As some of you may know I've been having a lot of problems with my BG's lately. I've been trying to talk with my Endo for the last week and can't get in touch with him. I'm dealing with his nurses instead. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that they aren't great but I'm really stressing out. Last week I got some lab results from a urine sample my family doctor took. I got a call from the family doc a few hours after the test saying the lab was concerned. Since I was unable to reach the Endo's office she made some adjustments to my insulin and had me call the Endo's office in the morning. Well I've been adjusting my insulin with them but am now back to 465. I'm also having some pain in my side that could be a sign that I'm having another bout of Gastritis. When I talked with the nurse this morning she said she would talk with my Endo and have him call me back to let me know what to do. I asked if I should go to the Family doc to have her check me out or maybe even the ER and she told me no. Since the main problem is with my BG's they think I should wait to see what the Endo wants to do. Well I'm still waiting and no answer yet. Since last wednesday we have added an additional 15 units Novolog with each meal and 17 units on my Lantus. I have a history of dropping low and am concerned I may crash. The family doc's nurse suggested I wait for the Endo to call back as well so I'm stuck waiting for him to decide. Does anyone else have this problem with getting their doc's to call back? I'm starting to feel like they aren't even listening to me anymore. I have been running high (as High as 600) for close to a month now and all they suggest is adding more insulin. I had one low of 62 when I didn't eat enought lunch on Friday but beyond that I've pretty much been in the 250-420 range. I am so frustrated!
