I’ve been type 1 for 18 years and am 22 weeks pregnant. Control has been good, although I’m still having some lows, and my A1C is 5 3.
The issue is finding a decent endo. I started with one who specializes in prenatal diabetes. We had a disagreement (which was stupid and caused by my anxiety after having a miscarriage last year). She is a four hour roundtrip drive away from me, so I decided to transfer. Ended up finding an ob I like pretty well and she referred me to a local endo. This one has been terrible. She wanted me to come weekly. I requested biweekly (seriously unnecessary given how well my blood sugars have been and the fact I wear a cgm). She also wanted me to check six times a day because Dex isn’t FDA approved for pregnancy.
So I played along for six weeks. At every appointment she harped on my having a big baby, how I can’t rely on Dex and other various things that aren’t an issue (no lady I am not swollen nor have I ever had morning sickness-thanks for asking again) and she just wasn’t on the same page as the ob or mfm. At my last appointment I told her coming every two weeks seemed ridiculous. She threw a fit and was pretty rude but said I’m a good patient so she would allow monthly appointments. Great.
But I was so irritated with her I made an appointment with the first endo. Honestly no one seems to be on the same page, but it probably can’t get worse. Has anyone else had trouble with their care team?
