Its all relative. I think a lot of people take issue with vague, highly judgmental statements like ‘poor control.’ Why don’t you ask the GP how he defines ‘poor control,’ and get back to us about what his issue is, specifically. He might not even know.
Whatever he says, we will prob just tell him to shove it.
I’ve come to understand that its a natural part of our illness that we need to periodically tell Docs to take their opinion and shove it. Learn to enjoy it because you will prob have to do it many times in your life. You can quit your job as a patient working for Dr Douche Bag anytime you want to. We’ve all met this guy before.
I recall posting this question before myself, once. The question was, fundamentally this, though, “Am I insane or is he insane?” Experience would lead me to believe that it is him. The fact that you do not know what he means by ‘poor control,’ means that he is not giving you any actionable medical advice whatsoever. He’s not saying, “I would like you to reduce the number of lows below 70.” He’s not saying, “I would like you to decrease your A1c.” He’s just being a judgmental piece of ■■■■. That’s unhelpful. You can pay your mother in law $1,200 an hour to be a judgmental POS and it would be money better spent. His job is to work in partnership with you to help make you a better diabetic.
