So earlier this week I went in to my endo and he told me that I needed to work on weight reduction. I'm type one keep in mind, and by no means overweight. I am a young teen, 5'4", and 102 lbs. if I lost weight in the range he has suggested ( 10-25lbs ), I will be dangerously underweight. My a1c is high, at a bad 12.9 ( I know, but I'm in that denial/ busy stage in the disease, please understand) and though I wonder if this is the cause he has asked me to lose the weight, it still seems a really drastic change to me! I've been thinking of changing to a different endo, but it's hard to find one here that accepts people under 18, and I would have to get to one a whole state over, so should I switch doctors? Please help!!!!
