Today, went with DH for his first appointment with the diabetes dept, transferred from neurology. First he got chewed out for his bad diabetes, then later the doc said his diabetes numbers were quite good - A1c 6.6 - but that he's five years away from kidney dialysis. His previous doctor said his diabetes meds may need to be reduced because of the load on other organs. Well, my earlier question here about diabetic and kidney diets being contradictory may be irrelevant now. Looks like I need a kidney cookbook. But sheesh, I wish he could get a doctor we could trust. Bad diabetes results? Good diabetes results? Well, hello, make up your mind! DH will probably change hospital within the next few months to one which has a better reputation for treatment of diabetes.
