I have type 2 diabetes., newly "diagnosed". I've been in denial for a while but just had another 2 hr blood sugar and it wasn't good. I'm no longer a "pre" diabetic. So.. my GYN (who did this test for me) is suggesting an Endocronologist. He called him special for me cuz he's booked until Feb! They're trying to find a spot for me since My Dr. referred me, but this guy doesn't take my insurance. So, it will be $ out of pocket. I'm thinking I should see someone in my network because I'm going to start a relationship with this Dr. Right? And will be visiting every few months or so? How often do you see yours?
I know many people just see their primary DR who manages their medicine routing. Do you recommend and Endocronologist?
My GYN put me on 1500 mg. of Extended release Metformin. I was on a 1 x a day 1000 mg. dose (not extended). which didn't seem to do much. It bothers my stomach. i'm going to just have to grin and bear it I guess? THANKS…
