"Hello! I am the sister and finally got on tudiabetes. The docs dont know how to diagnose met yet. Technically my glucose tolerance test came up as impaired glucose tolerance as opposed to diabetes but when this all started I had an A1C of 8.6. My…"

"I had one doctor who was gruff and sort of rude and I didn't bother seeing him for very long. I'm perhaps more confident now at 45 than I was when I was 20 something and probably rather wild but I'd find a way to complain about the…"

"Well, this was nearly 7 years ago and I saw him primarily because of the statin problems. At the time, through the Bernstein diet and medication I had gotten my A1c down to 5.9 shortly after diagnosis. When I asked him to take me on as a patient, he…"

"Yeah he can be that way sometimes. But he has also been very helpful to me when I needed him. The first three years after I was diagnosed, I was having a lot of lows and my A1Cs ranged from 4.5-5.5 max. (I was going to the gym before and after every…"

"Brian, how did you handle his lack of interest? He looks at my reports and charts and acts like I am stupid. Last time I saw him, he said my glucose levels are way too low, I was having too many lows, etc. My A1C was 5.6, but I commented it had been…"

"Your sister is one of those in the outlying arenas. Her goals are great and wonderful, but not on the radar of the typical endo. I am not surprised they seem clueless. When I visit endo offices, I just see a lot unhappy and unhealthy people. I find…"

"It is actually quite reasonable to restore normalized blood sugars with LADA. But that doesn't make you ok. It simply means that you can control things temporarily. I have seen Dr. Ross as well, and agree he is gruff. He helped me with my…"

"Thanks everyone for your advice so far. Spock, I am a type 1 myself and actually Dr Ross is my endo too. I like him and would give him good reviews. I like him better then my endo is Europe (where i am living now) But, we could not get her an…"
