Does anyone else just give a blank stare when asked this by a doctor? It's usually not my endo, but the ophthalmologist or GP asking. If that question were easy to answer, I probably wouldn't have diabetes. I can tell you my latest A1c, my last blood sugar level, or give you a log from the last few weeks. But how do you expect me to sum up the ups and downs of diabetes in a sentence?
Do you want my sugar when I wake up in the morning? When I go to sleep? When I underestimate the amount of food I ate or overestimate? When I estimate just right, but have an infection? When I'm having my period? When I'm working or during the weekend? When I'm stressed? When I'm relaxed? When I've been gardening? What answer are they expecting me to give?
