This is the second doctor. When I had this "discussion" with the first GP, I got a very nasty reply. This doctor is my GP, who first prescribed me both basal and bolus, so I hoped that she would do the same for him.
I don't know how to screen for a doctor who will prescribe fast acting. When I call and talk to the office/nurse they say that we would just have to come in, have him start as our doctor, and then see what he thinks.
All the nurses at the ER were saying behind the curtain that this is crazy. But when the ER doctor saw him, he refused to prescribe insulin because that's up to my husband's GP. Basically he wouldn't do anything that would go against or make his doctor look bad.
I totally get how insulin works. After watching me for a year, my husband gets it to. But I am at a loss for how to find a doctor who does get it, and will give us an appointment in less than 3 months.
My next endo appointment is in 1.5 months, maybe he can take that? My husband isn't willing to go against doctors orders and take insulin without the prescription.
