New Doctor

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

I'm going to see an Endocrinologists this afternoon. With my A1c going up so high is 3 months I decided to see diabetes specialist to see if I can get a new perspective on whats going on. I feel like I'm starting from step one. I'm hoping she'll give me some good motivation to get going. I think I've let the stress in life get me off track. I'll check in later and let you know what happens.

    Best of luck with your endocrinologist!

Ours started us on his paleo/low-carb diet: it's primarily intended for diabetics, but I'm not diabetic, and I'm on it purely for weight loss (and whatever metabolic corrections it can impart). It's been GREAT for me. He also says that he believes that if we can get my husband to comply, he may be able to stop any meds for his uncontrolled Type 2 ... which we're hoping for!

Some doctors haven't come around to the low-carb thing, but I think (and hope) that since one of the primary benefits listed is diabetes management, perhaps at least the endocrinologists will have taken up the banner. I pray yours is one of them!

Please update us!

    Dear PHOTOMUM,
I think that's a good idea. Some family doctors are good at helping you manage your diabetes and some aren't. Hopefully this doctor will be someone you can work with to get your A1c down. Stress can also raise your A1c and you have had a lot to deal with lately. Good luck with the new doctor and remember they're working for you so if you don't like this one, keep looking until you find one that you feel is helping you.

Let us know how your visit went!
