So after my first appointment with the CDE, where I literally learned nothing, I essentially gave up on that service. The CDE also advised me that I only needed to test once a day (I’m on insulin). Rather than go to the effort to find a new CDE willing and able to support my goals, I just decided to be my own advisor and let my meter be my guide.
Am I missing out on something valuable here?
The same story and question apply to me experience with the dietitian.
