I see medical school professors at two different universities and three doctors in private practice.
The medical school doctors are all super busy but I have much better communication since they switched to lots of e-mails.
I sent my food log and BS readings for the last two weeks to my endocinologist today. He has already sent me an e-mail response. There is no way a busy endocrinologist could see every patient every two weeks but he can review my logs that frequently.
I see him in person and have an A1c every 90 days.View Thread
I am curious about something. What exactly would it take for you to believe you do not have diabetes? It seems no matter what anyone (doctor or lay person) says to you, you remain convinced you have diabetes.
So, what could a doctor say to you which would convince you that you do not have diabetes?
MSU - I understand what you are saying. We have some patients on my organ transplant wait list who seem to have more issues than just a failing liver. I am in a support group at my transplant clinic. We spend a lot of time talking about folks who desperately want to be DXed with something serious. The psychologist who runs our support group says this is fairly common among folks which certain issues and a classic sign is these patients refuse to have the definitive tests which would say they do not have a failing organ and do tons of research which is not quite but almost on the mark.
This poster has had quite a few posters suggest he needs a simple AIc test - not a glucose test. To my knowledge he has ignored this suggestion repeatedly since the results are definitive one way or the other..View Thread
