I was just diagnosed about a month ago, after the rapid onset of symptoms and high blood glucose readings. (I'm being treated as type 2, as the hospital doctors have refused to run c-peptide and antibody tests in spite of my requests, and I'm responding to a low dose of metformin.)
The problem is, my own doctor (a naturopath) doesn't have drug prescribing rights, and I'm hesitant to use online no-prescription pharmacies to obtain the metformin.
I have a prescription for the first few months from the hospital clinic, but they don't do follow up and I'll need to find someone who can renew it. The problem is, I don't visit "family doctors"/GPs, because I'm ethically opposed to some parts of their 'medical practice.'
I'm looking for someone with prescribing rights who maintains an ethical practice -- e.g., who doesn't use unchaste diagnostic or treatment procedures (bodily exposure, sexual violation) with any of his/her clients. Obviously, I need to be able to trust and respect anyone whom I am consulting, so I consider this a must. I've emailed several organizations who work in the area of women's health/advocacy/rape counselling, but so far been provided with no leads on an ethical doctor/clinic.
Can anyone help?
