As I stated in my last post my Doctor had her nurse call to tell me that I was diabetic and that she called in a script for me. I went and got the Metformin and have been taking it. I had a few questions so i call her office. I asked why was I not having to test my blood sugar levels? The nurse proceeds to tell me that I am on the meds and i dont need to be testing my blood sugar. I know from experince that is not right. When I was prego and had gestational diabetes I had to test. My father had type 2 and I watched him test his 2 sometimes 3 times a day. I know its is important to do so. I called back to the doctor office and very plainly told them I wanted to speak with the Doctor no a nurse. I am feeling as if I am being left in the dark about whats going on and my doctor is avoiding me. I am to the pont of throwing my hands in the air and yelling I give up. What are we supposed to do when the doctor we trusts can not or will not tell us what we need to know ore help to ease our fears. I am n o fool and i have seen what diabetes can and will do to the body. Sorry for ranting but I needed to letting it out. I have become not only stress out but angry over this.
