Oh my gosh, Uff-da...do I know what you're talking about!
My PCP sent me to endo appx 2 mo after dx. Endo criticised me for EVERYTHING I was doing - 5 small meals every 2.5 hrs --said I should be able to go 24 hrs without eating (Huh? Why?)
Using oj for lows - "no no no -that's old school, you need to use glucose tabs". (Um, no, when I get low I'm too nauseated to eat 1 piece of chalk, let alone 4-6 it would've taken). But thanks smarty pants!
"Your DM is out of control". (WHAT!!! My 90 day avg was 85! Yes, I had some lows, but I was newly dx and just figuring it all out). [N why the hell haven't you even checked my A1C for so many months when my very 1st one was DkA in hospital months ago]?
No, I didn't say this to him. It was obvious he was so intimidated using computer that when I asked him a question his answer had NOTHING to do with my question. In fact, he was so glued to the computer that I'm sure he could never even pick me out in a lineup!
