Congratulations on making an appointment with the doctor. This is a great step in the right direction.
Now, what you want to say to the doctor is that you want to 'rule out' medical causes for your anxiety and depression. Give him/her as concise an explanation of your symptoms as possible, but bring up the possibility of hyperinsulinimia.
There are a lot of things other than hyperinsulinimia that could organically cause depression and anxiety. Your doctor should know what they could be, but obvious ones would be low thyroid and other metabolic problems.
