I want to thank everyone for their replies~ I'm trying to get things under control. I have new info & am looking for a new doctor~ Should say doctor's. Plus trying to get into Mayo still. This all stared 1999 to 2000. It's pinpointing to a mold as my symptoms were same as 4 others where I worked. But went un treated properly & not right doc for 2 yrs. So am hoping~
Thank you Aurga for your reply so sorry to all it's taken so long to reply more.
Yes am still looking for new doctors. I want & need to go to Mayo so that is my ultimate goal as so many complex probs. Need someone to look at big picture as to why domino effect to each new ailment. I have auto immune issues. So I hope to get there soon.
Hi Deb~ Thank you~ Yes I need a referral for Mayo but my primary has been out for months now. & I had some lap & robotic surgery 2 months ago on abdomen. I am looking for new doctors now. As my platelet's are way down & I'm not healing properly. I had an infection at the Lap area of belly. So been on antibiotics 2 rounds. Now the 4 inches of swelling is starting to go down. I haven't been able to walk much for till just this last wk 1/2. So am trying~ Thanks! & DittoView Thread
It was straight novolog. But since have stopped it & on Levimere 1 a day now 25 U. Thank you for your reply~ Yes I have gone to 3 different docs but all in the Watsons clinic umbrella here. So I am getting out of there & looking for some good doctors~ Thanks Yes good idea will cut back on carbs more. I need to omit them for awhile. Thank youView Thread
I just read your post again~ I want to thank you for your time to respond~ In short now my numbers are doing much better now that I'm on Levimere insulin 1 a day. nothing else. I have & do eat well. & watch my carbs. That is interesting as I wanted to go on Lavast & doc gave me sample of Levimre. I looked & is way different. I have had abdomen surgery 2 months ago but am healing extremely slow & for some read on my Platelets are WAY love 94. I know 140 is normal & above. I stopped taking any anti inflammatory. As far as exercise no, really none at all. This is due to my lower back & now recovery. Am restricted. They do want me to start on phys Ther~ I am unable to sleep right now so is making matters worse. I do take ambien which works great. But just can't sleep more than 1 to 3 hrs. I start to go into ream sleep & wake right up, very strange. I know am a mess. I need to find better doctors. My A1C was at 5.7 yr. Without any meds. So I guess lack of exercise has really taken toll. I just noticed you take your Lantus in the morning? WOW the docs seen3 now all say in eve & go to bed. That doesn't make sense as then no exercise! I thought about this other day so am switching tomorrow morning . Makes much more sense. Thank you. I want to be put on Lantus. I think it just might work better. I'm on 25U now.
Please help. I was starting to get my numbers down & I went in & my doc I don't trust said no your supposed to be on the 70/30 mix. You think should of caught this before when called in? Anyway I was doing 30units niow he has me on 15 units 2 a day. Just started last night & first thius morning is in 377!!!!! I was in 100 to 200! I am really pissed. WTF? Does this doc know what the heck??????? & what about new pen Lanscus I thinl is name, what to do?View Thread
Please help with some info. I went & saw a Endo doc . My C-peptide test results are 4.7. They are not worried or care to do anything but keep me on a sample pack of Nevolog flex pen reg fast acting. My BS's are now 200 3oo, after a month! Shouldn't I be on long acting? As my number are not doing what they should with great diet and watching every carb I eat and no sugars. My vision is so bad prescriptions with bifocals I need magnify glass. I have called doctor with no results. Will see me on 30th. This was 2 wks ago. Any advise? I remember while I was in hospiutal my levels went up due to steriods. So they gave me according to how many units over. Wouldn't it be same here? and if Im at b4 meal at 91 do I still need a shot? Thank youView Thread
Hi ~ I had an appointment with the Endo doctor & next one is 30th. He doesn't see any need to see me before then. I was wondering about the lunch time. Strangly the last 3 days my BS have gone down into 198 area for ONLY about 2 hrs. Then its back in 200 to 300 again. I did call the office back to reschedule but there are no openings. also. He got back to me & said if I have any more problems set up with Diabetes counslor. What a crock. Yes I am a pusher & fighter & have a hard time excepting no. When I know I maybe on wrong meds. It says right in pamphlet that it is Recommended to be used with long acting insulin~ I agree 100 %! You have to be your own advocate!!!! !2 yrs worth of trying to trust docs leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I will say docs in Colorado are 99.99 % better and compassionate along with getting in there to get results.
Thats a great idea!!!!! I will call Humanna today for a referral to try & get into Mayo. Thank you. Didn't think of that one.
Yes it does help. I am also real new to this site. Am trying to learn to get around..
I have PPO insurance so no referral needed. But If it willl help will ask for a referral. I am so sick & tired of being sick & tired & in pain. Im getting scared at my age how my system is shutting down persay. I saw a GI yesterday. They are doing a upper GI since its been 4 yrs. Then they are doing another liver biopsy which has been 2004 I believe. My SGOTs are off the roof again as in 2000 they were high200 to 300 also. He also yesterday took 10 vials of blood for liver tests and such. I had to ask for a UV as my primary new one or any other had done it. Am happy over that one.
I just want to be fixed & thinking Mayo is the next best thing? The GI doc yesterday I liked! Real nice & listened. Cute too.. plus. Now will wait for results. If like Colorado will get all results & not know what to do with them. I know is hard to get into Mayo. Will try harder to get referral. Thanks. What do we do when even walking makes my feet weel? Thats like I am out shopping and just walking in 3 different stores am in so much pain! Wow. What else do you have going on?
It was nice to hear from you. It helps me know am not alone in this. Sincerely, DeeView Thread
Its novolog reg fast acting~ yes I eat lunch. Than you. I write a letter to mayo clinic to try & get in ~ I hope to hear good news. That is what I thought about sliding scale of insulin. I feel he just doesn't care. They said if any wuestions ask the diaticin educator who works with doc to get me on right meds. Then what is doc good for? I ask myself...... Thank you for your helpView Thread
