I went to see my doctor yesterday, I have been since diagnosis in October 2009 Type 2 been doing everything I have needed to do. I lost over 40 pounds, have been tracking my numbers which are always between 75 - 125 at the most a little higher if i have a stressful day. Now my issue is this has anyone's doctor ever told them not to track their numbers? when first diagnosed this doctor told me do not track your numbers I'm putting you on Metformin 3 times a day 2,250 per day see you in a month, I go back in a month I have lost some weight at that point she gives me my glucometer tells me to track my bs levels at random times of the day and drops my metformin to 2000 a day, tells me to come back in three months, well I went back yesterday and I have been tracking my numbers consistently lost over 40 pounds by changing what I eat and walking. I take my blood pressure daily which is always between 100/70 or inbetween those numbers but not high. I was put on high blood medication upon diagnosis due to my blood pressure being 160/100, but I have the white coat lab syndrome and it's always high when I go to the doctor/dentist. Anyhow my doctor told me she was not interested in my numbers at all nor did she want to see my record of my numbers both the blood pressure and blood sugar and that at the time of diagnosis she forgot to put me on ACTOS…she said don't take your blood sugar numbers for a month take Metformin and Actos and I will see you in the middle of June, I was very upset that she would not even listen to me.
Sorry it's so long but this is disturbing to me and she said she wanted to put me on a higher dosage of Blood pressure meds but refused to look at my log my numbers. I'm faithful in all I do for my diabetes and blood pressure my numbers are really good how could a doctor tell me not to check my blood and just take the meds…has this happened to anyone?
