I was told by my family practioner, when I was diagnosed as type 1 this past June, that if everyone that has diabetes in our area wanted to see an endocrinologist they would not be able too. He was almost right, the earliest appointment I could see one is not until Oct 21. My regular doctor has me on the traditional pen bolus injections before each meal based on the amount of carbs I will be eating and the long lasting insulin injection once a day. I monitor my glucose levels 6 to 7 times a day and have had only two hypo readings. This has brought down my A1c level from 14.8% to 7.9%.
I would like to have advice on what I should ask the endocrinologist at this first visit.
