does it Mean when a diabetic patient complain about a runny tummy and tummy ache

    • Hi Catherine, so sorry to hear you’re feeling ill! It could just be a tummy bug, or it could be related to your medication… What medication are you on? Best to ask your doctor for advice – we’re not medical specialists.
