OK, this is kind of disturbing. Do doctors check your Twitter account before your visit? OK, this is kind of disturbing. Do doctors check your Twitter account before your visit?

Hey, if employers are doing it, why not doctors?

Still, it kind of feels like a privacy invasion...maybe because of the whole medical right to privacy thing, it just feels like it should work the other way around, too.

Apparently, though, it doesn't. If you post it, they can read it and as Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie Douthit found out--anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of's office.

The reality star is currently pregnant and has a high-risk pregnancy due to her diabetes, but when she tried to get in to see the diabetic specialist, she claims she was turned away because of what she had posted on her Twitter account.

"I have to see a diabetic specialists along with a regular baby doctor... My first visit I was sick and running a little late and told them I wasnt feeling good and the lady said 'well your Twitter says your going to the fair tonight so your lying' so I ignore it and go on to tell her I have a lot of trouble with my disease and I eat VERY healthy and still have to take a lot of insulin and her reply was 'I don't believe that,'" Mackenzie posted on Facebook (via Starcasm). "I asked her to please just help me out with my disease like a doctor should and please stop stalking my fb and twitter. She than [sic] starts yelling at me along with three others in the background saying they can look at my social media if they want."

When her mom tried to call to inquire about the situation, she was reportedly hung up on and Mackenzie was later informed that the office had decided to drop her as a patient.

"Here I am about to pop and having the worst blood sugars not knowing if my daughter is gonna be ok because they did this and I have no diabetic care. Anyways please pray for me and baby girl," she vented on Facebook.
