Hey all you D/Cers I just got a new Endo. But I feel that even tho my diabetes IS NOT under control I still don't want to go. Why should I? He'll tell me the same damn thing that my old one told me. So here's the question. Should I keep the appointment, or should I cancel it? I need answers all you D/Cers. What do you think I should do? I'm in a quandary. Thanx guys.

You're prejudging the new Endo. Unless you've had contact with him before, you don't know WHAT his approach will be to your diabetes.

Since you have a new relationship, you might be up front with him about your goals and hopes for managing your diabetes. Tell him what YOU want in managing your condition and ask him how he can help you meet those goals.

I would go. If you find that your new endo is difficult, you can always not go back. But at least give the relationship a chance to develop.

Just my opinion

Blessings to you and yours

That's why I love the heck outta you J~A~B!! You are smart and know how to show me what avenues I should or shouldn't take. But after reading your post, & thinking about it, I'll go & do that lab work that he requested from me & go. But your right J~A~B, if our chemistry doesn't mix than your right, I don't have to go back and see him. Thank you kind, & smart sir. U simply R the best!! And hey, everyone's opinion matters!!

I pray that the chemistry DOES work for you, and please give it time to develop.

Thank you so very much for your most kind words! They do mean a lot to me.

Anna I am glad to hear that you are giving yourself a chance to work with a new specialist who most likely will help you get on track to a new healthier you. Visits to a few bad drs sure leaves sour taste. Good luck and I hope you found a great dr.
