Just got back from my appointment. And what a friggin waste of time! The doctor started naggin on me about my weight, as if i don’t know about it already since about 15 years back! And just kept talking about type 2 all the time when i firmly told him i’ve ONLY had high readings for the past month and I’m feeling worse even though I’ve cut down on carbohydrates quite a bit, along with the fact that I had a virus infection and an ear infection at the same time earlier this year and had 2 vaccinations in the same day in June despite the fact that it has felt my body is against me since my illnesses in spring. But at least the doctor shut up long enough for me to mention I wanted to have the Type 1 tests done because I’m just 23 years old, more active than ever, I am working on loosing my extra weight, eating less and more healthy than before, and it’s only been a month with these high readings. But yeah, I wasted a lot of time, because not even one test was taken today! Only BP which was slightly high but i blame that on not being resting properly before, and never being able to relax while they take those tests… I can never relax my arm when they take BP on the upper arm! And at the moment I’m also pretty stressed about a lot of things.
So still no answers, and I’ll have to go back on wednesday to have bloodtests taken! He wanted me to come tomorrow morning, but then I said I couldn’t because I’m working tomorrow. My only workday this week! I’ve already missed work today because I got such a stupid time for the appointment! Oh, and the doctor asked me if I was fasting now… Of course I wasn’t fasting! My appointment was at 2pm for crying out loud! And at the moment I can eat like a horse and still feel hungry or be hungry again an hour later, so good luck with fasting until 2pm angry
At least that doctor did agree it was a good idea to run the antibody test too on wednesday! One small victory at least…
But this is really the reason why I got a glucose monitor at home! My not so good experience with the medical system!
