About two weeks ago, I called Dexcom to get some information about a CGM Then, I went to their site and printed off the forms that they had for a questionnaire. They had a section where my doctor needed to sign. So, I sent him a letter, along with instructions to fill out that page and send it back to me.
He changed the section where I marked off 8-10 injections per day and he wrote "was on insulin pump but came off of it 2 years ago"
He marked the box that says: Hypoglycemic Unawareness (which is totally un-true)
So, I’m have been majorly pissed off since I got the letter back from him and am teetering on the edge of having a “talking to” with him. Please let me know if I am out of bounds with my anger.
Thing is, I’m trying to get my private pilot’s license. If it’s ANYWHERE in my records that I’m hypoglycemic unaware, then I CANNOT get my license… EVER.
I have never had signs of hypoglycemia unawareness. I can feel myself going low when I’m in the 60s. I may have hyp-er glycemia unawareness, when I don’t feel sick until I’m over 200. But, that doesn’t pose an immediate risk to my health, so the Pilot’s Association doesn’t care about that as much.
So, I want to scream and punch my Endo right now because he’s messing with my life.
But, I’m trying to just calm down first.
What would you do?
Please help, because I’ve been through about 5 Endos in the past 10 years and there really aren’t any good ones around here. There is only ONE other Endo in my entire state whom I haven’t seen so far.
And I’m really not that picky about my doctors. I just want someone who LISTENS to me.
