The doctor which I was going to let me go with raising blood sugars which if he was a good doctor who read my blood sugars should have dianosed me with type 2 in 2002. His office got really upset when I had called a month after I had a fasting blood sugar done and had asked but not received a copy of my results (which were 300+). No one had looked at my results until I called! He had me get another fasting done this time a 12 hour fasting (320) had me come in that day. He just happened to give me the results of all of the tests which had been ordered on me from day one that I started with him. Happy to have them in hand I took them to my new doctor. Found a good doctor through a friend who is prediabetic.
The only problem is the new doctor is about 37 miles from where I work and live. The old doctor's office was 32 miles. I really do not see much of a difference. But at my annual review at work my bosses are worried that I am going to have a medical emergency at their office. I carry sugar gel and tablets, monitor and all my medication with me. Blood sugar is under control. The medication which I am taking my doctor tells me does not put on into hypoglycemic sitituation.
I also live alone. Took a key to my house and put it in my office and told my boss and one other person that if I do not show up to work at my usual time to use the key and check on me. Also have posted near my desk what the signs of hypo and hyperglycemic are and what to do. Now I also have my doctors phone number and the hospital to take me and other people to notify.
I realize they are worried about the liability issues with me working there with a know case of diabetes. I feel like they have a different attitude toward me and my ability to work with diabetes.
Has anyone else experienced a change in attitudes when people found out about you having diabetes?
