A visit to the doctor led to a shocking discovery for one North Carolina woman.

Kristina Rodriguez had blood work done after worries that her iron was low. When she picked up her medical chart, there it was - a so called "medical problem" listed by her doctor as "lesbianism."

Rodriguez says her doctors told her lesbianism was listed as a medical problem to protect her from being offended.

However, the hospital released a statement saying "lesbianism" is not an appropriate clinical diagnosis, and they are investigating the issue.
