Doctor listened to my diabetes woes…


He listened and even acknowledged he should have been following this more carefully and been more aggressive In treatment.

I am now on an increased does of my Glipizide and he added 2 500 mg tablets of Metformin. Now we wait to see if it helps.

I need to take my sugar count every day and take my list or meter into the doctor in my next appointment in a month. I have been taking it everyday anyhow.

I am so glad he listened and treated me this time. He said we might have to consider an endocrinologist if his treatment doesn’t work. I told him about my numbers and the insulin in the hospital and he seemed happy that maybe I would just go on insulin. If the increased treatment doesn’t work I may have to go on it, like it or not, but not ready for that yet.

Went to theĀ store and got fresh fruit and Veggies plus protein to add to diet each meal. And protein just before bed from what I remember.

The plus, thank the Lord, is my diabetes meds are free through the stores program where I get my medications refilled. I can’t complain about that.

      He did try to blame it all on me and so I brought up everything that had been going on for years with it and he finally admitted he was partly to blame.
