Sir I am just rejoining this conference after a very long hiatus. Forgive me if I have made a wrong assumption about your gender.
It is important for all of us to make the correct decisions for ourselves - a wonderful woman I know who works in a scientific field reminded me once that each of us, when it comes to our own health care experiences = an experiment or a scientific study with an “N of 1.”
In other words - we each have unique experience. It is our own. We know our bodies best.
And I have learned o we a very tough 8 years since 2010 that i must advocate for myself and what is right for me.
If you are most comfortable with MDI’s and with maintaining a somewhat higher A1C to avoid Hypoglycemic episodes - and your Endocrinologist and health care team keep pushing you to lower your A1C . … perhaps it might be best to find another doc?
Or to stand your ground - although it takes great confidence to to this - and it often isn’t worth it due to the constant haranguing one receives to conform.
You appear to have other chronic health care issues you must deal with.
It took me 8 years to finally get the right team of Doctors (Internist/Endo) in Place - but I can finally say that I feel as though I have been given a “Get out of jail free card” because my current team a) understands me b) respects me and c) validates me and my approach as right for ME.
I wish you all the best.
