It seems we all experience a full range of emotions just with dealing with diabetes, let alone the rest of our full lives. I think I went through the full range of emotions in a few moments as I processed my latest experience.
My primary care doctor wanted to see me after my latest blood work. I've been going to him for 5 years, and he initially made the diagnosis that I was a diabetic 2.5 years ago.
He told me my A1c was 6.0,and out of control. He said I needed to be around 5.2. I said, "but doctor, I'm a diabetic, and my A1c has gone from 6.5 to 6.0 over the past 6 months." He said, "really, oh. You don't look like a type 2 diabetic." I explained, even though I know my endo sent him the reports, that my early blood work showed the presence of antibodies indicating I was a 1.5 or LADA, not a type 2. He said, "but you don't use insulin." After a bit of discussion he said, "well, your numbers look good then. Come back in 6 months."
I'm looking for a new primary care.
