No confidence in medical care

I am 66, a T2, with medical care at Kaiser. As I have written here before, when I was first diagnosed there 6 years ago, I had an infected toe. They cut it off. My first A1c was 9.1. Three months…Continue

I'm going on vacation soon and when I saw Walgreen's little True2Go meter I thought, that looks like it would be easy to take along. So I bought one, along with 100 strips. The meter is very small…Continue

"Well, that's interesting. I've never heard of that before. It totally goes against my personal experience, but I guess One Size Does NOT Fit All with this disease."

Cosumne Jan replied to Richard157's discussion 'Starvation Diet, 1915'
"Just by coincidence, I'm a T2 who has been on pretty close to a starvation for the past 5 days. My blood sugar had been slowly creeping up into the 100-115 range over the past year. I was on the same low carb diet I've been on for 7 years,…"

"OK, don't laugh at this. Put a bar of soap under your bottom sheet, near your legs. I know, this is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of, and I have found no scientific reason why it should work, but it does. I started out with the same…"

Cosumne Jan replied to Spock's discussion 'VERY Mundane and Terrifiying Topic: Dry, Cracked and Bleeding Feet.'
"I have pitiful feet. They go in cycles, for a while they're good and then I'll get a blister that I swear is not caused by anything external, it comes from the inside and works its way out. I can get calluses in a week. When I do have a…"

Cosumne Jan replied to Nicole's discussion 'what does 'real bad' mean?!'
"It's quite possible that fellow got his information directly from his own doctor. I have been told by a doctor or two that I'm lucky to have T2 because T1 is the "bad" kind. And then I was handed a diet that was destined to fail,…"

Cosumne Jan replied to CatTutt's discussion 'What kind of eating plan do you follow?'
"I've been doing low carb with a touch of Paleo for several years now. In a while, after you ditch the carbs, your hunger dissipates. Some days I have to remind myself to eat, and I eat a lot less than I used to. It's not hard to eat…"

Cosumne Jan replied to Manny Hernandez's discussion 'What if you could get insulin without needles?'
"I'm T2 and am becoming concerned because, even though I have myself on the strictest low carb diet imaginable, my A1Cs have been creeping up. My problem, like a lot of T2s, is not post prandial, it's tied to the Dawn Phenomenon. I can…"

"When you're a doctor, Guitarnut, please remember how you felt as a patient. I have never been allowed to see an endo because my blood sugar is too low (Kaiser's opinion). I can say I'm never nervous about seeing the doctors I do see,…"

Cosumne Jan commented on David K's group 'A1C Below 6.0 On Diet and Exercise ONLY'
"MM, you might want to check out Mark's Daily Apple. It's a site where there's lots of input about low carb and exercise. I believe they will say that your legs do not need carbs after a run...nor before it."

Cosumne Jan replied to david-1968's discussion 'I understand DENIAL but it annoys me when Diabetics complain about their health and don't take care of themselves.'
"My experience with the doctors I've seen is pretty much the same as what you've said, Scott. I feel the only thing that saved me was doing my own investigation when the things they were telling me didn't seem logical."

Cosumne Jan replied to david-1968's discussion 'I understand DENIAL but it annoys me when Diabetics complain about their health and don't take care of themselves.'
