adie.....I totally had this gigantic message about my battle and ownership of the type 1 diabetes typed up but the server would not have it. If you have those sugar levels under control. If your yearly A1C is good, you check your sugar level regularly, etc, etc....then work something out with your endo. No reason to tell her that the system is horrible...just explain your situation. If your readings are good when you do see her....then keep up doing what you are doing, be aware of the fluctuations in symptoms(because now my low levels make me sleepy and my high levels make me sweaty),...then keep doing what you are doing...your doc knows the system is bad. Until the system requires patients to adhere to doctors orders and doctors to treat the illness and not the symptoms, it is going to be messed up
I'm sorry but you don't know me or anything about my "ownership" of my diabetes. You are also not aware of the experiences I've had with various care providers and so when I voice them to my endo it's not just to bitch, it's for a reason. I know how to manage my disease but thanks for the refresher course.
Also, yearly a1C? I have my a1C checked every three months when I can afford it.
I'm sure your intentions are good but as you know, diabetes is a personal disease and the relationship with one's doctors is very personal. I don't appreciate other people questioning the way I handle my own situation. It comes across as condescending and I really bristle at condescension.
