Hi. I am a type 1 diabetic and have been so for the last 15 years.. I just joined this group because i am hoping that someone else out there has the same struggles that i do.. I know my body pretty well and yet my doctors dont want to listen to me about anything i tell them.. either they dont believe my blood sugars can be what they are and i can retain consiousness, they routinely drop to the 20's or 30's and i can still hold a conversation and walk around.. i have been in the hospital and they have done this and the nurtse rechecked me on 3 different monitors. or my idiot doc's try and put me on a crazy high amount of insulin.. i only wiegh about 110 lbs. 7 units of regular insulin in conjunction with my lantus is not a good decision..How do you get your doc's to listen and respect your opinion? anybody got a story or answer? just hearing from someone else would be helpful right now. Thanks!
