I read a lot of stories on here about people not getting what they obviously need. There are people who are pretty obviously type 1 or LADA who are misdiagnosed as type 2 and STILL not getting the insulin they need, and driving themselves crazy to avoid it; there are people whose doctors refuse to do antibody tests, there are people whose doctors don't spend enough time explaining things, or don't refer them for the diabetic education they need . . .
In the end, each and every one of us is responsible for our own treatment. If your doctor isn't helping you and you haven't fired him or her, why not?
