I guess I should start off by explaining a little bit about my Diabetic history. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes about 7 years ago, right after my 15th birthday. Was first put on insulin to later be on pills because my doctor at the time told me my numbers were "too good"! About a month a later I was put back on insulin. Everything was going great until I got pregnant with my daughter, which was to be expected. Shortly after giving birth to my daughter I went back to my endocrinologist where i handed him my meter to read all my blood sugar readings. Well of course the first they do at the doctor is test your blood sugar along with all your other vital signs. The last time I saw my doctor was over a year and a half ago, where when I arrived at the office my blood sugar was 112. I had been up for 5 hours and hadn't yet eaten anything. Every time I test my sugar it's somewhere between 300-500! I am no longer on insulin and havn't been in about a year and a half. My doctor refuses to put me on anything to get my Diabetes under control! I am very fearful for what may happen to me if I can't get my doctor to listen to me. My last A1C was 5.4 which didn't make any sense to me either since my sugars stay so high, but then again that was taken right after my daughter was born when I was still on insulin. Any suggestions?
