Apparently I haven't been paying attention to how much I weighed when I was diagnosed.
We all know that weight scales are different so you would assume and know that hospitals are more accurate. I thought I lost a good 6lbs since being diagnosed but today I had another doctor appointment and they said I gained 2lbs. The doctor seemed really mad at me. Basically , he said that my medications I'm taking are workin as a 'miracle' pilll as of now but won't work as long. He cut down my glipizide from a 10 to a 5mg but I only take it once a day.
What I'm wondering is why is he being so negative towards me? I heard having diabetes, no matter how hard you work out, it's still hard to lose weight. I'm not trying to make an excuse but shouldn't my good blood results prove that I've been working or and dieting hard??? I have told him I haven't been eating and working out since the last 2 weeks but I still try but it seems like my efforts are not being appreciated and congratulated. He told me to call him in a month and see how the lower dosage pills is helping my blood . Yet!!! He didn't even me a phone # to reach him at and I had to mention it and he got embarrassed and handled me his card. *rolls eyes*
I really dislike this hospital and the doctors, staff etc. I've had nothing but trouble here and also the stupid pharmacy I go to.
