Well I had my 3 month checkup today and found out that everything is fine Diabetes wise. A1C 5.8 and lost 14 lbs since November. Quit smoking etc… but also decided to terminate my relationship with the new doctor going forward. I just don't feel comfortable with him. (this was my second visit with him) so I'm going back to my old doctor in May as he has now joined the Hospital group that I want to be in. My Diabetes is under control and he said I didn't have to come back for 6 months which is a good thing but his general approach to my health care was a little lacking. So I got home and scheduled an appt with the old doctor for 3 months from now and as soon as I get all my lab work from todays' visit I will cancel the next appt with this guy. Sometimes you just have to do what feels right and I don't like the guy plain and simple. He doesn't want to deal with any of my other issues just the blood pressure and diabetes and they are both under control. Multiple infections over 3 months should have triggered a conversation with him about possible causes but he didn't want to go there… sigh. I had a conference call with my dentist and my gynecologist on Wed.. they were more helpful than the Diabetes guy… Oh well they work for us and if it's not a good fit it's time to move one. I also saw the opthomalogist today and everything is fine there as well!! yay!
Just an update. ( I had an infection in a tooth last week, took antibiotics AGAIN and then a root canal on Tuesday. My jaw locked open and he had to push it back into place and almost broke it.. tooth hurts like heck so I'm back on antibiotics for the 7th time in 3 months. This is not good and could be potentially dangerous if something comes along that I need them again for. Oh well I'll live and through it all my blood sugar is low (strange) and my metformin cut in half now and I'm still smokefree… :) 17 days!!
Take care everyone and remember if your doctor isn't giving you the care you think he/she should. It's time to move on!
